With excitement and more than a tinge of sadness we loaded up Cedric for his final leg of the teapigs tea tour.
The venue, Oake Manor, for Somersets very own ‘Party in the Park’ a weekend jam packed with live music, festivities and of course a rather fine teapigs Tea Van.Read More
The penultimate event on the 2012 real tea tour was the Strumer of Love set in the picturesque surroundings of the Blackdown Hills.

Event number seven on the teapigs Real Tea Tour was the Taunton Flower Show.
Having lived in Taunton for a combined 33 years we have never previously attended the show. In our naivety we heard “Flower Show” and envisaged chrysanthemums and antihistamines, we are pleased to say that we were very much mistaken!Read More
On the tail end of a fantastic week of sunshine we were rearing to go for the 2012 Lowland Games, not to be confused with the other sporting events taking place in London this month!
We were pleased to finally have the weather to trial our two delicious iced-teas (Lemon and Ginger with Elder Flower and Early Grey with Lemon). Freshly brewed and served over ice.Read More
The two day event allowed proud owners to showcase their military vehicles, classic cars and aeroplanes. There were also several trade stands with a wide selection of war memorabilia including uniforms and weaponry.
Driving into the airfield was like an episode of Goodnight Sweetheart. Members of several historical re-enactment clubs were dressed from head to toe in authentic army uniforms, surrounded by WWII vehicles.Read More
The fourth leg of the Real Tea Tour was The Taunton Show held at Taunton School, The Somerset Hogwarts!
This was the 3rd year of the event with a great turnout in previous years, this year was no exception.
The event is organised on behalf of the Go Commando charity who put on a great display during the day getting all the children (and some of the adults) involved in the obstacle course and several rounds of tug-of-war.Read More
Having spent 10 hours serving delicious teapigs brews to the Cheese and Cider festival attendees, there was enough time for 6 hours sleep before rising (with cheese hangovers) to head East for the Green Scythe Fair – episode 3 in the Real Tea Tour.
Setting up at 10am there was a unique vibe with the tranquillity only briefly being interrupted by the sound of blacksmiths or stall holders pitching marquees.Read More
The second leg of the teapigs real tea tour took place at Quantock View, a picturesque location on the edge of the Quantock Hills.
The Quantock View’s converted barn, marquees and beautiful grounds made it a pleasure to be working! We were slighly unfortunate with the weather but this didn’t effect the atmosphere at all!Read More
The first leg of the teapigs real tour had us heading to Lynmouth on the Devon coast for the annual LLAMA Music Festival.
Having both attended the event on previous occasions (as music fans) we were pleased to be attending the festival with Cedric and a plethora of delicious whole leaf teapigs teas.Read More
