We all love a brew. The statistics prove we are a nation of tea drinkers, with 165 million cups drunk daily in Britain. Tea really is the nation’s staple, whether we are at work or at home we won’t miss out on a good cuppa. This month is National Cream Tea Day (28th June 2019) when people will celebrate this great afternoon tradition with a scone or two and a pot of tea.
At Norwich Sunblinds, we’re partial to a cuppa and stock fabrics inspired by the nation’s favourite. We thought for a bit of fun we’d make tea the focus of this blog. Whether it’s tea inspired fabrics or images of gorgeous blinds and curtains featuring teacups. Grab your favourite brew and have a relaxing read…
