Kensington Roof Gardens, London

Up on the roof at Kensington Roof Gardens

Anybody who’s anybody in the world of tea was sure to be found at this year’s National Tea Day Festival, and Percy’s was no exception! It was a real delight to showcase all that we offer and stir things up on the tea scene with the quintessentially British beverage with a twist.

Garden partiers mingled happily with likeminded tea lovers, and all were wowed by tasting opportunities galore as artisan blenders from around the globe National Tea Daypresented their niche wares.

The capital provided the perfect backdrop and the weather was on our side, allowing the gardens to be appreciated in their full glory. Plus a royal visit from Queen Victoria (lookalike!) more than compensated for the all-too-brief appearance of the sun…

For those musing over the perfect accompaniment to their cuppa, the celebrity baking masterclass came up trumps and the rooftops were awash with ‘ooooohs’ and ‘aaaaahs’ of sweet treat appreciation.

Just when it seemed things couldn’t get any better, the day took an unexpected and eccentric twist as professional dancers shimmied their way in and captivated the crowd with their specially choreographed tea dance!

Everyone was buzzing with all that’s trending in tea and it was a real treat to be involved and catch up with some familiar faces – Jing Tea, The Tea People, Green Lady Tea and Siren Craft Brew to name but a few partners.   Roll on next time!

With summer drawing ever closer, we at Percy’s intend to take the spirit of the festival forward and keep the party going. With that in mind, why not take advantage of this month’s special offer? It continues for the rest of April in recognition of this official celebration of the nation’s favourite drink… Just enter TEA at the checkout to claim 10% off your order.
