Here's how to get free cups of tea for #FreeTeaDay

If there’s one thing that Brits love above all else, it’s tea.

Whether you prefer yours in a fine china cup and saucer (with a slice of lemon on the side), or strong and sugary in a World’s Best Boss mug, there aren’t many of us who’d turn down a cuppa…

Especially a free cuppa, at that.

Which is why Wednesday just got a helluva lot more exciting.

The Teapigs team have announced that they will be dishing out more than 100,000 brews across the country in celebration of Free Tea Day.

Because, yes, that is a thing.


So how do we get our mitts on a free cuppa?


There’s free tea all day long at Waterloo, London's busiest station.

And, if you’re not planning on hitting Waterloo, you can still grab a free tea from the Tea Bus (which is roving the city all day) or from Charing Cross, Liverpool Street, and King's Cross between 7am-9.30am. Tweet the Teapigs Tea Bus with your location, using the hashtag #teapigsfreeteaday (and, yes, we’ll definitely be trying that out for ourselves later).

Non-Londoners will be able to enjoy a free tea between the hours of 7am and 9.30 am all over the country; hit up one of the commuter hubs, such as Bristol, Birmingham New Street, Newcastle, Manchester, and Leeds for your brew, or as above, tweet your location with the hashtag.

So why are Teapigs being so generous? Because it’s their 10th birthday, and they want to share their biodegradable ‘tea temples’ with the world.

And, if you’re not a fan of the classic English Breakfast tea (and who are you heathens?), then don’t despair: there's a range of punchy herbal teas on offer, too.

Think peppermint, chamomile, oolong, rooibos, chocolate mint, jelly and ice cream, chilli chai and matcha green tea, for just a few examples.

Roll on the tea bus…
