"If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you."
William Ewart Gladstone
Former British Prime Minister
"Tea, tea, tea. Where would I be without tea? Wherever you may be, always enjoy a nice pot of tea...or two..!"

Contact The Elderly
Every year, my wife Sandra and I host an afternoon tea for the Contact The Elderly a national charity. Some elderly people attend our home and we treat them to afternoon tea, chats and a walk around our gardens. Photo below shows the event held on Sunday 4th June 2016.
The Tiny Teapot
Two wasted visits to The Tiny Teapot in Biddenden; but we can confirm that is it temporarily closed until the new owners confirm the reopening dates. However, The Bakehouse right opposite is equally as nice but is not open on Sundays or Mondays.
Mad Hatter Tea Room,
We are sad learn that Peter has decided to close the Mad Hatter Tea Room in Margate, after many years. Peter has a new partner, and wishes spend more time enjoying life. We wish him well, although England will lose a great tea room, and a great tea room character. He will be sadly and deeply missed by all.
