National Tea Day 2023- a year for Tea pairing

This year we celebrate National Tea Day with a tribute to Tea pairing. In partnership with our speciality tea partners, we have designed a 12 course tea pairing of exquisite, rare and exclusive tea paired with delectable dishes prepared by the culinary team at the iconic The Dorchester. A sophisticated gathering of industry experts from the elite hospitality sector. From around the world we bring you a global insight and authentic perspective from tea specialists from the UK, Europe, India, Japan, Sri Lanka and China.

Guests will enjoy a captivating, serenely elegant and authentic Japanese Tea ceremony by our Japanese tea expert and sip on preciously aged Chinese tea prepared by taking a modern twist on ancient rituals. Featuring compelling insight and top hospitality Teatime trends from your host The Tea Group. Guests will learn more about the positive impact of social enterprise tea from our partners. Attendees can expect the unexpected with tea & seafood, tea & cheese, tea with meat, tea served in a wine glass and a showcase of organic fermented tea.

Contemporary commemorative Art piece in memory of Queen Elizabeth II

National Tea Day falls on 21st April which also happens to be the late Queen Elizabeth II birthday. In 2023 we will creatively collate 1000’s of selfies of British Tea lover’s along with other mediums which will be mosaicked together by award winning artist David Arnott to create an iconic art piece. You can also expect to see celebrities and our favourite British brands coming together to be part of this fabulously creative campaign. The art work will then be taken on a tour around the country, to be initially unveiled in September. Ultimately the art piece will be auctioned in January 2024 with all proceeds being donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH.)
