It doesn’t take much to convince us to have tea, but when we see people on TV or in a movie enjoying tea, we can’t help but wish we were sipping our own cup of Creamy Earl Grey!
Do you have a favourite TV show or movie in which the characters enjoy tea? If so, tell us on Facebook by 3/15 for a chance to win a free pot of tea and a scone!
You’ll get an extra entry into the drawing if you describe the scene. We look forward to hearing your recommendations–mostly so we can find some new favourite movies and shows to enjoy!
