Time for a cuppa

March 1st, 2015

This week at Teacup, we’re supporting Dementia UK’s “Time for a Cuppa” campaign.  This annual campaign’s aim is to raise enough money so that Admiral Nurses can be made available to everyone who needs one.  These nurses offer specialist support for carers and suffers of dementia.  You can read more about what they do here.

To help raise money for this cause, we will be donating £2 for every Cream Tea sold between now and the 8th March.  This donation is included within the price of the menu option but if you’d like to donate any more, there’s a collection box by the host desk at the front of the restaurant.

During this week, we’ll be running extra promotions on Facebook and Twitter to help boost the amount of money we can raise so please keep an eye out for that:)

50 Shades of Grey this week at Teacup (well, almost!)

February 9th, 2015

To celebrate the film launch event of the year, we’ve got a very special menu lined up for you this week.  Whether you’re going to see the film or not, pop in and try one of our 50 Shades of Grey;)

This menu could possess you and obsess you… or at least make you smile to yourself as you take a tantalising taste trip through the list.  They are all loose leaf, and served by the pot.  Some of these brews should be taken naked, but feel free to add a little S&M (sugar and milk) if the mood takes you.

There may not quite be 50 varieties on here but you can have any of the brews made as an iced tea as a cool alternative:)

Why not upgrade to a Cream Tea with some Limited Edition Earl Grey Madeleines?  This delicious option is available on selected teas for £7.30*

Imperial Earl Grey 4.20

Tippy Earl Grey 4.20

Rosey Grey 4.20

Blue Lady 4.30

Green Earl Grey 4.30

Princess Grey 4.50

Rooibos Earl Grey 4.50

Lady Felicity 4.60

Snowflower Grey 4.90

Darjeeling Earl Grey 4.90

These loose leaf Earl Greys are best savoured over several infusions, so ask your server for more hot water.
