Do You Know?

1. What is the most consumed drink in the word, excluding water?

Tea, about 3.7 billion cups of tea are consumed on a daily basis.

2. What country consumes the most amount of tea in the world?

Turkey, yes really their consumption equates to over 6.8lbs of tea a year per person, which equates to approx 1300 cups vs the UK who consumes 4.3lb and the US at 0.5lb, don't worry we will change this.

3. It takes around 2,000 tiny leaves to make just one pound of finished tea

This equate to approx 160 cups of tea.

4. Tea grows on trees.

Tea bushes are actually trees and If left to grow and not trimmed, they can grow as tall as nearly 100 feet and live 50 years or more.

How many different Teas are there?

As many as 3000 different teas so if you tried a new Tea every day it would take more than eight years to go through the whole 3000.

Did you know, in England it is considered bad luck to leave your Christmas decorations up after the “twelfth night” of Christmas, generally accepted as the 5th January however some argue it is the 6th, it all depends whether you count Christmas night as night 1 or not.

Twelfth night is a festival in some branches of Christianity marking the beginning of Epiphany. The day of Epiphany, when the three wise men came – is on January 6.

England is not alone in this, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic follow this tradition

We will continue to observe the twelfth night “rule” and will be taking our Christmas decorations down on the 5th January (only feels like yesterday that we put them up) so if you want a last chance to indulge with our festive decorations call today to make your reservation 508-927-4402

Do you know what “Boxing Day” is?

Many of you would have heard of the term Boxing Day, but do you know its origins?

Boxing Day in the UK is on 26th December and is a national holiday along with Christmas day, however boxing day has nothing to do with fighting, Boxing Day originates back when Queen Victoria reigned on the throne in the 1800s, the name in fact comes from a time when the rich would box up gifts to give to the poor.

Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants - a day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters.

The servants would also get to go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.
Churches also played a part in the creation of Boxing Day, throughout the year they would collect money from churchgoers in the form of weekly collections and then hand this out at Christmas.

Many of them stored the collection money in a box, which they opened on Christmas Day. The money was then handed out to the poor the next day - on Boxing Day.

Today, those boxes aren't as popular. However some people leave out extra money for people like paper boys and girls, bin men and such in the weeks before Christmas, and call it a Christmas box.

The main traditions of boxing day are Football (soccer) and turkey sandwiches, interestingly football matches would always be played on Christmas Day up until the 1950`s when it became frowned upon and moved to the 26th, Boxing Day, there is always a full schedule on this day and as most people are off work it is highly viewed, the second tradition is turkey sandwiches made from the leftover turkey that is traditional at English dinner tables on Christmas Day!

We are open everyday over the Christmas period apart from Christmas day and the 31st December!
