Little Urn – our lovingly converted ice cream van – has been stupidly busy this week looking after London’s lovebirds and tweeters. He’s been spreading the love of Yorkshire Tea for Hard Water – tea that’s specially blended to give people living in hard water areas, like London, a proper brew. If you’re quick, you can catch him today at Nottingham Fine Food Markets before he flies back up North on the M1. Here’s a quick glimpse into Little Urn’s diary…
Tuesday 14 February: Valentine’s Day
First up, we parked up and served up Yorkshire Tea for Hard Water to London’s loved up couples at Canary Wharf Ice Rink in Canada Square Park from 2pm to 7pm. Heidi and the crew worked wonders warming the hands and hearts of over 200 grateful Valentines with proper brews. There was plenty of canoodling going on between tea sipping and some far from professional skating. Lots of male skaters were trying desperately to impress but only managing to just stay on their feet. There was a big element of ‘styling out’ going on as well as some intentional falling and grabbing. A wonderful time was had by all, including a few couples from Yorkshire, and we left a whole lot of love brewing in the air.
Wednesday 15 February: Social Media Week
As you’ll know, we at Yorkshire Tea are big social media fans. Well, you can’t really have a proper brew without a bit of conversation, can you? Our Facebook site has almost 80,000 fans, we’ve over 13,000 followers on Twitter and thousands regularly read our blog. So when we heard it was Social Media Week in London this week, and that our own social media guy Dom was talking there, we hot-footed it over to Bow Street. We set up camp outside The Design Council right opposite the Royal Opera House. Word of Little Urn’s arrival and the free Yorkshire Tea for Hard Water spread like wildfire via social media, so Heidi, Tom and Liz were kept busy whetting the whistles of tweeters and bloggers. Crissy Rock, who plays Janey York in the hit TV series ‘Benidorm’, rocked up too for a brew too. She absolutely loves Yorkshire Tea and it’s rather flattering to have yet another celebrity fan.
Friday 17 February: Nottingham Fine Food Markets
If you’re in the Nottingham area, there’s still time to catch Little Urn and the brew crew at the Fine Food Markets in the Old Market Square. We’ll be there till late afternoon and we’d love you to pop down for a chat. Come have a proper brew on us!
Sunday 19 February: sshhh!
To round off the tour, we’re calling in on a certain someone in Sheffield this Sunday. Can’t say anymore than that right now though – so keep in touch for more info!
