*Fully Booked* Tea Time: I’d love a cuppa tea, wouldn’t you?

Monday 18 February 2019, 4pm - 5pm

TEC 0.05

Tea is the British and Irish national drink. Tea in Britain is drunk daily, often many cups a day, but from where did this love of tea come from? What about the concept of afternoon tea? Does it still exist in the UK in 2019?


Well, it certainly does at UEA during Do Something Different Festival! Come along for a campus cream tea! 

Sample a cup of tasty tea from a range of popular British flavours and treat yourself to a delicious scone with cream and jam. Join us for a chance to relax, chill out and meet people with similar tastes! Bring a sofa (optional).

At the same time find out how the British acquired the taste for tea over the centuries, and test your knowledge on our little tea quiz. The prize? Another cup of tea! You will also be shown two highly recommended places in Norwich where you can have a truly authentic cream tea experience.

Your Valentine’s Day didn’t include a cream tea? Surely it must be someone’s birthday soon…

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
