Carer Readers Celebrate Afternoon Tea Week 2022

Say Hello to the Winner of the Carer’s Afternoon Tea Week Competition…

…Hutton View Care Home in Brentwood

We are delighted to announce that Hutton View care home Brentwood is the winner of our Afternoon Tea Week competition which we launched to celebrate one of our finest and quintessentially great British traditions.

All that we asked was for care homes around the country to tell us about their tea week celebrations and send us some photographs of your events.

That was it!

We wanted to encourage care homes to tap into the British Tradition of afternoon tea and delicious treats to help bring a bit of elegance and pomp to an otherwise “unremarkable time of day”.

And you did us proud. We were truly overwhelmed the nominations we received, and sent hundreds we are delighted to say! (And it did take us some time to plough through them all)!

Once again we are sorry we could only pick one winner, it was the most difficult of choices the nominations were truly wonderful and inspirational, demonstrating the time, effort care and dedication care homes around the country took to make afternoon tea week that extra special occasion!

So very well done to you all, and very well done of course to Hutton View Care Home!


Enjoy Afternoon Tea with Cuppas That Show You Care

With lots of refreshing fruit and herbal blends as well as Original and decaf black tea, Tetley has a solution for everyone celebrating National Afternoon Tea Week!

Here at Tetley, we understand the challenge of keeping your residents hydrated and the important role a quality cuppa can play.

A significant 20% of care home residents are dehydrated which can lead to hospital admission. This is easily preventable by keeping hydrated.

Every cuppa counts

With our range, we have a tea that suits every one of your residents’ needs throughout the day. As well as choice, Tetley provides a familiar feeling of comfort for residents to help them feel more relaxed and settled. For the love of tea, for the love of Tetley.

Maximise the opportunities to maintain hydration levels by offering our wide range of flavoured tea alongside black tea. With tea counting towards the daily fluid intake and the recommended water intake being between 1.5L to 2L, our range will help you make sure your residents stay hydrated.

For the love of tea

Tetley is the nation’s favourite tea brand and No1 in the foodservice sector. We’ve been serving quality cuppas to the nation for the past 185 years.

Operating globally, we source, buy and blend the finest tea leaves, so you can promise residents a deliciously refreshing cuppa with every sip.

Whilst we are tea masters, we are also environmentally conscious and committed to operating our business in a way that supports the people and environment it touches. With every Tetley cuppa, you and your residents drink, you’re helping us in reaching our sustainability and environmental goals.

More than just tea

Designed with care professionals and caterers in mind, the Tetley Hydration Handbook and Hydration Help Sheet offer insight and advice to help keep residents hydrated in all care environments!

We have a range of free POS and specially designed care activity pack materials available to encourage extra drinking opportunities and have some fun at the same time.
