Primary children make time for tea at Howards in Stokesley
Customers visiting Howards restaurant in Stokesley, North Yorkshire, will be able to enjoy Mad Hatter Tea from now on. The restaurant is the first Teesside retailer to sell the unique tea brand.
And to mark the fact, pupils from Stokesley Primary School were invited along to the award-winning restaurant to enjoy a tea party laid on by Graham Howard, restaurant owner, and Michael Harrison from Mad Hatter Tea. The news was also trumpeted in North East Life Magazine.
Graham Howard said "As a local bistro we are keen to support our local community and use locally-sourced ingredients and brands wherever we can. The Mad Hatter Tea Company has a similar ethos to Howards and we thought that the start of Spring would be a good time to celebrate our partnership by entertaining some of the local school children."
For the past two years Howards has won the 'Breakfast of the Year' honour at the Flavours of Herriot Country Awards, formerly the Flavours of Hambleton' Awards. The restaurant serves food througout the day and is one of the only restaurants in the Tees Valley and North Yorkshire area to be included in the Harden's Restaurant Guide for the last three years. The Guide lists the best places to eat.
Mad Hatter Tea's Michael Harrison said "We are really thrilled to be teaming up with Howards, which is very well frequented restaurant and respected locally. I am sure customers will appreciate the special qualities of Mad Hatter Tea which is a unique blend made from specially selected African and Indian teas."
