Embarking on an Extraordinary Journey with Taylors of Harrogate

Slurp and spit. Then repeat. I’m stood by a spittoon next to friends and polite company with an assembly line of teas: black, green, herbal and fruity and we’re quickly becoming experts in tea tasting.

The making of a creative journal & a fun GIVEAWAY
