So finally, the results are in!
We asked you to come up with a fitting name for our new loose leaf tea and the suggestions have been flooding in for the last week. Slurping on the new rooibos blend, we debated which entry best befitted both the tea and the 1930s art deco ambience at Metrodeco.
We even ordered the cuppa from our staff, trying out each name in turn, to see which one rolled most exquisitely off the tongue, making it a joy to say as well as to drink.
So after much mental torture and agonising deliberation, we have come to a decision.
The name we have chosen for our new rooibis, vanilla and rhubarb tea is…Terracotta Sunburst.
We felt that it really does embrace the essence of the tea while encapsulating a reference to a true Art Deco shape (‘sunburst’) used in many mirrors of the period.
So congratulations to Mike Lank for coming up with such a great name and thank you to all the other entrants.
Mike wins a free Afternoon Tea for Two (worth £28), a pouch of Terracotta Sunburst and – best of all, we think – a free pot of that blend any time he visits Metrodeco for the next year. And to show our appreciation to everyone who entered the competition, we would like to give you all a cup of the tea you nearly named. So please come in and enjoy a pot of Terracotta Sunburst on the house when you’ve got a moment to enjoy a tea that tastes – and sounds – exquisite.
