I’m rather excited at the prospect of seeing my family on my upcoming business trip to the UK.  As many of my friends and business colleagues have been asking me when I’ll be back, I thought I would write this post  to explain my whereabouts. 

  • Monday 18th OctoberNew Direction Partnership (NDP) is an East London based networking group which has a guest speaker every month to talk about a business related subject.  This month, MayKingTea will be their guest speaker sharing my experience of starting a business following redundancy.  If you’d like to come along to NDP then contact Karen Flint for more details.
  • Wednesday 20th October: Have you ever wondered what oolong tea is, why people love or hate green tea or the health properties behind tea?  “Around the World in Eight Tea Cups” is a two hour experience where we talk about the different categories of tea, how tea is processed, the history of tea, but more importantly we will have an opportunity to taste teas from all around the world.  This is a limited seating event so don’t forget to book your place.
  • Thursday 21st October: Athena, South Woodford group.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to the Athena International Conference held on Friday 8th October, but I’ll be catching up with Stella and others.   If you’d like to join us, email stella@theathenanetwork.com
  • Wednesday 27th October: The Ultimate Women’s Day Out.  Theo, founder of Kall Me Back has arranged an invitation only event for up to 100 business women who would like to partake in an indulgence evening as well as a networking opportunity with raffle prizes to be won.  There will be many guest speakers throughout the day (including MayKingTea) but it is an opportunity to mix business and pleasure before the festive season is upon us.  If you are interested in securing your place, then please contact admin@kallmeback.co.uk for more details.
  • I’m also in the planning stages of carrying out further tea-tasting events at the following venues:

    1. Espressimo Café originally started out as an independent coffee shop. Now serving tea from MayKingTea on a Sunday to accompany their wonderful breakfast menu, Nina and her team have a variety of teas from China, Sri Lanka and Italy to tickle your taste buds.
    2. Violet Cakes originally started out as a market stall selling cup cakes in the ever popular Broadway Market. Claire’s shop  on Wilton Way is proving popular with their Facebook Fans and the locals.  Violet Cakes has a large variety of teas from MayKingTea as well as some teas of her own, including mint from Claire’s own garden. 
    3. Back 2 Balance is a practice based in Walthamstow which specialises in running classes on Yoga, Pilates, Physiotherapy and other complimentary therapies.  Understanding the health benefits of tea, Karen is looking to running tea-tasting events with MayKingTea starting with Wednesday October 20th and plans to sell teas from MayKingTea in the near future.
