This week celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal surprised shoppers at Westfield Stratford with a free cup of perfectly brewed Tea.
Unsuspecting shoppers were tempted to push a button for 'Free Tea' via a vending machine placed in the middle of the shopping centre. They were then delighted when the machine opened up to reveal Heston hiding inside, inviting them to sit down and enjoy the perfect tea experience – complete with waiter table service and entertainment from classical musicians.
The stunt was designed to promote the Sage by Heston Blumenthal Tea Maker, the world’s first fully automatic tea maker, which brews for exactly the right time and at precisely the right temperature.
