Tomorrow is the first day of Advent, the time of year in which we count down to the celebration of Christ's birth by gorging ourselves daily on chocolate. This year, however, I'm doing things a little differently.
Basically, an old friend of mine from Warwick University has been selling tea bag advent calendars in support of Coventry Cyrenians, the largest independent homeless charity in Coventry and Warwickshire. The idea is that instead of a piece of chocolate, every day you're given a different tea bag with a different kind of tea to try. Each portion of tea comes in its own little wrapper with notes about what kind of tea it is and where it came from.
If that's not enough to get you into the Christmas spirit, try this video from the aptly-titled Tea Fuelled arts collective in London:
