Raise a cup at a big birthday bash for a little monkey!

A LITTLE monkey celebrates a special birthday this weekend, and he’ll do it not by raising a glass of bubbly, but by choosing from one of 40 types of fresh teas, a selection of classy coffees or some lip-lickingly good hot chocolate...

How else would you expect the Tea Monkey store to celebrate its first year in business?

Tracey Bovingdon is the entrepreneur who came up with the idea, and in its first 12 months the Midsummer Place store has won the prestigious Best Tea in UK award courtesy of the National Beverage Association.

Building on the success here in Milton Keynes, a second TM store launched in Bath late last year and more are planned.

And with a new Cheeky Monkeys range of nibbles offering gluten and wheat free products, Tea Monkey promises that you ‘You can have our cake and eat it!’

Om Sunday, between 11.30am and 3.30pm, you are invited to join the celebrations in store.

The team will be dishing out free cupcakes for the first 100 customers (GO! is a cupcake expert and has yet to find any better) and samples galore to get your chops around.

Facepainting and a free raffle are bound to prove alluring too.

Go on, be a little monkey and help the birthday bash swing!
