Drink tea? Love tea? Have a slightly unnatural obsession with the sepia coloured brew of the gods? Then come along to sample Doctor Geof’s Fantastical Steampunk Tea Museum.
Linking with Longitude Punk’d at the Royal Observatory, Doctor Geof (one of the exhibiting artists) showcases weird and wonderful curios and memorabilia to bring you the history of tea you didn’t know existed!
