Oakland Care celebrate National Tea Day with Twinings

Residents from across Oakland Care’s ten care homes have been celebrating National Tea Day with Twinings.
With approximately 60 billion cups consumed a year, National Tea Day, which falls on the 21st April, brings people from across the country together to celebrate the nation’s favourite beverage.
To mark the occasion the leading care home provider linked up with the well-known tea company for a unique series of tea events.
After hearing more about the fascinating history of the company and their range of teas, residents were then given the opportunity to taste and rate a range of blends. This included drinks which contain vitamins, minerals, or natural botanical ingredients to support everyday wellbeing.
Across Oakland Care good nutrition and hydration is placed at the forefront of the provision of care delivered to residents. This is overseen by specialist hospitality and catering teams in each home that work hard to ensure that exceptional standards of service are maintained.
To accompany their teas, residents were also given the opportunity to get stuck into some baking, with a specially prepared Earl Great Tea bread recipe provided by Oakland Care’s Executive Chef. Speaking on the success of the event, Development Chef at Oakland Care, Annika James, said: “It was excellent to be able host a series of unique tea tasting events in collaboration with Twinings. The residents from across our care homes thoroughly enjoyed the tasting experience and were able to learn a great deal about the health benefits of tea. “A fundamental care need for our residents is ensuring that they consume enough fluids every day. Hydration is an important factor to consider particularly in our older age, with the way in which our body manages water changing. By offering a diverse range of teas we can not only help alleviate this challenge, but support the intake of vitamins, minerals, or natural botanical ingredients present in many teas which benefits everyday wellbeing as well as minimising other health risks.”
