Hermione Pardoe samples a cup of tea from the Mini Tea machine shown in London. The old-style kettle and teapot, likely to be replaced in many offices by the machine, stand on the top. The Mini Tea, entirely British in design and manufacture, brews tea from the leaf and delivers it into a disposable cup. The machine also dispenses coffee and chocolate.
