Norfolk Tea Stop will tour the county this summer, infusing the flavour of the 50s with modern tea blends.

The new business brings together Antony Lamb, who owns wedding and party hire company Vintage Partyware, and Mark Richmond, who owns Nelson and Norfolk Tea.

Mr Richmond, 48, of North Walsham, has 25 years experience in the tea industry and has spent time training at Harrods' and Fortnum and Mason's tea departments.

Mr Lamb, 52, from North Wootton, said: 'The Norfolk Tea Stop will serve traditional afternoon teas, cream teas, homemade cakes, coffee, and a selection of Mark's Nelson and Norfolk Tea served on my vintage china.

'There will also be milkshakes and iced teas for younger customers.

'We will be travelling across the country, making stops at village halls and high streets.'
