MG Car Club in Abingdon has brought out its very own breakfast blend tea in time for Christmas, sporting an image of the town’s old MG factory where generations of Oxfordshire families once worked. General manager Adam Sloman said: “We want to offer MG fans something different through our merchandise range and we thought what better than a proper cuppa, blended just up the road from Abingdon. “The tea tastes fantastic. It’s something special and unique, it’s fun and will make a brilliant gift too.”
