FREE tea vouchers will be given away on Thursday when Exmouth is visited by a 100-year-old tea merchant - complete with authentic horse and carriage.
Ringtons doorstep delivery service is to celebrate its arrival in Devon by trotting around the town delivering tea and goodies on its horse and carriage - to commemorate its original delivery method back in 1907.
The delivery, accompanied by a 1930s fleur-de-leys van, will be handing out free Ringtons tea vouchers in and around the Strand.
Vouchers offer a free cuppa around the corner in the Strand Coffee House.
The chance to win free tea delivered to the door for a year is being offered by taking part in a competition.
The team will be in Exmouth from 10am until 4pm.
Exmouth mayor Joy Whipps will be meeting Ringtons divisional director Jon Malton and east Devon manager Charles Maynard for a spot of afternoon tea.
Ringtons' spokeswoman Vicki Johnson said east Devon was the first area in the South West to enjoy the door-to-door tea deliveries.
"We are delighted to be sharing this service with the people of Devon," she said.
