If you're not aware, Sunday 2nd November 2014 is #HOTDRINKDAY with a global showdown between The Blog of Thog and Life, Explained as to which drink is better, tea or coffee. And I've been getting some contact from a variety of firms willing to weigh in on the debate.
For example, PGTips volunteered the following to my call for help:
@ravenswingthog There's no debate, Mike. Love, Monkey x

And Devonshire Tea, Steepster, Tea Totaller, and The Cup of Life all showing their support too.
I've also had a number of emails about the debate. Nestle got in touch saying:
As you will appreciate we have to remain impartial and obviously couldn't possibly take sides in your debate due to the fact we don't produce tea. #NESCAFÉ
The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co said that they'll be promoting the event, but didn't commit as to which side they'll be supporting (cough - tea guys, support tea!)
Also Has Bean Coffee wishes all the best for the debate - but not for me! :)
Seriously though, thanks to all the companies that have got in touch, regardless of what side you support. I'm keen to hear from other hot drink makers too - are we short sighted in saying that it's tea vs coffee? Where's the hot chocolate and marmite (think I need a comma in there somewhere) supporters? Whatever your preference, get voting and make sure to show your support, either on my blog (for the righteous tea lovers of the world) or Tim's blog (for the evil drink also known as coffee), on Sunday for your favourite drink - and tweet the debate up using #HOTDRINKDAY
