Woman ditches her man to make a cup of tea in new Tetley ad

Tea brand Tetley has launched a female-targeted campaign in which a woman leaves her husband to make a cup of tea.

The campaign for the TATA Global Beverages brand – the first for Clemenger BBDO Melbourne – aims to break away from a ‘world of cosy bliss and escapism’ and pay homage to women.

Anthony Keogh, ECD of Clems Melbourne said: “It seemed like nobody was really acknowledging tea for what it is. It’s not a big fix or a magical escape. It simply gives you a few minutes of courage, before you get back out there.”

While the first ad, entitled ‘Leaving’ focuses on Tetley’s flagship black tea, following ads will showcase chai latte and  fruit and herbal ranges.

The campaign will be supported by print.
