Jacuzzi UK were approached by the producers of Channel 4’s Heston’s Fantastical Food to provide a circular hot tub to create the ‘world’s largest cup of tea’ in which celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal could conduct a ‘dunking’ experiment. Jacuzzi Uk were able to offer a round J210 hot tub courtesy of Euphoria Lifestyle who already had a working model on display in their showroom at Woodcote Green Garden Centre in Wallington, Surrey. As camera crews descended upon the showroom for a day of filming and experimenting at Euphoria Lifestyle, Mike Robinson, Managing Director said: “We had a fantastic day with Heston and his team filming this rather crazy yet somehow still very scientific experiment of turning one of our Jacuzzi hot tubs into a giant cup of tea and dunking giant chocolate biscuits (1/2 metre diameter) into the concoction! “It took 160 tea bags and four litres of milk to achieve the desired effect, a few large dashes of ‘Jacuzzi No Foam’ and we had to perform two complete water changes afterwards! I think we can safely say that’s was a world’s first using a Jacuzzi hot tub in this way!” If you missed the show you can view it here www.channel4.com/programmes/ hestons-fantastical-food/4od until 20th December 2012.
