Two Shell garages in Hampshire are part of a trial for Costa Coffee machines to serve tea to customers on the go.

Costa Coffee machines are common place in petrol stations and convince stores across the UK.

But customers in Eastleigh and Winchester will be the first to be served tea from these machines. 

The international coffee brand is trialling the machines at 10 sites in the UK, including Shell Little Waitrose service station on Passfield Avenue in Eastleigh and Shell Sutton Scotney North on the A34 in Winchester.

Tea drinkers can also claim a bean on their Costa loyalty cards by scanning the on screen QR code when they buy a hot drink.

Sean Stroud, senior account manager at Costa Coffee, has said that tea is a 'beloved' hot drink in the UK and that Costa wanted to bring the 'on-the-move experience' to tea loving customers.
