The firm has created the longer-than-normal slot to be played before feature films across the UK.

In A Tale of Two Continents, Monkey takes the audience on a whistlestop explanation of the history of tea.

In the spot, he plays a number of roles including a Chinese emperor, a tea clipper captain, and a jungle explorer.

The ad will play from 21 March before family films including The Spiderwick Chronicles, Horton Hears a Who, Gameplan and Hannah Montana.
