THE Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is warming up for a big season.

The first of the charity's newly designed coffee and tea mugs have just arrived in Queensland ahead of tea time next month.

May is Australia's Biggest Morning Tea time and there's never been a better excuse to grab yourself a new mug, switch the kettle on, tee up your friends, family and workmates and help tip the balance in the fight against cancer.

All funds raised from the major charity event support the organisation's vital work in cancer research, education programs and patient support services.

To take part, all you need to do is sign on to host an event during May and start planning.

Visit or call 1300 656 585 to find out more.

Last year, more than a million Australians shared a cuppa for the cause, raising close to $11 million - the best result yet.

In 2012, some of Australia's favourite foodies have come on board to share their healthy recipes, including celebrity chefs Stephanie Alexander, Poh Ling Yeow, Pete Evans, Manu Feildel, Andriano Zumo, Kylie Kwong and Queensland's own Dominique Rizzo.

Whether it's a simple morning tea with workmates, a sophisticated high tea with friends or a school bake sale, you'll be helping the one-in-two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85.

Thursday, May 24, is the official date of Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

However, morning teas can be held any time throughout May or early June.

So go on, switch the kettle on, make a cuppa and make a difference to those affected by cancer.
