About Us

We are dedicated to supplying the world’s greatest teas.

A little about us: we offer a comprehensive range of high-grade, loose-leaf teas from areas of the world famous for the quality of their teas. We specialise in teas from individual tea gardens or tea growing areas so that you can experience their diversity of character. We only sell loose leaf teas. We focus upon large leaf, traditional orthodox teas which give the best all-round, balanced flavour.

English Teas

Our English blends use teas that give them a classic character.

Since starting in 2000 we have built a loyal following amongst our customers and we are grateful for their support. Our teas are of assured quality and we are constantly receiving new stocks to ensure freshness. Our teas are imported via long established tea shippers able to air-freight new season teas as soon as they are available. We look out for good tea pickings and exciting new teas but we will cease stocking teas should an alternative tea garden offer better quality or value.

We are located at Wootton Wawen near Warwick, the historic county town of Warwickshire, England.

Our Website

Our website has a wealth of information to help you discover more about tea. Buying from us online is secure – we use WorldPay and PayPal. We aim to dispatch our teas within 24 hours of your order and delivery within the UK is free for orders over £30. We are committed to offering good value.

Sourcing our Teas

Many of our teas are sourced through members of the Ethical Tea Partnership. It is dedicated to an enlightened and fair approach to employment in tea gardens. Tea is picked over much of the year and the Partnership recognises the duty of tea gardens to care for the long-term needs of the workforce they employ. Monitoring of standards is independent of the industry, yet paid for by members. Focus is upon: employment and wage levels, education, maternity, health and safety and basic rights.
