Our family run business has been shining the light on the amazing diversity of tea since 1982 when we opened our flagship store in Covent Garden.
We source the highest quality loose leaf tea and simply aim to encourage others to explore the true pleasure of this wonderful infusion.
All our team are enthusiastic tea drinkers with specialist knowledge to assist you in selection from our extensive range to suit your customers and you. As well as selection, advice and menu preparation, we provide product information, training and brewing notes for your staff to ensure the best experience for your clientele.
From independent delis, cafes, restaurants and hotels, we provide a bespoke service to ensure that you can offer the perfect, pleasurable, tea experience. This includes…
Wholesale Packs of Loose Leaf - 1KG or 500g. Ideal for serving in restaurants, hotels and specialist cafes. Trade Loose Leaf 'Core' Range
Temple Tea Bags - Carefully chosen from our core range – the shape of temple bags allow us to keep the integrity of the whole leaf in a pyramid shaped bag. Perfect for room service, events and specialist dining. Trade Temple Tea Bag Range
Trade discounts on Retail Packs - Ideal for delis and independent retailers, these can also be used in food service for menu expansion and for seasonal specials.
All the above include product information, training and brewing notes
We continue to inspire tea drinking trends by ensuring that we source teas of the highest quality, ethically and with integrity.
It simply comes down to a huge difference in taste. Drinkers immediately appreciate the breadth and depth of flavour that loose leaf tea provides. They realise that the same quality from the infused full leaf simply cannot be achieved in the manufacture process of regular tea bags. Every care is taken in the preparation, packaging and storing of our teas to ensure the independent minded tea drinker gets their perfect cup.
As well as the firmly established favourites through our range of Black, Red, Green, White, Oolong and Pu-Erh teas, we have a fine selection of specialities and offer many Herbal and Fruit infusions and also Rooibos (Redbush) and Mate. If you are looking for something truly different, contact us about bespoke blends. Our teas are available to trade customers in unbranded packaging.
Increasingly, consumers are aware that tea is as exciting in its variety as wine - provenance, growing conditions, variety and production methods all playing very significant roles. And the health benefits of tea are gaining ever wider recognition.
Our “teaphernalia” - Whether you need the perfect strainer, infuser, caddy or teapot, our beautiful range of accessories make brewing your favourite tea a real pleasure. We also have a wide range of cups, and tea sets to suit most styles including modern, traditional and exotic. And, if we don’t have it, we will help you hunt it down!
Our focus and flexibility allows us to respond quickly to your special requests. We will always reply within 24 hours Monday to Friday – just ask. We offer a quick turnaround with orders. Most of our teas are in stock and we will deliver within 3 working days of your order being placed.
