We believe the key to our success is an honest backstory combined with a genuine ethos for putting our customers first, achieving 90% recommendation from our passionate and loyal customers, and 5-star reviews across Facebook, our website and Google.

We operate in the highest growing sectors of the £30 billion tea industry: green, blended and flavoured teas, which account for 29% of UK value sales (up from 24% in 2013) and strive to lead global product development.
