Only 4% of Britons consume loose leaf tea. A whopping 96% consume tea from a teabag so we are in a minority but we are proud none the less to be staying plastic free!
Our mantra has always been “nothing added, nothing taken away” so when you savour one of our teas, you can rest assured that you are tasting only the freshest,natural leaves with no additives.
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
We hope to expand our audience in the UK,Europe and beyond.Its also important for us not just to sell tea but also educate and inform new customers on the different health benefits/properties of each tea.
There is so much to learn about tea, it is a religion in China!We also hope to work with events in the holistic/wellness space and stock our teas in cafes and health stores throughout the U.K.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
Over 90% of Britons consume black tea, it is the nation’s favourite tea and we are creatures of habit after all. It can be very hard to convince potential customers to try a flavour like Jasmine or Tangerine when their tea of choice has been a rich black all their life.
I think there is also a reluctance to try loose leaf tea as people think loose leaf is more time consuming to brew, when in fact it can be brewed in no time at all!
How do people get involved/buy into your vision?
We are hoping to find businesses within the hospitality sector and retail stores that may be interested in stocking or serving our teas to their customers.
We are also open to speaking to businesses in Ireland and Europe as we facilitate International Delivery.
