Our teas come from reputable sources all over the world and we also create a number of blends in house in East Sussex. Quality, taste and value for money are the key criteria for us when it comes to selecting or creating our teas. 

We also stock a range of innovative and design led teaware to enhance your brewing experience and help make loose leaf tea drinking an easy and fun part of your every day.
