Brew Story

Spades are spades.
Good tea is really bloody good.

At Brew Tea Co, we're not lying when we say we love tea. We're also not being very specific.

We love tea: the ritual; tea: the stress remedy; that sense of satisfaction you get from a solid brew? That's why we're here.

We reckoned if you could get even a smidgen of that feeling from ground-up factory-floor mystery dust tea, we could take things to new heights with the right approach. And after some {and by some, we mean a lot} of teething, we think we've done it.

TO SWING IN THE TEA CIRCUS, YOU'VE GOT TO LEARN THE ROPES.

We began life in Liverpool. We stocked an amazing range of teas, but we were novices and no match for the High Street. We learned many lessons in our little shop. But through the highs and the lows, one thing was solid: we could make tea more amazing.

In January 2012, we started up a wholesale-only business to do just that.

LOOKING FOR SUCCESS? ASK 'WHY?' INCESSANTLY.

You might think that to start a tea business, you've got to know the tea business. In fact, the opposite got us to where we are today. All the tea bods told us that CTC was compulsory. Or that 2.5g bags were 'how it was'. Makers were going for quantity, not quality. We wanted things to be better, so we would always ask, '... but, why?'.

We worked our way through our list of questions and challenges, and eventually started to pull it all together. We said 'No!' to CTC, and 'Hell no.' to 2.5g bags. And we fought in English Breakfast's corner for three years because it's a British staple, and one that should be perfect.

We do it all ourselves. We taste each batch, craft the blends, and hand pack it back at HQ. We even make our own teabags.

We're here to prove that you can have your tea and drink it too.

Straight talking, no rubbish; just amazingly good tea, for folks with
amazingly good taste. 

We're Brew Tea Co. Welcome, and happy brewing.
