Why Choose Us?
We know how important it is for any business, large or small to constantly stay a step ahead of their competition. Consumers today are better informed, have many alternatives and are more demanding than ever. We're confident our quality range of specialty tea products can truly make a difference for your customers.
Over the years, we've partnered with a variety of businesses. From new specialty tea rooms or coffee shops who are just starting out to established high end restaurants, luxury hotels, even health spas, golf clubs and gift shops. We're always happy to share our knowledge and experience of what works and more importantly what doesn't when it comes to serving or selling speciality teas to your customers.
We like to keep things really simple for our trade partners so we offer the following benefits:
- An extensive range of the Worlds finest Specialty teas:
We may specialise in exotic hand-tied teas but we also can provide the more classic varieties too. Our whole leaf Assam Breakfast tea for example is in a class of its own. Whether you need rare white & green teas, a trendy rooibos, caffeine free herbal & fruit infusions or a unique flavoured blend, we're sure to come up with the perfect menu to delight your customers. Our flowering and whole leaf teas are each available in a variety of small or large tins and catering pouches. We also now provide our loose leaf teas in large, biodegradable pyramid tea bags for added convenience.
- Handmade quality teaware
We're particularly known for our exclusive mouth blown glassware and colourful cast iron teapots. We also offer a wide selection of tea accessories like cups, mugs and beautiful custom made gift sets. All our teaware is made from quality materials and built to withstand the rigours of the catering industry.
- Convenient online ordering system.
Once your trade account is set up, you can order your products online through the wholesale section of our website whenever you wish. Order whatever you want, whenever you need it. We accept payments by Credit Card, Paypal or Bank Transfers. After the first two prepaid orders, we can even set you up a 30 day invoice account.
- No Minimums
To make your life easier, we no longer require a minimum trade order value or quantity. Just order what you need even if it's just a quick stock top up.
