For teaware and gift sets, our minimum quantity for a trade discount is generally 10 units. We also offer specific prices for >25, >50 and >100 units. For teas, most trade customers tend to purchase in kg pouch multiples although tea tins and smaller size pouches are available. The different packaging sizes and prices can be accessed on the product pages via the drop down options menus.

All trade 'teaware' prices are listed on the product pages 'exclusive' of UK VAT (20%). The VAT is then added at the checkout. If your business is VAT registered outside the UK, please ensure you add the VAT number to your profile when registering your company details. You subsequently won't be charged any UK VAT when you check out if the Items are shipped to a non UK address.

Please note that all our teas are zero rated for VAT.

Product Quality Guarantee:

We take great pride in the quality of our hand made products and offer a full 30 day money back guarantee.

Glass Teapots
Our popular glass teapots are hand blown by master glassmakers using the highest grade of borosilicate glass. The thick, durable glass we use means they are highly resistant to temperature fluctuations and also dishwasher safe. For trade customers, the teapots come packaged in white boxes with (or without if you prefer) our Exotic Teapot label. All our glass teapots are made to our own high quality specifications and in most cases our own exclusive designs. You can recognise a teapot, cup or mug is one of ours by the discrete Exotic Teapot logo on the base of the unit. We can also custom produce teaware for our customers with their own logo / branding. Please contact us for a personalised quote. Please note there is a minimum quantity required of 250 units and lead time is generally 8-10 weeks for custom production and UK/European delivery.


Flowering teas
Our flowering teas are made from very high quality green or white tea. We purchase our entire years supply of tea in bulk every April from the new Fujian Spring Crop. We are thus able to maintain our prices and more importantly the premium product quality throughout the year. For large quantity orders >10kgs, we do recommend our customers reserve their flowering tea with us as early as possible after April as bulk stock can become limited later in the year due to pre-orders. We can custom produce white and green flowering teas with personalised individual packaging and an array of flower or fruit flavours. The minimum quantity is 10kg per flowering tea. Lead time is 4-6 weeks for production and UK/European delivery. Please contact us for a personalised quote.



Given the premium nature of our teas and teaware, we do not currently offer free samples. If you wish to try any of our products, we suggest you purchase them first on our retail website. The trade discount price will then be applied with your first bulk order. If you then decide not to order, you can then take advantage of our 100% Money back guarantee and return the items to us in their original packaging. The return postage costs are non refundable as per our return policy.
