Love Tea? Love teapigs!
Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born. They set out on a mission to bring REAL tea to the UK. With a range that boasts 14 whole leaf teas and 7 whole berry and flower herbal infusions - including soothing chamomile, festive spiced winter red, refreshing silver tips white tea - there is a blend to suit all tastes.
Unlike your average ‘cuppa’, teapigs teas are made using the very best whole leaf teas, herbs, berries and flowers - no dust in sight! The tea comes in biodegradable tea “temples” a roomy mesh bag that gives the leaves all the room they need to infuse fully, just like loose tea in a teapot. Handled with love and care from first pick to last pour, teapigs endeavour to deliver the best flavour in every cup of tea. With beautifully designed packaging and useful tips on how to get the most out of each infusion, these tea lovers are ones to listen to - championing no airs, no graces, just fine tea.
teapigs co-founder Louise, says of their REAL TEA mission, ‘Drinking good tea doesn’t have to be complicated and the quality shouldn’t be compromised for convenience. Our mission is simple – to show the UK how great tea should look and taste.’ Teapigs is adding two cheeky new blends to their already wonderfully extensive range this October, with the launch of the greatly anticipated: teapigs earl grey strong and teapigs darjeeling!
The combination of strong and delicate flavours make new teapigs earl grey strong stand out from the crowd. The perfect blend of assam, Rwandan, Ceylon and create a strong earl grey with a hint of zesty bergamot. teapigs darjeeling offers the perfect morning or afternoon refreshment with a clean, vibrant taste to awaken the senses, giving you a natural uplift to help you get through the day.
