Welcome to our new website
Some of our regular 'infusiasts' asked us if we could make it possible for them to buy online - quicker and easier when email or telephone wasn't an option. And here we are - our humble little webshop - I'm sure it will evolve over time, but we're proud of it anyway.
Our personal approach to tea
Our tea is selected by me, William Cartwright-Hignett. I have been importing fine teas since 2005. Today, with the help of my colleague Julie, we supply not only our private clients, but also hotels, restaurants, pubs, village shops, both in bags and for catering use. We love what we do, in particular in getting to know our clients personally - this has led us to produce a number of very personal blends.
We think tea should be a pleasure from start to finish, and that starts right here, with the joy of selection! We take a personal approach to online retail, and whilst this webshop is an efficient ordering means, we are always happy for you to email us your order, send it to us by mail with a cheque, or just call us up (there's an answerphone when we're not in). And we promise to reply in the same way - personal and tailored to you, just like your taste in tea.

I wanted to find a small business with a very careful approach to sourcing but a pragmatic, experienced and personal approach to business; the sort of people that say "yes, let's give it a go", rather than finding the problems in a project....
