Welcome to our Webshop
We love tea. Our humble little webshop is our window to the world, so that you, the tea-loving client can get hold of our fine leaves quickly and easily, wherever you are in Europe.
Our personal approach to tea
Our teas and brewing kit are selected by me, William Cartwright-Hignett. I have been importing fine teas and advising hotels and restaurants on tea service since 2005. Today, Iford Manor Teas supplies many private clients, hotels, restaurants, delicatessens, pubs and village shops; both in retail bags and for catering use.
We love what we do here at Iford, in particular getting to know our clients personally, which has led us to produce a number of personal blends for both individual and corporate clients. Contact us for details if you like.
We think tea should be a pleasure from start to finish, and that starts right here, with the joy of selection! You'll find most of our teas on the website, but if there's something you really want to get hold of, we may be able to find it for you - so shoot us an email.
Just as with our wholesale clients, we prefer a bespoke approach to retail: so if you are unsure about what to buy, then feel no shame in picking up the phone or emailing us for some pointers - there's an answerphone if we're out delivering. We promise to reply in the same way - personal and tailored to you, just like your taste in tea.
