Each month, we give our wonderful stockists a different theme and ask them to send us photos of how they best show off our teas. We then pick who has tagged @teapigs and used #teapigsstockist with the best picture to find our stockist of the month!

Last month's theme was "Matcha May" and the guys at Sneakers ER showed exactly why matcha is becoming a must have on menus around the country. We asked them a few questions to find out a bit more about them, so grab a cuppa and have a read...


you've got 50 words to describe your business...go!

We produce some of the best sneaker care products available in the market today. We opened our flagship store in February 2019 in Glasgow which features a Cafe, Retail store, Gallery events space and a Sneaker Laundry which is the first of it’s kind in the UK and the biggest in the world

how did Sneakers ER begin? 

We were established in 2015 by sneaker enthusiasts Alan Lynn and Robert Stewart. Sneakers ER was founded to bring to the market products that were thought to be sorely needed. Sneaker cleaners, protectors, dyes, paints, glues and more to keep your sneakers in pristine condition or bring your battered grails back to life. We have spent the past few years perfecting the best materials and formulas for our products and whenever possible these are sourced locally and responsibly. As sneaker collectors ourselves, we strive to bring the best products to the market and only produce what we ourselves would use on our own sneakers.

what made you decide to choose teapigs?

We’ve always been fans of teapigs and find the range of tea to be brilliant. Also the brands personality, branding and packaging is spot on and fits with our store perfectly! When it comes to matcha we’re huge fans, and teapigs matcha is 100% natural organic green tea leaves and is the best that’s out there. 

if you could only have one teapigs tea for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Our customers love mao feng green tea and liquorice and peppermint, but when it comes to us, well you can’t beat a cup of everyday brew...a firm favourite all round!

if we were to come by to your cafe, what’s your best seller?

Our Pastrami, Emmental Cheese, Mustard, Slaw and Gherkin sandwich served on Biona organic rye bread is a huge hit with our customers and sells out on a daily basis. The thought of that sandwich as I write this is making me hungry!
