Each month, we run a competition with our wonderful stockists, to find our stockist of the month! This month, their challenge was to show their love for our new feel-good teas. Our winner was the awesome The Tenth Hole Tearooms in Southsea, and we wanted to find out a little bit more about them...

How long have you been a teapigs stockist and what made you choose our tea?

We've been stocking teapigs for a couple of years now; we moved over to you because we loved the idea of being able to provide a really good quality tea but still be able to use tea bags.

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

Up Beet is literally the yummiest tea I've ever tasted. Who would've thought Beetroot would work in a tea?!

What made you want to set up shop?

My husband Bill and I were looking to escape the London rat race, and with my family already running a restaurant in Portsmouth, we decided to up sticks and relocate back to our home town to "live the dream".


Have there been any hiccups along the way?

Yes! Living the dream hasn't always been what its cracked up to be! Living together and working together is hard, but we wouldn't change it for the world. We work by the sea, and on a golf course, and that view beats staring at a computer screen every day that's for sure.

Have you ever had any exciting celeb customers?

The Olympic torch came our way in 2012 if that counts!? Other than that....I think we had some X factor auditionees in once...other than that no!

Apart from tea (obviously!) what is your best seller?

We're famous for our cakes - we sell a vast and varied selection all prepared in house by our incredible team of bakers :)

What’s the craziest customer request you’ve ever had?

2 full englishes on one plate....he was a hungry boy!
