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 all things Christmas, and the stand out shot was this lovely snap featuring our limited edition winter teas, from The Old Cheese Shop! Let's find out more about this fab Cornish Coffee house...

you’ve got 50 words to describe your business… go!

We’re The Old Cheese Shop, (no we don’t sell cheese!) a dog friendly artisan coffee house located in the beautiful City of Truro in Cornwall. Myself, Katie and Kalvin run the cafe together. We source only the best local products, supporting as many small Cornish businesses as we can.

what made you decide to choose teapigs?

We opened in June 2017, and started with a small range of teapigs, as recommended by our coffee supplier Cornish Coffee. As well as stocking a variety of Cornish Tea we stock 22 teapigs teas, the range is still growing! We are well known locally for serving ‘the best’ Cornish Coffee, but we also have the best tea too! Keeping everyone happy!

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

We sell a huge amount of everyday brew, the peppermint varieties are also a huge hit with our customers, but the darjeeling earl grey is my fave! Kalvin is purely a coffee drinker!

how did the old cheese shop begin?

Our beautiful location (previously The Cheese Shop!) became available in April 2017... a whirlwind decision, and with a combination of business experience from Kalvin and food industry knowledge from myself we decided to go for it. We completely refurbished and designed the cafe within around 10 weeks and opened in June 2017 as The Old Cheese Shop. 

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

Our best seller has to be our breakfast deals.... local Cornish bakers Da Bara Bakery make the most amazing pastries, team one of those with a teapigs tea for just £4 is the bargain of the century. We usually sell out within the first couple of hours!
