As many of you may already know, our co-founders Nick and Lou spent good years working at Tetley before they embarked on the teapigs adventure, and their mission to bring quality tea to UK tea lovers. They started the teapigs journey from scratch, dreaming up the blends, building the ikea shelving and operating from a tiny office in Ealing. They secured start up funding from what is now Tata Consumer Products (then Tata Global Beverages) they’ve supported us at arm’s length with the boring (but very important) legal stuff. And we have kept our focus on what matters to us - our products, people, sustainability, and community projects.
teapigs operates out of Pump Alley in Brentford. We’ve nurtured and grown the teapigs brand over the years, being true to our values of quality, sustainability, community… and a frankly obsessive love of amazing tea. All of which was cemented in 2019 when we were certified as a B Corporation - joining a community that considers people, environment and profit in equal measure when making business decisions.
If you would like to learn more about us and how we operate, feel free to pop us an email – email@example.com, or come down for a cuppa when we’re back in the office!
We work hard to develop & maintain a friendly company culture that supports people to be the best they can be through training & development, open feedback sessions, a big focus on health & well being in the work place & agile working options. We reward our people for what they bring to the business, we are a London living wage employer & continually review our culture & benefits package as we evolve & receive feedback. We have a strong, inclusive team spirit that we work hard to maintain.
Given that it makes up most of our name – it’s safe to say we love tea. We particularly love real tea. By real tea, we mean top quality tea leaves, whole herbs, whole berries, whole spices, whole flowers ...you get the picture.
It's all about the flavour. The tea in regular tea bags has been squashed, chopped and manhandled so, by the time it reaches your cup, almost all the flavour is lost. We don't think that's very nice.
We select top quality ingredients and keep them big and whole for BIG flavour... simple!
our tea temple
We think the teabag was an inspired idea – one of the greatest inventions before (and since) sliced bread. But you can’t fit whole leaf tea in regular paper teabags. And not everyone has the time to make loose tea the ‘proper' way, what with all the pot warming, deciding who will be mother etc.
And so the tea temple was born – a roomy, biodegradable mesh bag, which offers all the space whole leaves need to release their big, bold, beautiful flavour. Loose tea – without the fuss! (although we do have loose tea as well, if you like a bit of fuss).
