Lockdown 3.0 and Brexit
Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021, another Lockdown and Brexit! I just wanted to re-assure you that the online store is still very much open, the Tea Club is operating as normal, welcoming many new members over the last couple of months, and we'll keep the events page up to date. We have decided to keep the reduced Free UK Shipping threshold of £20 to make it easier for you to still get the tea you love!
Following Brexit, we are still exporting to Europe (and beyond), but please note that packages may be subject to additional customs and duty charges. The rules are super complicated and vary country to country, so at this time we cannot predict what those charges will be, nor are we liable for any additional charges. Please note that legally we are obliged to fill out customs declarations including the value of the parcel, and we cannot mark the items as a ‘gift’.
Stay safe, stay well and happy brewing,

Really well balanced cuppa, full of flavour without smacking you in the face. This is my go-to choice for drinking at any time of day.
This advent calendar turned our pre-Christmas time into a great tea tasting journey. The box is nice, and the tins are very pleasant to hold – so much cooler than a calendar with teabags! I also added two strainers to the order, which turned out to be a very smart choice, because it allowed brewing a cup of tea almost on the go, without preparing a whole pot. Besides, the tins are more capacious than they look! It is the end of January now and there is still plenty of tea left although we drink it every day.
This was the standout of the Earl Grey offerings for me. Fresh and not overly floral. Thank you!
This gaba sencha does help in combating low mood. The same is
true of gaba oolong. In both cases I wouldn't drink more than
a third of a cup because the gaba effect gets too strong.
I'm not an expert on green tea, but I would say that the gaba
sencha has a slight grainy flavour, whereas an ordinary sencha
is mellow (and very slightly sweeter). As for gaba oolong, I
usually mix it with PG tips and add milk and sugar!
I really love this tea, it has a pleasant rose scent but isn't overpowering or artificial. I will be buying it again
This is my favorite of Team Tea's Caffeine-Free teas. It's smooth, not overbearing, just the right amount of sweetness. I drink it throughout the day. It's perfect!
This is my favourite daily tea, I'm on my second order.
This Earl Grey is the best I have tasted. I had a sweet vanilla smell accompanied by a delicate flavour.
My new favorite. I tried the suggestion in the post to infuse it several times and each cup was as good as the first. Excellent tea! Love the fragrance and taste.
Absolutely great tea. Nice aroma and so tasty!
So great to be able to sample such a wide variety of amazing teas - reading the stories behind each of them really brings it to life!
Thank you for the fast delivery, great packaging, and beautiful presentation. I never tasted the Christmas Spiced Tea, but had a feeling I would not be disappointed. I love it! I am certainly going to order more before you run out!
