With nearly three decades of experience in the tea industry we felt it was time to share our experience and passion with the market by establishing our own brand – High Tea Co.
Tea should be all about taste and quality. Yes, tea is seen as a comforting drink and a social icebreaker but there is no reason why it shouldn’t taste great at the same time.
Like many foods and drinks, tea is produced in different ways with only around 25% of all production worldwide being harvested and produced in the traditional way; we refer to this method as orthodox production. It relies on the skills and traditions residing in the tea gardens to expertly produce beautiful teas which deliver fine tastes and a rather better tasting cup of tea.
But growing and production is only part of the story. The best tea leaves and infusions need a little more time to brew and deliver their delicious flavours.
So take your time, relax and enjoy a better cup of tea.
We have selected nine teas and infusions to start with that will give you just that; a delicate Darjeeling, a sparkling English Breakfast, a smooth and malty Assam, plus Earl Grey, green teas and a selection of fruit and herbal infusions.
Nestled on the edge of the Mendip Hills in leafy Somerset, High Tea Co operates from a previously working dairy farm in that has been converted into live/work units
We are fortunate enough to enjoy marvellous views from the windows of our office every day and being so close to nature brings the inspiration to look just that little bit harder to find the best possible products.
Despite our perhaps slightly remote office location we are in the buzzing east side Somerset close to Bath, Bristol, Wells, Frome, Babington and Bruton – all very popular destinations where people retreat for a better quality lifestyle.
We love Somerset, especially our local part of it with its rich diversity of culture and heritage. Why not spend a relaxing weekend in Somerset, stay in Bath or one of many lovely country pubs, B&B’s and hotels.
Walk on the Mendips or the famous Somerset Levels, visit the coast, the Royal Crescent in Bath, or take a drive to Wells, the smallest city in England and have a look at the breath-taking cathedral. There is also the trendy little town of Frome with its cobbled streets and regular Sunday market.
If you prefer a bigger challenge and more commerce, Bristol is not too far to go.
Whatever you do, we think you should take time for better tea and you will already feel relaxed and ready to enjoy life and its daily challenges.
