The Tea Experience
Speciality Yorkshire tea company, The Tea Experience, has signed an exclusive deal to supply its premium quality range of loose teas, Flowering Tea Blooms and gift sets to Weeton’s, one of Yorkshire’s most stylish delis and farm shops based in Harrogate.
Doncaster based The Tea Experience is the brainchild of former Royal Mail human resources manager, Ann Davis, who lifted the lid on a new career by turning a hobby into a growing online tea business. Ann established the tea business originally selling traditional China teapots, after being inspired by a gift from her husband, Paul.
In just a few years, the business has extended its product range, offering a complete tea drinking experience from imported loose tea to tea ware and gifts and has now moved into the retail sector.
Established as Harrogate’s top food emporia and listed as one of the top 100 shops in the UK, Weeton’s has launched a range of loose teas from The Tea Experience, as well as its Flowering Tea blooms, a light and delicate green tea skilfully handmade by Chinese artisans, which offers a stunning cup of tea and a fantastic floral finale. Weeton’s has also listed a Flowering Tea Bloom gift set.
Ann Davis commented: “The Tea Experience was created to share and promote the quality of loose leaf teas and tea products at reasonable prices. We are delighted to be listed in Weeton’s, a farm shop which is dedicated to providing local producers with a market for their goods. We hope discerning Weeton’s customers will convert to the taste of our loose teas, which provide a superior taste experience. To the ‘baggies’, we say give us a chance, you can even create your own DIY teabags using our tea filters.”
Chris Love, buyer at Weeton’s, commented “At Weeton’s we pride ourselves on offering our customers the best quality local produce and are always looking for stand out products. We are delighted to have found The Tea Experience, a Yorkshire company passionate about loose teas. We have a great selection of teas and this new range will complement our offer and provide a new tea experience for our customers.”
The Tea Experience ensures consistency of taste and quality for its customers by importing high grade loose tea from the Far East and Europe from specialist tea importers and wholesalers. The husband and wife team have been lucky enough to travel and work in the Far East, mainly in China, over a number a years. Each trip provided the opportunity to try a variety of teas which often made them question the quality of what they were drinking at home.
They are now on a mission to encourage and convert more people to try loose teas versus tea bags for an enhanced taste experience.
