BRAND BUILDING THROUGH TEA
Creating bespoke teas & herbal blends
From breakfast brews through to fruity infusions, I can help you create the highest quality tea blends with vibrant aromas and delicious flavours.
There are thousands of different varieties of tea. Each has its own distinctive flavour and character. The quality is determined by the geology, geography and climate in which the tea is grown.
The art of tea blending is being able to recognise and work with these differences to create the right mix of ingredients.
As an expert tea blender, I’ll produce a unique tea that reflects your business brand and personality – and tastes great!

ADDING PUNCH TO YOUR BRAND
In bars and restaurants, tea cocktails are fast gaining popularity – adding a unique and unusual product to your drinks menu.
As a master tea blender, I can create stunning cocktails with hand-picked ingredients and on-trend flavours, using tea as an infuser, mixer or a simple tea spirit.
Working closely with you at every stage, I’ll find the right mix of ingredients to produce the perfect tipple.
“Tea blending is like an orchestral movement, with all the teas (as musicians) working in harmony to bring out the very best in each constituent part.”
“The mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose.”
The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft
“The music of tea is the melody that soothes me.”
“Come along inside... We'll see if tea and buns can make the world a better place.”
The Wind in the Willows
“The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort, and refinement.”
The Little Tea Book
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
The Portrait of a Lady
“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.”
“But, indeed, I would rather have nothing but tea.”
“Wouldn’t it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn’t have tea?”
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
“If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.”
William E. Gladstone
British Prime Minister
