Wholesale Tea that is blended and packed in the UK.
KEEPING tea pure and simple – A Brief History of The Wee Tea Company
In 2012 Derek Walker and Jamie Russell identified a need for a quality wholesale tea company based in the UK. The coffee industry had boomed and was at saturation, the quality of coffee available was exceptional, but the tea offering was at best poor.
“Embarrassed café and restaurant owners were crying out for a tea that could match their coffee offering, a tea they could be proud to serve.”
Many of the teas available in the market place were cheap, poor quality and although easy to pick up from a local supermarket, the teas back then were not good enough to be served as a premium tea offering, most were dust.
Jamie and Derek set about finding the most popular teas in collaboration with tea sommeliers up and down the country. Originally The Wee Tea Company had just six blends, Breakfast tea being the most popular. Back in 2012 the average tea drinker hadn’t grown a taste for the likes of Gunpowder Green tea or Rhubarb Rooibos, both of which are now almost as popular as the countries favourite breakfast tea.
The tea duo researched traditional Scottish Breakfast Tea blends, the breakfast tea they serve today is the same blend that was conjured up back in 2012, it is strong, rich and bold, none of that dishwater tasteless tea that turns customers away. The business was started in a home kitchen, nowadays The Wee Tea Company teas are served in thousands of kitchens across the country, all the teas, fruit and herbal blends are still packed by hand and the wholesale teas are dispatched from their tea headquarters in Dunfermline, Scotland.
Nowadays the Wee Tea Company hold stock of many ingredients, which grants them the ability to create hundreds of blends. The Wee Tea Company doesn’t believe that servers should have a small ‘lip service’ menu, oh no, they recommend a minimum of 9 teas, this shows your customers that you know your teas, that you take your tea offering seriously and helps to cater for the growing population of discerning tea drinkers.
Caffeine free options are essential, exciting alternative blends bring customers back to try more. Different teas sell at different times of the year. A Wee Tea Company Starter Kit can get you off to the best start, this includes the nine most popular teas with Wee Tea Company branded storage tea caddies and its available for loose tea and biodegradable tea bags.
If you are looking for a wholesale tea company then you have come to the right place.
