All about Teaspoon tea company 

Hello, we're Lance and Pamela and we own of teaspoon tea company based in the lovely county of Lincolnshire.

We started teaspoon in February 2014, serving and selling only loose leaf tea from a modern teashop in the market town of Grantham. Our aim was to bring loose leaf tea to the forefront instead of coffee. We, of course, served the most amazing espresso coffee too but the tea took centre stage with big tea caddies holding the tea, tea timers and infuser teapots. Everybody loved it and we extended our range from 30 teas to 50! We both have a background in sales and retail, so we added teapots, mugs and some homewares to the shop and started a website and then starting going to local farmers markets and food fair.

Loose leaf tea is better for the environment than teabags and this is really important to us. We have 2 children who understand far better than us the need to look after the planet and the world around us. During Covid we worked really hard to find eco friendly solutions to all the tea products we sell. We sourced packaging that is recyclable and biodegradable along with labels that are recyclable. 

In the summer of 2023 we moved from our bricks and mortar store to just online and markets. It wasn't an easy decision by far but we know we need to put more time and effort in to our tea brand and making it more available to customers to enjoy at home.

We attend lots of local markets, that are listed on the website, and it's great to get out and meet our customers. The website is the place for all our tea range and a great place to get more information and maybe discover a new tea.
