Brr..cold damp days and we have just the thing to warm you up...Gingerbread Rooibos....Lemon Mrytle Rooibos and Spicy Black Chai to just name a few.

You may have heard of Ian McMillan, The Bard of Barnsley. When not hosting Radio 3's 'The Verb' and guesting on T.V. shows he writes about Yorkshire and what it is to be from Yorkshire. 

Ian's made a discovery of a 15th Century Yorkshire manuscript the 'Boke of Yeeres'. ( it must be true, the story is in print ! ) The 'boke' sets out a Yorkshire seven year cycle, a bit like the Chinese set out their years.


Us Yorkshire folk tend not to share our traditions so the years of The Whippet (2012), Muffler (2015) and Pigeon ( last year) may have passed you by. NOT 2017 though, this year we MUST share, so get the kettle on, put your feet up and celebrate with us the year of

' A Nice Cup of Tea'.

Cheers everyone. 


The Tea Experience.  Every cup of tea should be a real experience - a pleasant one too. Our name is also our aim as we want to bring you quality leaf teas from around the world. From some familiar teas to the more rare or seldom seen to the stunning Flowering Tea Blooms we invite you to try our selection and start your own tea experience.

Our tea experience started in China where tea has been drunk for thousands of years. With a rich history of tea production and drinking it was a great and fitting place to begin The Tea Experience. Now with some great contacts and with the help of our independent tea tasting panel we are able to offer you teas from not just from China but also different parts of the world. All carefully chosen for their quality and taste.

We now invite you to come with us on our journey through the world of Tea. Travel with us across the roof of the world and try the little know teas from Nepal, Sikkim and beyond. Compare the teas from across India - the bold Assams, the more delicate yet highly prized Darjeelings and the lesser known Nilgiri teas. Teas from Ceylon, Taiwan and from across China. Rooibos from South African, herbal and floral infusions from all corners of the world.

Teas to try, to become your new favourites. Teas to share, to give as gifts. The choice is yours and we sincerely hope you will find your tea experience as exciting as we do.

So why not begin your own tea experience now.


Flowering Tea Blooms come from  China, are top grade blooms from an award winning producer which ensures that you get the benefit of both good tasting tea and a stunning display too. The flowering tea blooms are skillfully made with silver needle tea leaves and dried flowers. Each one is a minature bouquet which is handsewn and shaped into a ball or mushroom shape.  The tea is delicate and refreshing. The Gift Sets also make stunning and unusal presents for tea lovers for almost any occasion too.

Caffeine and Tannin Free products

For those who prefer tannin and/ or caffeine free drinks we have a  range of Herbal, wellness, fruit and also rooibos ( Redbush) teas. These range from gentlest camomile, refreshing mint to zingy Lemon Myrtle Rooibos and more.

Teaware and Tea Accessories

There is a selection of Yixing teaware as well as glass and cereamics together with accessories such as strainers.

We aim to give a broad selection of tea accessories so you can make your tea in the way you find the best for you be it in a teapot, with a make your own teabag, a teaball or infuser mug. There is something for everyone. 

Yixing Teapots high quality Yixing teapots (pronounced ee-shing) are made from the special Zisha and Zhu Ni clays found only in the area near Lake Tai Hu in China. The pots have been made in the area by crafts people since at least the 14th century and were the first teapots to be brought to the UK. Current teapots are based on these original teapots.

Yixing teapots are sought after by tea lovers, teapot collectors and by those looking for that special gift for a wedding, anniversary or birthday. Some of the pots are in a fantastic shape of an animal or plant, others are carved and have some painted decoration. Many of ,the shapes and carvings are lucky symbols, so ideal as a gift.

Those in the know believe that these teapots make the best cup of tea and we provide you with instructions on how to ‘cure’ your pot and make the perfect cup of tea. The tiny pots are perfect for the Gong Fu tea ceremony and are usually used with Oolong (Wuyi ) tea. There is a good selection of pots from the traditional tiny Gong Fu pots to full size family ones.

Darrell Milnes a talented designer and ceramist based in Stocksbridge, South Yorkshire has made some stunning pots and large bowls and we are delighted to add a small selection of them to our range from time to time.

Each year Darrell makes a small number of tea bowls especially for us and these are usually available between the end of October and Christmas. Each one is unique and they are much sought after so watch out for them.

John Webb is a well known and well respected designer and ceramist from Lostwithiel in Cornwall. He also makes stunning teapots and mugs and we proud to include them in our range.

Both Darrell and John really know how to make a well balanced teapot with lids that fit properly and spouts that pour like a dream. They both love drinking tea and it really shows in their work. No dribbley teapots and good sized tea bowls from these chaps.
