I started London Tea Club from a little basement flat in Notting Hill in 2013, sourcing everything from flavoured black teas to herbal infusions in an effort to introduce better tea to London. Each month, members (i.e. friends) received a bespoke selection of three teas in the mail - all wrapped up in a little drawstring bag and complete with disposable tea filters!
Over the next three years, I sourced over 150 teas, opened membership to international members and moved the club all over London from Notting Hill to Clerkenwell to Hackney. During this time I got to meet hundreds of members through frequent pop ups and events at our studio in Hackney - including tea tastings, tea ceremonies, dinners, sound baths and more.
In 2017, it was time to shake things up with an international move and a chance to start from scratch with all that I had learned.
Gathering all the member feedback from the first three years, it was apparent that people wanted more - more tea, more quality, more emphasis on the environment. So the tea club experience was redesigned to deliver just that - one large, beautiful glass vial of naturally or organically grown tea delivered each month, in environmentally friendly packaging. The teas are selected to complement the balance of energy in our bodies as we move through the seasons.
Now 500,000 cups of tea and four years later, London Tea Club's goal is still the same: to share great tea with as many people as possible!
I hope you'll join us,
