The story of Teasup begins in a family home in London in 2019, after many months of deliberation and after many cups of tea, when Hanna and Phil decided to turn their lifelong passion for tea into their livelihood.
“For us tea is an experience as well as a taste. It's always there in the background of everybody’s lives; having a cup of tea whether you are laughing, crying, up late at night or early in the morning, with friends and family, and of course the blissful but elusive me-time.
We really love tea - it’s healthy for our body, packed full of antioxidants, with a breadth of provenance and geography to rival the finest wines… and without the hangover!
At Teasup we seek out excellent quality whole leaf tea from top tea gardens across the globe. We have a focus on ethical sourcing because we want the tea that we drink to be improving the lives of all those working in the tea industry. We are committed to sustainably focused packaging because we want to contribute to improving the environment in which we live. Whether it’s a Teasup Breakfast Blend in the morning, a White Tea and Mango in the afternoon, or a caffeine-free Good-Night Infusion in the evening, there is rarely a moment when we’re not looking forward to the next cup of tea, and we want to share our tea with you!”
