Teasup is a passionate independent tea company based in Putney, London, run by husband and wife team, Phil and Hanna. That’s us above, smiling at you!
The story of Teasup all began after many months of deliberation and after many cups of tea, when we decided to turn our life-long passion for tea into our livelihood and begin a family business. Phil left his job in the city so we could start full time on Teasup and our young kids got excited by the new adventure - we began our journey into all things tea!
We seek out top quality whole leaf tea from top tea gardens across the globe. Our tea is ethically sourced because we want the tea that we drink to be improving the lives of all those working in the tea industry; and we are committed to environmentally-friendly packaging because we want to contribute to improving the environment in which we live.
From working on deep-sea fishing boats and having a cup of tea, to surfing in winter British waters, to working at a busy desk in the office, to being with friends and family, to having some me-time, tea has always been an experience as well as taste. It’s also healthy for our body, with a breadth of provenance and geography to rival the finest of wines… and without the hangover!
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 all things tea with you! We hope you enjoy.
