in the beginning…

Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006 with one mission – to get the nation drinking real tea again. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply weren’t getting the attention they deserve.


Back then, things looked a little different. Facebook didn’t exist, #tags weren’t a thing, people still used paper maps, great things were happening in coffee and not-so-great things were happening in tea. Even though we are a nation of tea drinkers, quality tea was hard to come by unless you went somewhere fancy. We wanted to change all that by making great quality tea accessible… and a bit more fun! And so teapigs was born.

Nick describes himself as a tea evangelist (although much nicer than those shouty ones on American TV). Louise, an experienced tea taster who has travelled the world tasting teas, is a self-confessed tea addict (not seeking rehab).

our beliefs

We know that doing small things better can make a big difference. That first cuppa in the morning? Game changer!


That’s why we make a big thing about real, quality tea, sourced sustainably, in packaging that’s better for the environment. We give back to the communities that bring us our tea. We do our best to take care of the people that make it all happen. And try not to take ourselves too seriously along the way. No airs. No graces. Just fine tea.

We only source the best quality tea leaves, berries, herbs and spices. 100% natural with no artificial flavorings. 

We source from sustainable estates and we were the 1st tea company to be certified Plastic-Free.

We give back to the communities that bring us our tea and our local community in Brentford. We have our own ethical scheme that gives back to vulnerable young people in Gisenyi, Rwanda.

our people

We work hard to develop & maintain a friendly company culture that supports people to be the best they can be through training & development, open feedback sessions, a big focus on health & wellbeing in the work place & agile working options. We reward our people for what they bring to the business & continually review our culture & benefits package as we evolve & receive feedback. We have a strong, inclusive team spirit that we work hard to maintain.

our tea

We make a big thing using quality, real tea. By real tea, we mean BIG, whole tea leaves, whole herbs, whole berries, whole spices, whole flowers get the picture. It's all about the flavor. The tea in regular tea bags has been squashed, chopped and manhandled so, by the time it reaches your cup, almost all the flavor is lost. We don't think that's very nice.


We select top quality ingredients and keep them big and whole for BIG flavor... simple!

our tea temple

We think the teabag was an inspired idea – one of the greatest inventions before (and since) sliced bread. But you can’t fit whole leaf tea in regular paper teabags. And not everyone has the time to make loose tea the ‘proper' way, what with all the pot warming, deciding who will be mother etc.


And so the tea temple was born – a roomy, biodegradable mesh bag, which offers all the space whole leaves need to release their big, bold, beautiful flavor. Loose tea – without the fuss! (although we do have loose tea as well, if you like a bit of fuss)

teapigs today

You’ll find teapigs in lovely cafes and delis, food halls and grocers, hotels and restaurants up and down the country… and in over 40 countries too!
