Welcome to our Polite Society.

Great whole leaf tea and herbal infusions.

Our tea journey began at family get togethers, where a pot of tea was always at the centre of the table. Now we source great tea from audited estates, our herbal infusions contain only natural ingredients, and our pyramid bags are 100% free of plastic (and they work!).

We are fiercely independent and care passionately about finding great tea and sharing it with you. We hope you will join us.

Berries Galore Pyramids

Bought this as a gift for a family member, and it went down perfectly. Great fruity flavour and nothing artificial. Highly recommended.

I am always looking for a good strong tea and this one hits the spot! - strong and malty - just how it should be.

Tea is special!

Tea plays an important role in most of our lives but we take it a bit for granted. We celebrate with it, and we commiserate with it. So next time you have a reason to reach for the tea, make sure you have something special in the house.  Join our Polite Society.

Biodegradable Pyramids. Conscience free, better tea!

Our Pyramid bags are 100% free of plastic and are completely biodegradable.  If possible, discard them in local authority food waste bins - that's how they break down quickest - but home compost is also fine, it just takes longer.



We love teaware almost as much as we love tea and might just have been accused more than once of having a few too many brewing devices and gadgets around the house.  We would love to share this passion with you and you can find a selection of items on our teaware page. Great for gifts, even better for you!
