WHAT WE DO
Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire we source and supply the worlds best tea. We have an extensive range of tea which has been sought to appeal to customers who are as enthusiastic about tea as we are. We have a range of over 80 loose leaf tea blends which range from an english breakfast black tea all the way to a caramel rooibos tea. Although our products are available to purchase online, we also attend monthly farmer's markets and local events around Yorkshire, such as the Harrogate Flower Show. We are focused on providing a first class service and dispatching an array of quality teas to our customers, either at retail or wholesale, on a daily basis. Aside from loose leaf tea, we stock biodegradable pyramid tea bags which are plastic free and packed with our own loose leaf tea blends! If customers aren't sure which teas to choose, we have a tea subscription which is perfect for yourself or as a gift for a friend or loved one.
HISTORY OF TRUE TEA COMPANY
True Tea Company was founded in 2017 in the medieval city of York, North Yorkshire. We originally began as a tea subscription company, formally known as True Tea Club, which sent out different teas each month to subscribers across the globe. The original intention was to source and supply the worlds best tea and have a range so extensive that it would appeal to customers who are as enthusiastic about tea as we are. The tea subscription is sent out every month and you can receive a fantastic selection of teas directly to your door!
With the tea subscription in motion, we would pack teas in the front room of the founder's parents house - using of all things a very basic set of scales and a range of flavoursome teas. As things progressed and with tea caddies stacked high around the house, we outgrew and it was time to find an office! We found an office in Nether Poppleton, on the outskirts of York, North Yorkshire. This was ideal for packing our loose teas for online orders and having enough space to move into new areas. We became True Tea Co. in 2018 to be more than a subscription service and to provide tea for retail and wholesale. In November 2019, we opened our first retail store at 8 Commercial Street in city centre of Harrogate.

ORDERS FOR RETAIL AND TRADE READY FOR DISPATCH
We soon began attending monthly Farmer's Markets and local events with our loose teas, such as the Harrogate Monthly Market, Malton Food & Drink Festival, Harrogate Flower Show and the Great Yorkshire Show. As we grew, we were lucky enough to be stocked by Michelin Starred Restaurants, local cafe's, delis and even hotels - such as the Talbot Hotel in Malton, North Yorkshire.

PRODUCING OUR RANGE OF PLASTIC FREE TEA BAGS
OUTSIDE THE TRUE TEA OFFICE IN POPPLETON, YORK
Whilst we were predominately dealing with loose leaf tea, we noticed a number of tea companies were selling tea bags which contained plastic and lacked flavour. We decided to make a difference by creating a tea bag range which was completely biodegradable, free from plastic and packed with our very own loose tea blends! Our pyramid tea bags contain corn starch which means they can be enjoyed without the thought of plastic entering your cup!
