teapigs was set up in 2006 by Nick and Louise, self-professed tea nuts on a mission to get the nation drinking real tea. Louise has been a professional tea taster for over 10 years, and has travelled the world sourcing all sorts of teas. The result is a range of the very best quality teas you’ll find. teapigs only use whole leaf teas; whole berries; and whole herbs and flowers – not the dusty stuff you’ll find in regular tea bags! Our teas come in biodegradable tea “temples” – roomy mesh bags that gives the leaves lots of room to infuse.
