About Teapigs logo



The Teapigs Story.

Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006.

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 aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.

'We believe in something pure and simple - no airs. no graces. just fine tea.'

Whole Leaf Tea

Quality Tea

At teapigs, we make a big thing about using quality real tea. By quality real tea, we mean whole leaf tea, whole leaf herbs and whole flowers.

It's all about the flavour.  The tea in regular tea bags has been squashed, chopped and manhandled so, by the time it reaches your cup, almost all the flavour is lost. We don't think that's very nice.  The whole leaves, herbs and flowers in our tea temples have been handled gently and with love, to maintain every drop of that precious flavour

Our Tea Temple's

The teabag is an inspired idea; convenient, clean, simple to use. But we know that whole leaf tea just does not work in regular paper teabags and not everyone has the time to make tea the 'proper' way.

At Syon our tea is as important as our coffee choice.

We love the taste of teapigs teas, such great quality and flavour. So, when we decided that Teapigs would be our choice of supplier, we were even more pleased to discover we are supporting a fellow local business. Teapigs are based in Brentford and offer exceptional quality and taste.   

Come and try the 15 different flavours of tea we have on our shelves and if you love it as much as we love it, why not buy a packet and take it home with you.

The tea temple is a roomy, biodegradable mesh bag, which offers all the space whole leaves need to infuse properly.
