Founded by: Phil & Aideen
Phil and Aideen set up Brew Tea Co in 2012 with no budget, one stockist, and one big idea: To make tea awesome. That meant sticking to the classics, using whole rolled leaves and getting our hands dirty. Five years later, with sixteen more people on board and a new HQ in Manchester, plenty has changed, but the mission remains the same.
When sourcing tea it’s always been taste first, and that will never change. However as we’ve grown we’re now able to control our sourcing much more closely, buying directly from farms with the help of experienced brokers. As part of this we have become members of Rainforest Alliance and Ethical Tea Partnership and now require our tea partners to do so also.
What's more, In July, Brew Tea Company became the 146th certified B Corporation in the UK and only the 2nd in Manchester. Do Honest Business was one of our founding values and we believe that this certification helps us stay on the right path as we grow.
