You may mock our weather, our teeth and our football team, but when it comes to tea, we Brits know how to do things properly. Teapigs were founded in 2006 by Nick and Louise, who met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it.
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 Teapigs’ tea temples have been handled gently and with love, to maintain every drop of that precious flavour.
Teapigs are also a pragmatic bunch, knowing full well that not everyone has the time to make tea the ‘proper' way, what with all that pot warming, deciding who will be mother, etc. And so the Teapigs tea temple was born – a roomy, biodegradable mesh bag, which offers all the space whole leaves need to infuse properly.
