We’ve come a long way since we’ve stared.
Here at Easy Teasy, to say we love our tea is a bit of an understatement. We love tea and we love what we do. We love everything that comes with it. That’s not to say that it has been an easy journey in starting a tea company!
We initially started as a project during our time Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK – after all what better project to than something you enjoy? We thought we could actually have some fun doing this, and we did – we started our tea company with a small range of teas and a few pieces of tea ware, went on to win a few awards and came away smiling.
Everything was looking promising and it got us thinking – why don’t we do this full time? So it got to graduation, with Luci and myself taking on the task of becoming a proper, legitimate and fully fledged company. We worked hard, sourcing some of the best teas we could find and pretty quickly (not without some trial and error) became clued up on the ins and outs of the tea industry.
Things have changed massively from those very early days, increasing our initial range of 6 teas to 18 retail teas and over 150 varieties for wholesale. Now we stock teas sourced from around the world, and we’ve always struck to our guns in finding the best tea we can for our customers. A year and a half down the line and we have started a wholesale side to our business, so we could start bringing our tea to cafés and restaurants, and really show people how much better loose leaf tea can be.
We taste, source and pack every tea ourselves (all in a days work), and a year down the line we’re still focused on loose leaf (we’re just stubborn like that). It is our hope to one day turn our very North East company into a national brand, and see just how far we can take it.
