Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006 with one mission – to get the nation drinking real tea again. 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.

Nick describes himself as a tea evangelist (although much nicer than those shouty ones on American TV). Louise, an experienced tea taster who has travelled the world tasting teas, is a self-confessed tea addict.

They make a big thing about using quality real tea. By quality real tea, they mean whole leaf tea, whole leaf herbs, whole berries, whole spices and whole flowers. Not the dusty stuff you’ll find in regular paper teabags.

They love their tea temple, but it's essentially the tea inside which makes all the difference. Louise has spent over 15 years sourcing and slurping tea – she makes sure that their teas are the very best quality you’ll find – promise! teapigs UK has racked up over 100 Great Taste Awards over the years – their mums are very proud.
