It is great to see new ideas amongst British tea retailers. Recently I was in contact with Kyle Whittington of Whittington’s Tea Emporium (WTE) and learnt about his company’s one-stop-shopping website for specialty teas from various tea brands/shops. If you are like me, this is a brilliant platform because I like to try teas from numerous companies but issues like shipping costs, etc prevent this. Currently WTE carries teas from six well-known and well-respected tea brands/shops: Postcard Teas, Canton Tea Co, Adagio Teas, Tea Studio, Tea Smile and Mirabilia. WTE carries various black, green, white, oolong, rooibos and tisane teas that are available in tea bags or loose leaf. They also have unique sampler packs that include a variety of teas from various brands/shops (see my next post for more about these packs). Shipping is free on all UK order over £50, and WTE ships world-wide.

WTE is an exciting tea retail venture, and I hope more teas and brands are added to the company’s portfolio. Partnering with WTE looks like an excellent strategy for brands/shops to grow their customer base, and it gives avid tea drinkers like myself an easy way to try many teas through one-stop-shopping.


About teaxplorer

I grew up in the Midwest of the US and was introduced to tea at a very young age - unsweetened iced tea, that is! It was not until my early 20s, when I was seeking a lighter alternative to coffee, that I took tea drinking to a new level. I still remember my mother suggesting that I try putting milk in a cup of black tea (something that actually sounded a bit repulsive at the time, but I gave it a go). I quickly became tired of supermarket tea and started ordering teas from shops and companies all over the US. Throughout my 20s and now into my early 30s, pursuits in higher education studies, work opportunities and marriage have given me opportunities to live in the UK, Canada and Germany and travel around the world, which has sparked an even greater interest in tea and the culture of tea. This blog is my outlet to discuss my love of tea and show off some of my photos. All images and opinions on this blog are my own, unless stated otherwise. I retain copyright on all photographs, but please do not hesitate to contact me at teaxplorer@gmail.com if you wish to reproduce any of my images. Likewise, if you would like me to review and photograph any teas for you, please get in touch. I would be happy to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and I hope you return many times! Happy drinking! Drew B (@teaxplorer)
