Our Story

“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy tea, and that’s kind of the same thing”.

Welcome, tea lover – you’re home. 

Hi! I’m Charlotte, the voice you’ve just been reading in your head the whole time.

My ‘teawakening’ happened in a Georgian eating house in Bath, UK – random I know. Known as the oldest house in the city, dating all the way back to 1482, it has since become world famous for its delicious teas and bread buns.

Having stuck to the hum drum of Earl Grey and Black Tea for too long, I dared to be bold and tried not one, not two but three teas in total.

Sipping my way through exotic blends of Assam, Rose Petal Tea and Russian Caravan, I knew I had just experienced a true ‘teawakening’.

Teawakening – The beaming, uncontrollable smile on your face and the ‘oohh, and ahh’ sounds you make when you discover a new tasty tea treasure.

2 years later, with my trusty flask at hand (or croquery if drinking out), I’ve embarked on a journey to discover the teas of the world, and occasionally craft my own signature blends along the way.

Because, let’s face it tea fixes everything.

It’s like the agony aunt of the beverages.

Some of the hardest conversations in the world have been overcome with a trusty cuppa in our hands. 

It’s replenishment for the mind, body and soul. 

That’s why I felt drawn to start this community, the pit-stop cafe for all your tea needs.
