We have a big focus on what we can do to help you deliver the best possible tea experience for your business, from Cold Brews, Iced Teas and food pairings – but we understand that there is more to it than just tea sometimes. Beyond Tea is a small curated collection of our favourite independent businesses to support your drinking experience.

If you’re looking for family run, high quality, truly authentic drinking experience, the team at Pamban have got you covered. With a big presence in the speciality coffee scene we met Aruna & Mayhul at our first ever London Coffee Festival and we’ve been touring together ever since!
It’s difficult to stand out in a category with the precision, truly specialist and saturated nature as coffee, but the team at Hundred House, figure-headed by Annabelle & Matt, have created a brand that we genuinely aspire to. The team they have cultivated, the coffee they create and the projects they inspire have a real standout effect; combine this with the fact that they are ALL lovely people, you cannot go wrong in choosing them as your coffee provide of choice.
Located just down the road from us in Frome, we actually met Casey & Fi at the London Coffee Festival. Womxn-led, GWGC source and roast crazy delicious coffee, with a focus on sourcing from change-making womxn and unquestionably immense quality. Stand out, shop local, fight for change and Fuck the Patriarchy.
When we first started out, in the midst of lockdowns, we had a small online presence of which Joe at Old Forge was a follower. Through numerous exchanges Joe would later become a beacon for guidance and support, they have helped us to shape what success looks like for ourselves. We love all the work that Joe produces, with truly innovative designs, glazes and unbelievably precise attention to detail – all products are handmade and any business would be lucky to have this work as part of their drinking experience.
Another local maker, this time based in Frome, we met Fi on one of our first visits to the sleepy Somerset town. Their studio welcomes you in off of Catherine Hill with promises of warmth, immersive engagement and a friendly smile. Fi dances the line between pottery in art and as functional pieces of stoneware, each piece is truly unique and a genuine pleasure to sup from.
Based just up the road from us in Bath, Henny & Joe’s create beautifully crafted Chai Infusions & Concentrates for use at home and in the cafe environment. Each blend is naturally caffeine free, entirely vegan friendly and packed full of flavour.

Dairy and M!lk
Family run and with a true focus on regenerative farming and animal welfare here in the UK; The Towers Team bring an incredible passion to the world of dairy that delivers incredible consistency, quality and service.
When asked, we always try our best to recommend that the M!lk alternative of choice be an Oat Milk. Oats are a pre-existing crop and when compared to other milk sources, are significantly less water-intensive; combined with the fact that oat cultivation encourages great biodiversity – oat milk makes for a far more sustainable alternative to Dairy and other milk alternatives. We met the Unordinary Team at the Bristol Coffee Festival and can’t think of a better partner for your M!lk Alternatives.
