eteaket, more than just a cup of tea…
Our story started back in 2005 when Erica, decided that tea had an image problem and was due a makeover. In the UK coffee had become trendy and wine was no longer just red or white. However, despite a fascinating spectrum of tea from around the world, the UK tea was still a prisoner in its own tea bag. We always had a love for a good cuppa but it was discovering the astonishing world of loose leaf tea that really captured our imaginations, exciting us with its possibilities.
We decided that we really wanted to rekindle Britain’s love affair with proper leaf tea. So in December 2008 the doors of the eteaket Tea Room opened in Edinburgh along with our online store. Our journey has taken us on our own tea pilgrimage to China, India, Sri Lanka and Japan in search of the best leaves and we have been privileged enough to have met some of the best Tea Masters and teachers in the world along the way.
Since then eteaket has continued to grow and we are very proud of our truly amazing team!
On 9 November 2016 we opened our first Retail Tea Store on 111 Rose Street, Edinburgh. We’re excited to have a space to show off leaf tea to its full amazing potential. Immerse yourself in the world of proper tea and find all the tea gadgets you need to make your life that little bit better. From our new Bubble Cup, leaf tea flasks, grown up tippy cups to Blooming Marvellous tea candles we’ve got it covered. We even have cold brew teas on tap for you to sample before you buy. Sign up to our newsletter for details of tasting events and special offers.
We’re excited about the future; we love what we do and we hope you do too.
