Some might have said it was a pot-ty idea.
But Julie and Rebecca English’s idea for a Sheffield tea range has bag-ged them a real winner, it seems.
But what makes a Steel City brew, one wonders? “Lots of love and care,” says Rebecca. “And trying to be inspired by your surroundings.”
The mixes are:
Kelham Island: a hearty and industrial tea, made with lapsang souchong leaves which are smoke-dried over pinewood fires to give a smoky flavour.
Cole’s Corner: romantic and fruity, including apple, elderberries, blackberries and strawberries to toast all the courting couples who met here.
Botanical Gardens: fresh and soothing, made with organic sencha green tea.
Seven Hills: refreshing and zesty like a view from Meersbrook Park. Contains liquorice and black pepper.
Peace Gardens: uses chamomile and lavender for a relaxing brew.
Full Monty: strong, northern and proud.
Winter Garden: warming and tropical, made with pomegranates and tropical fruits.
The pair also do a classic range and are working on a herbal line.
