We are a British business with a proud heritage, producing hand-blended teas that are packed with care right here in the UK.
Our story begins in 1851, during a golden age of tea trade when clipper ships would race across the oceans to bring the finest tea back to Britain. It was in this era that the clipper ship named "Flying Fish" was launched in East Boston, Massachusetts, to compete in the highly competitive tea races.
At the time, speed and quality were of the utmost importance. The ships that arrived first with the finest first-flush tea could earn back their building costs in a single voyage. The "tea races" were widely reported and closely followed, with the "Flying Fish" emerging as one of the finest clippers of its time. The ship brought only the best tea to discerning clients, earning it a reputation for speed and quality that was unmatched.
Today, we carry on this legacy by sourcing and hand-selecting only the finest teas for our discerning clients. We are committed to upholding the traditions of quality and speed that the original "Flying Fish" stood for, bringing you the best tea that British history has to offer. Our teas are a testament to the legacy of the tea clippers, a reminder of the rich history of tea trade and a celebration of the finest teas that Britain has to offer.
Whether you are a tea connoisseur or a casual sipper, we invite you to taste the difference that comes from our commitment to quality and speed.
It's hard to express in words the passion, research, and craft that goes into our delectable blends. We take great care in sourcing only the finest ingredients and blending them with precision to create something truly special.
To create our blends, we delved into the rich history of tea, the world's second most popular beverage after water. We studied historical naval documents, sampled teas from ancient times, and tirelessly tasted countless blends to create something truly unique.
The result of our efforts is a collection of blends that pay homage to the rich history of tea and offer a fresh, contemporary twist on traditional and historical blends.
We understand that tea is much more than just a drink, it is a time-honoured tradition that brings people together. That's why every cup of our tea should be a sensory journey, evoking memories, feelings and moments of peace. Whether enjoyed on a relaxing afternoon or shared with friends, our blends are sure to delight and satisfy even the most discerning tea lovers.
Whether you're a seasoned tea connoisseur or simply looking to try something new, our blends are the perfect choice for tea enthusiasts everywhere.
Our blends are not just teas, but a celebration of the art and craft of tea-making, a reflection of the rich history of tea trade and a tribute to the finest teas that Britain has to offer.
