I'm Emily and welcome to TEA BY THE SEA. As a child my love for tea started early! I would often be seen clutching a bottle of tea as a baby and then later as a young girl walking to school with a mug in my hand (Despite the funny looks, this habit still continues to this day!) However, my story doesn't start with a good cup of tea, instead it starts with a really bad one...
Having just purchased and consumed a really bad cup of tea, I bought another one. Only this time instead of adding hot water I ripped open the bag to see exactly what I was drinking. To my dismay I couldn't actually see what was in the bag. All I could see was dust and smell something that resembled a floral scent. When I made my original purchase I thought I was going to be tasting something 'natural' that was going to taste good and do my body good too. For years I had been blending teas for myself at home and out of no where I said "I can do better than this". That was it. I went home and started blending and researching continuously. I came to realise that as a nation of tea drinkers we were becoming short changed when it came to our favourite drink and not only that but the planet too.
96% of tea bags contain plastic and most herbal teas are ground down so much we are unable to see or taste what we are consuming. It was a priority that our teas were to be 100% natural, contain whole flower and whole fruit, be Fairtrade and that all packaging to be eco friendly. Six months later TEA BY THE SEA was born and I am now so pleased to be able to offer a selection of teas that meet our brief. You will only find nature in our compostable teabags, you will only enjoy nature in our blends and you only have nature to thank for the taste.
