Quality Loose Leaf Tea Suppliers - Buy Tea Online From Char Teas
Located in Winchester, Char opened its doors to tea lovers in August 2006.
We have had great fun and success during this period to the present and we are delighted to count many of our customers as friends. It is always a pleasure to see them.
Our mission is in two parts:
First is to bring to our friends and customers the very best teas from China, India, and around the World at the very best prices.
The second part of this mission is to make tea buying at Char a happy event - after all we want to see you again.
Our professional buyers work closely with the growers, and we import directly where we can. However, in the case of most perfumed teas there are specialist perfuming houses whom we appoint whether they be in England or on the Continent. In this way we ensure that we bring you the very best from the very best.
Our tasting and analysis of Assam and Darjeelings is undertaken for us by Phil Bayley to whom we are most grateful. Phil’s expertise is beyond question. He spent 32 years as a tea planter in Assam and has all the knowledge that only expertise combined with experience brings.
We welcome you to our website and hope that you will visit Char in Winchester at sometime in the near future. Polly, Steve, Sam, natalia and David are there ready to answer questions and guide you should you wish us to do so.
