about us

Hi,

We’re the New Forest Tea Company made up of Ian, Kelly & Gracie (our Head of Tails & Barketing). We’ve been lucky enough to live in the New Forest for 10 years now and Gracie joined our team last year as the pawfect addition.

We love where we live and being fortunate enough to be surrounded by natural beauty means that our commitment to the environment is very close to our hearts. From the early days of planning New Forest Tea Company we were determined that our product would leave no trace and that's why we invested in the latest packaging from several innovative suppliers:

OUR WHOLESALE PROGRAM

For our food service program throughout the New Forest, we are offering a refill service for all our clients that reduces waste and we are striving to reduce the carbon footprint of food service outlets in the forest by offering them an alternative to other suppliers who will have longer transport routes.

OUR RETAIL TUBES

Each tube is made of recycled kraft tubing and once the outer label has been removed can be home composted or of course reused for more delicious tea

OUR TEA PYRAMIDS

Much has been made in recent times regarding the prevalence of plastic particles in high street/supermarket teabags and rightly so. For many years and still today, many companies continue to use teabag linings that are harmful to the environment and do not break down naturally. We are proud that our beautiful tea pyramids are not only packed with flavour but are 100% plastic-free, Bio-degradable and compostable. Each bag is made from plant based material (corn, sugar cane & abaca) and will break down naturally once disposed of.

OUR PACKAGING INNERS

When looking to maintain the quality and freshness of our teas we were determined to use a packaging inner that achieved both this and still left no trace. To achieve this our retail packaging inners are made from Natureflex, a groundbreaking cellulose-based packaging that breaks down naturally over a period of 3-6 months in a home composting environment

OUR REFILL PROGRAM

Once you have enjoyed your first experience of New Forest Tea Company Teas and want to reorder we can send you refill orders in our Natureflex inners to reduce packaging and waste at your end. All the teas can then be stored in your original canister or a suitable tea caddy
 
We are committed to leaving no trace and doing our bit to maintain areas of natural beauty such as the New Forest for future generations.
Happy tea drinking all!
Ian, Kelly & Gracie
