I love the everyday occasion of making a loose leaf cup of tea. With good quality tea the flavour can’t be beaten. And I love that freshly ground coffee smell filling my kitchen and the relaxing feeling as I enjoy it. Whether on my own, at work or enjoying the company of family and friends every cup tastes special. My little everyday luxury.
After working for a big firm in London I moved to my husband John’s home town, the beautiful cathedral city of Lincoln. 15 years later and with 2 children (and our dog Bailey) I decided I wanted to share my love of good teas and coffees and so The Lincoln Tea and Coffee Company was born.
John and I founded The Lincoln Tea and Coffee Company with the ambition to supply the best quality loose leaf tea and freshly roasted coffee we could. Our coffee is imported from around the world and freshly roasted here in Lincolnshire. Our tea is freshly packaged and sent to us straight from the plantation in Sri Lanka.
And whilst the taste is paramount, the ethics behind our teas and coffees are important too. Where possible we source products with the environment and the farmers in mind. A growing number of our coffees are ethically cerftified, whilst our teas come from an estate that specialises in Fairtrade and organic teas.
We love taking our tea and coffee to country fairs and markets and hearing people say how much they love it. It is because of the high quality produce we sell and our enthusiasm to share our knowledge of the world of tea and coffee that our customers keep coming back again and again.
Whether you are already a regular fresh coffee and loose leaf drinker, or someone who wants to swap your instant coffee or paper tea bag for a fresh, superior cup then we know you won’t be disappointed with the fabulous leaves and beans we have worked so hard to find.
We know not everyone may want to make tea from loose leaves so we even have our ‘silky’ pyramid bags with the same loose leaves inside so that you can enjoy the same fresh flavour.
We have also tried and tested a host of accessories and selected our favourites so that making the perfect cup is easy.
