Personal Profile
Well when I’m running things at Tetley Towers, I’m travellin’ the world tryin’ all the different teas! Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon, all kinds…. I’ve been to hundreds of tea plantations in India, Kenya, Argentina, Malawi, Japan… I could go on. What’s really great is they are filled with people who love tea just as much as I do! When you think of tea, you'll think of me (I must remember to tell Sydney to get that trademarked!)

Sydney

Job role
Gaffer's right hand man

Favourite blend
Redbush

Sugar/honey?
No I don’t have either in my tea but I do sometimes drink Redbush Vanilla when I fancy something sweet

Personal Profile
Aye up! I'm Gaffer's right hand man and 'there's nowt better than a cracking cuppa' with my lad! One day I’d love to take charge, but the others might say I'm a bit too naïve for this!

Job role
Infusion and herbal tea specialist

Favourite blend
Green with mango & passion fruit

Sugar/honey?
If I’m having a black tea, I do like to add a teaspoon of honey. I do have a bit of a sweet tooth. I like to bake cakes and biscuits and bring them in for the Tetley team. I’ve managed to prefect my oat and ginger biscuits, just the right crunch and just perfect for dunking.

Personal Profile
When I’m not baking for the gang, or being the voice of reason when Gaffer gets one of his tea obsessed ideas,I like to keep myself fit and healthy! I do regular work outs, eat right and drink lots of green tea. I like a Body Balance class and a bit of Pilates every bit as much as a boogie on a Friday night.

Maurice

Job role
Head of Innovation

Favourite blend
Blend of both - I love green tea and original so I thought why not have them together – I haven’t turned back since

Sugar/honey?
None

Personal Profile
I am quite the inventor, I spend a lot of time in my workshop creating new things, or painting if I’m in an arty mood. Some of my ideas don't go to plan as well as others, like my 5 headed teaspoon, but that's no worries - always better luck next time! When I do want to unwind , there's nowt like a warm cuppa by the fire.

Decaf

Sugar/honey?
Just a bit of milk will do

Personal Profile
I’m a proud Gardener. I have my very own vegetable patch in my back garden, with carrots, parsnips, and all kinds of trees and flowers surrounding it. I got all the tools I need, forget a shovel - I have a spade with a kettle attached so I can garden and drink tea at the same time, although it gets a little too hot to hold when the kettle boils - Maurice and I came up with that one.

Clarence

Job role

Favourite blend
Easy squeeze

Sugar/honey?
I like to have a couple of teaspoons of sugar as a treat, now and then!

Personal Profile
I keep the Tea Folk up to date with all things technical - I remember once Gaffer tried using an iPad to make a phone call, but that's no bother! I'm always here with a helping hand!

Archie

Job role
Junior trainee

Favourite blend
Super Green Berry Burst

Sugar/honey?
There's not anything like the Super Boost range to perk up my day!

Personal Profile
I'm a bit more precocious than Clarence, though somewhat more bookish, perhaps even a bit Harry Potter like (though without any magical abilities). I'm in fact Gaffer's nephew, but this is something I like to keep quiet about, incase my Uncle gets accused of bias treatment!
