Celebrating 180 years of quality and expertise


From being sold by the Tetley brothers on the back of a horse-drawn cart to providing magical moments across the world, we’ve come a long way in the last 180 years!

Take a look through this page to see how everything we’ve done so far has meant your Tetley cuppa tastes as good now as it did back then.

44 years – that’s how long the Tea Folk have been with us and they’ve evolved just as much as we have!

Gaffer and the gang know their tea and that you just can’t beat a Tetley cuppa.

Our Blenders and Buyers have been crossing the globe for 180 years to source the freshest, tastiest teas and bringing them together to make sure every cuppa tastes just as good as the last.

Our classic Tetley blend incorporates teas from various regions which each bring their own qualities to your cuppa.

At Tetley, we are committed to ensuring a better life for farmers. As without them, there would be no brew that we love so much! We’ve been working together for 180 years and their expertise in the tea fields like the one below means they know the freshest leaves and what makes a quality cuppa.

And as if our tea doesn’t get any better, we are proud to be 100% Rainforest Alliance certified and one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, which helps to create a thriving, global tea industry that is socially fair and environmentally sustainable.

How about that from your humble cuppa?
