On 10th February 2016 our Sales Representative Ronald Tutt and our in house Tea Sommelier Alicia Persichini were invited to join the Macknade Fine Food Shop's Meet the Suppliers Event to meet some of the customers and the staff that sell our products!

We were asked to provide samples of the teas and coffee's that Macknade's stock from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company so that their customers have more of an idea of what they are buying, the story behind it and just a little bit more about us.

The samples we provided were the Japanese Cherry Sencha Green Tea which went down an absolute treat, not a single complaint was uttered and it even converted some none green tea drinkers with its light delicate sweet taste and floral heady aromas! It had the crowds (and staff) mesmerised!

The coffee sample we brought along was the Kentish Roast, a wonderfully well rounded medium blend coffee, a real every day cup! Which was also well received.

We were joined by Whitstable Pickle Co and Artisan Bakery. It was really nice to meet other local suppliers, to be able to talk produce and share some stories!

It has been a while since the Kent and Sussex Tea Company has taken part in a trade show but we thoroughly enjoyed being out there talking to the public!

We just want to say a big Thank you to all of our customers who came along, Whitstable Pickle Co for being so friendly, Macknade staff for not only being so welcoming and helpful but also being so passionate to learn about our products.
