Pluckley Tea 1100 Tea Bags
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
What’s better than a cup of Pluckley Tea? Try 1,000 cups! If you have a passion for Pluckley, a thirst for Tea, or wish to promote healthy living, then this is the brew for you. Our flagship tea is the one we’re known for all around the world. And for many good reasons, too. Tea was supposedly discovered by a Chinese Emperor in 2737 BCE. Our Pluckley Tea, on the other hand, was the creation of Mr Richard Smith, owner (not Emperor) of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company upon his return from India in the 1970’s.
Using only the finest quality Assam and Kenya Tea, Richard settled into his home in Pluckley, known as the most haunted village in England, and began to hand-pack Tea Bags from chests of ten thousand into parcels ready to be sold. With the help of his mother, Mrs Janet Smith, as well as a few others, Mr Smith worked from his home supplying our first customer, a local shop in Pluckley. Today, we still serve this wonderful shop, as well as a multitude of other shops, cafes, and delicatessens nationwide. But Pluckley 1,000 Two Cup Tea Bags are not just for commercial use, far from it in fact. Choose to enjoy Pluckley Tea 1,000 times over from the comfort of your own home. Bring to life the history that keeps this company beating. To our core, we’re a family business, and hope your own family adore Pluckley Tea as much as we do.
So, why Pluckley? To this day, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company remain situated in this delightful and quaint little village nestled away in the Kentish countryside. It’s most famously known for its ghostly presences and ghoulish encounters which date back hundreds of years. But that’s not the reason we chose to settle here. Pluckley is, quite simply, beautiful. In fact, it’s beauty has not gone unnoticed, particularly when referring to British television during the early 1990’s. Our village rose to fame as the backdrop for “The Darling Buds of May”, starring David Jason, Pam Ferris, Philip Franks, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. However, you want to know about the tea.
The blending of Assam Tea and Kenya Tea is a match made in heaven. Both teas come from a variety of the tea plant called Camellia sinensis var assamica. Incidentally, this tea plant variety was discovered in Assam in 1823. The find has been credited to a Scottish explorer and merchant named Robert Bruce. He had stumbled upon the leaves growing near Rangpur (present-day Sivasagar). Intrigued, Robert went on to clarify his findings with the Singpho tribe, the indigenous population of the region who would, in turn, present him with some of the plants as a gesture of goodwill. Bruce then sent these leaves to his brother, C. A. Bruce, for further examination. Eventually, the leaves were studied at the Calcutta Botanical Gardens, where it was finally confirmed that the specimen was, in fact, tea. Our company owes a debt of gratitude to the Bruce brothers. Without them, we would never be able to make Pluckley Tea, or at least as it’s known and loved today.
