The History of Pluckley Tea
Four generations of the Smith family have worked within the Tea industry. This continues with our current owner, Mr Richard Smith, and his mother, Mrs Janet Smith. The family returned from India to the UK in the 1970s. They brought with them decades of Tea knowledge which became the foundations of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
In the early days, Janet and Richard worked from their home packing Tea Bags by hand from chests of 10,000. Their first customer, the local village shop, was the inspiration for the name of these hand-packed Tea Bags, Pluckley Tea. Today, it has become the most popular Tea we stock, and continues to enthral the thousands around the world who brew it for their morning cuppa'.

But that's not all it can offer. According to the latest scientific research, Black Teas such as Pluckley Tea can afford protection against natural, though harmful, human oxidation.

This can ultimately reduce the risks of developing numerous chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes.
