Who would have thought a tea could taste this good and also help you to lose weight? Pluckley Tea likewise boasts a truly unique history. It makes up part of the foundation of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. This beverage was the brainchild of Richard Smith, owner of our proud establishment, upon his return from India in the 1970’s. After three generations’ worth of knowledge in tea-growing, Mr Smith and his mother, Mrs Janet Smith, set up shop in Pluckley, nestled away in the beautiful Kentish countryside. Together, they sowed the seeds of who we are today. Pluckley Tea was where it all began. Start as you mean to go on with this delightful beverage to hand.
What’s in the name? Pluckley, our home, is (supposedly) the most haunted village in England. Even The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has experienced its own ghostly anomalies in the past. One of Pluckley’s more renowned ghoulish visions is that of the ‘Horse Drawn Coach,’ which has been witnessed at various locations around the village for more than 20 years. In early November 1997, one terrified resident claimed to have had their car filled with the distinct noise of “horse hooves on a cobbled street” as she drove home. On another occasion, a woman was returning home from babysitting her granddaughter when the disturbing image of a coach pulled by horses could be seen passing her on the road opposite.
She would later describe this haunting event with such vivid detail, including bright lights coming from the carriage windows, and the same, chilling sound of horse hooves on cobbles. Another infamous ghost is that of ‘The White Lady’, who is known to frequent the Parish Church of St. Nicholas. We have actually named a tea in her honour called, quite literally, White Lady Tea. But if you’re a “non-believer”, then you’re best off with Pluckley Tea. Buy online or come visit us in store.
