What is Pluckley Tea?
Pluckley Tea is a blend of the finest quality Assam and Kenya Loose Leaf Black Teas. Assam Tea, in particular, originates from the north-eastern state of the same name, located in India. Kenya Tea comes from the country of Kenya in East Africa.
Both countries have only started producing Tea within the last two centuries. In the world of Tea, this is extremely young! Take China Green Tea, for example - an infusion made some 5,000 years ago! Nevertheless, when blended together, Kenya and Assam Tea make a match made in heaven. When blended together, they make our wonderful Pluckley Tea.
History of Pluckley Tea
This seemingly unassuming beverage played a vital role in the establishment of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company in 1982. The owner, Mr Richard Smith, first introduced the blend to the UK after returning from living in India during the 1970s.
With the help of his mother and co-owner, Mrs Janet Smith, as well as a few others, Richard hand-packed Tea from chests of ten-thousand into packages of either 40 or 80 Tea Bags. This later become known as Pluckley Tea, named after the most haunted village in England - where we're still based today!
Pluckley Tea makes up part of who we are as a company. It remains one of the most popular Teas we stock. Why not find out what makes it so great today with our Pluckley Tea 40 Tea Bags. Silver Caddy? We guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Benefits of Drinking Pluckley Tea
Did you know that Black Tea can enhance cognitive function? A study conducted at the University of Singapore and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has the answers. The research project saw some 2,500 participants aged 55 or over undergo cognitive measuring.
Two years later, scientists remeasured those involved. The results established that participants who drunk two or three cups of Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline. Those who drank six to ten cups a day, meanwhile, had up to a 63% lower chance.
