Description

Pluckley Tea, be it our loose leaf tea or our Tea Bags, is unquestionably our most popular beverage. If you, like many, can’t get enough of this delicious, great-quality brew, then why not consider stocking up with our Pluckley Tea 550 One Cup Tea Bags?

A wonderful blend of Kenya and Assam Tea, these little pockets of joy were the creation of Mr Richard Smith, owner of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, upon his return from India in the 1970’s. Initially, Mr Smith had operated from his then-new home in Pluckley, the most haunted village in England and the inspiration for the name of this tea.

How Pluckley Tea was Created

With the help of his mother, Mrs Janet Smith, as well as a few others, Richard hand-packed Tea Bags from chests of ten thousand into packages ready to be sold. His first customer was a local shop in the village; a shop we today still cater for.

Over time, Pluckley Tea became our flagship beverage. Since 1982, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has operated from the nearby business estate of Pivington Mill, maintaining its Pluckley roots.

However, Pluckley Tea is no longer just known within the confines of Kent, its name now reaches around the world. We take pride in sharing with you our history, and we hope you take pride in sharing our Pluckley Tea with friends and family. Buy online or come visit us in store.

Alternatively, Pluckley Tea can be found in a multitude of shops, cafes, and delicatessens nationwide.

Pluckley Tea Blend

So, why blend Kenya and Assam Tea? Believe it or not, these two brews have a lot in common, only separated by age and geography. Assam Leaf Tea (and Indian Tea as a whole for that matter) was discovered in 1823.

Kenya Tea, meanwhile, began in 1903. Assam is a region in India while Kenya is a country in East Africa with more than 4,000 miles in between. Yet both teas come from the Camellia sinensis var assamica plant, a unique variety of the tea plant.

Both teas are also notably malty in flavour and offer a full-bodied profile. Statistically, Kenya and India are the 3rd and 4th largest exporters of tea respectively. In 2016, Kenya accounted for 10.4% of global tea exports at $680.6 Million USD, while India accounted for 10.1% at $661.7 Million USD. Could these two competitors go on to give China and Sri Lanka a run for their money? We’ll let you be the judge.

Facing the Challenge of Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics

Plastic has taken hold of the world, causing unimaginable damage to the environment. Microplastics in Tea Bags, in particular, has become increasingly problematic in the industry, which is why we have since branched away from this.

Now, our Pluckley Tea 550 One Cup Tea Bags, like all of our Tea Bag products, are created using only plant-based materials. This has become known as “bioplastic.”

Meanwhile, if you’re wondering “are Tea Bags recyclable?,” the answer is “yes” when you buy from us. Each pocket of goodness is, in fact, compostable tea bags to EN-13432 standard (EU standard for industrially compostable items).

It’s a win on all fronts, then, when it comes to this delightful infusion. Why not buy it and brew today with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company?

  1. We had both tea and coffee as part of our welcome pack on a break in Whitstable and found them both to be very tasteful, so bought them on our return home.
