Pluckley Tea 80 Tea Bags
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Pluckley Tea is bold, is rich, is flavoursome, is everything you’d expect from a beverage unique to our company. We are proud of our creation and wish to share it with you 80 times over with our very own Pluckley Tea 80 Tea Bags. Made with only the finest quality Assam and Kenya Tea, this incredible blend shares a long and expansive history with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
Pluckley Tea was first created by Richard Smith, owner of our establishment, upon his return from India in the late 1970’s. Mr. Smith began operating from his then-new home in Pluckley, the most haunted village in England, blending tea for a local shop we still cater for today. 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 of either 40 or 80 tea bags.
This eventually became known as, you guessed it, Pluckley Tea! Since 1982, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has operated from the nearby business estate of Pivington Mill, maintaining its Pluckley roots. We are nestled away in the beautiful Kentish countryside, yet our Pluckley Tea reaches out across the world. So, why not share with your friends and family the Spirit of Pluckley? Buy online or come visit us in store. Alternatively, Pluckley Tea, either in tea bag form or in loose leaf, can be found in a multitude of shops, cafes, and delicatessens nationwide owing to its immense popularity.
Pluckley Tea is a perfect example of two worlds colliding to make something truly special. Tea grown in Assam, India, began its story in 1823 following the discovery of the Camellia sinensis var assamica plant. Kenya Tea, on the other hand, was first created some decades later in 1903. Separated by age and geography, many would believe these two teas to have very little in common.
Yet, most interestingly, Kenya Tea is made predominantly with leaves from the Camellia sinensis var assamica, too. In 2016, Kenya and India were the 3rd and 4th largest exporters of tea respectively. 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 just as soon as you’ve tried our Pluckley Tea 80 Tea Bags.

Health Benefits of Pluckley Tea: It is known that humans are especially susceptible to oxidation. Oxygen molecules create stress on our organs and tissues by introducing free radicals to the body. These harmful unpaired electrons, when left unchecked, can wreak havoc on the body, leading to numerous health complications. The antioxidants found in Pluckley Tea, on the other hand, have the ability to slow down the damaging effects of oxidation by neutralising free radicals.
Ultimately, this can lead to reduced risks of developing coronary heart disease and even cancer. In fact, a 2015 meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. It’s important to note, though, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company do not endorse the consumption of tea for this purpose.
