What is Pluckley Tea?
Pluckley Tea plays a vital role in the founding of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. Owner Mr Richard Smith first created the blend after returning from India in the 1970s. He began operating from his home in Pluckley, the most haunted village in England.
The first customer to enjoy this Tea was the local Pluckley shop. 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.
Since those early days, the system of making this Tea has changed dramatically. The product, however, has not. In 1982, Richard and Janet established The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company in Pivington Mill, Pluckley. Together, they made Pluckley Tea the extremely popular beverage we know and love today.
