EAST INDIA COMPANY TEAS
Tea & Herbal Infusion Selection Crafted by The East India Company

Granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1600, The East India Company was established to explore the mysteries of the East.

The result was the discovery of new and exotic goods, including tea. Sir William Hawkyns, Commander of the Hector, was part of the Company’s first voyages and arrived in India in 1608. The Company’s first best tea arrived in London and legend has it that, in 1664, the directors presented a gift of tea to King Charles II and his Portuguese Queen, Catherine of Braganza.

The drinking of tea soon took the royal court by storm, and it is thanks to this young foreign princess that the British have such a taste for it. Today, The East India Company remains proud to offer the very best teas from around the world. From the mist-kissed Himalayan foothills to the Sri-Lankan rainforests. Hand-blended herbal infusions use only the finest and purest quality ingredients. Each, attentively developed and curated by The Company’s Tea Master.
