The best kept secret in tea

You haven’t heard of Mr.Ames tea? Well, if you are discerning, it’s likely you have already tasted our superb blends. We’ve simply never been so bold as to put our name to our creations – and we have never sold direct to customers. 2020 told us now was the time to let the cat out of the bag!

So what’s the real secret

Way back in 1909 Reginald Ames began sourcing and blending fine tea for the Great British public. A little shy perhaps, Reginald only sold his marvellous creations to the finest restaurants and hotels. Until now.

Today, we blend and hand-pack all our tea in rural Kent. That means every bag is generously packed with flavour, love and expertise. The secret is in the taste… over a century in the making.
