It’s Time for Tea

Fine tea is now attracting the attention of leading food service professionals worldwide. The UK’s top hotels, cafes and restaurants are serving fresh, loose leaf tea because they bring a new dimension to their customers’ experience.

The specialist tea market is growing by 25% year on year since 2007 and this trend is set to continue. The key drivers of growth are:

  • Consumers trading up: Food-savvy consumers know more and demand more from the quality and provenance of their food and drink. As they discover the wider range of tea, they develop a taste for new, more complex and refined flavour experiences.
  • Health benefits: Consumers are increasingly aware of tea’s healthy properties. Western medicine is starting to endorse what the Chinese have believed for 4,000 years: tea has spectacular heath-giving properties.
