“My passion for a good brew began at a very early age, when I used to beg my mum to make me warm milky tea just like hers. That passion never left me, and as I grew up I learned all there was to know about loose tea and great blends, harbouring daydreams of one day owning my own tea brand and cafe.”
“I’ve always been a creative person and soon found myself working as a carpenter in theatres, managing show builds. But that wasn’t enough, so in 2016 I began selling my own range of teas at Sunday markets. One day, trudging through the rain on my way home after a busy day, I noticed a To Let sign on the side of my local railway station platform in Bowes Park, North London. And that’s when everything fell into place and my tea dream came true and the Leafy Bean brand was born.”
“From a morning reviver to an evening relaxer, I believe every moment can be made better with a great cuppa. So at Leafy Bean, we make it our mission to spread positivity and feelgood vibes through the power of great tasting and ethically produced tea. But we don’t just want to taste good, we want to be good. So our tea bags are plastic free and biodegradable, our packaging is recycled and we only work with partners who share our values.”
I smile when I think of my years as a child, sipping my milky tea as I built cafés out of LEGO, never imagining that one day I would be living the dream and people all over the world would be sitting in their homes or workplace enjoying one of my Leafy Bean blends.
And the best thing? Leafy Bean Co is growing every day, and that’s all thanks to you – fellow tea lovers united in our love for a good cuppa!”
