My name is Sampath Amarasena and I have the very exciting but unique role of being the Master Blender at English Tea Shop.
Working with an organic brand like English Tea Shop means my focus isn’t solely on making our teas taste great, a large part of my role is creating win-win situations for the business and our independent local farmers.
With summer time approaching, we wanted to celebrate the joys of the Golden Goodness - turmeric. It has long been identified as one of the wonder spices, with numerous health benefits and a flavour that adds a tantalising taste to tea blends.
Organic producers recognise and understand the long-term impact that farming can have on the environment and global agriculture. Recently, there have been two major stories suggesting an imminent crisis in global agriculture. Firstly, we heard from Bioversity International that 12 major crops – including potatoes, coffee and chocolate – may become extinct in the not too distant future.
My name is Lakshman Chandrakanthan, I’m a farmer from a small village in Balangoda, Sri Lanka. My journey with English Tea Shop begun in 2016 when I first became part of their supply chain – and I haven’t looked back since!
With winter behind us, now’s the time to rejuvenate and embrace the sweet days of spring with a fragrant cup of tea. Whether it’s a fruity tea to tease us with the imminent summer days, or a revitalizing blend to wake up our taste buds, English tea Shop has a range of teas to suit every need.

At English Tea Shop, sustainability is so much more than a buzzword, it’s at the heart of everything we do. To give you an idea of what this means in practice, we wanted to take you on a journey from farm to cup to show you how English Tea Shop not only sources the highest quality tea, but helps change lives as it does so.
Few people take the time to truly consider the journey tea takes from farm to cup. At English Tea Shop, we want to change this! We pride ourselves on building extremely close and long-lasting relationships with our organic farmers, without whom our company simply wouldn’t exist. To help celebrate the amazing work our farmers do each and every day, we wanted to give you a peak behind the scenes, and to get to know one of our farmers a little better.
With winter just around the corner, now’s the time to bundle up against the cold with a steaming cup of beautiful tea. Whether it’s a suitably festive blend, a detox for January, or herbal teas to fortify the immune system, English tea Shop has a range of teas to suit every hibernal need. Here are some of our winter favourites:
