Two UK premium organic independent tea brands are joining forces to better capitalise on the organic and speciality tea boom.

English Tea Shop, a leading UK-based independent speciality tea company, is today announcing the acquisition of Joe’s Tea Company, a premium lifestyle tea brand based in East London.

How English Tea Shop is riding a wave of demand for high-quality, organic food and drink.

Organic is a £2 billion global industry. Suranga Herath, CEO of English Tea Shop, is tapping into the growing interest in high-quality, ethically-sourced produce to grow his £22 million turnover business by 25% this year.
