FINALLY, A GOOD AND PROPER CUPPA
“An imported culture of skinny lattes and frappucinos-to-go has meant coffee has dominated our high streets for over a decade. And yet, though tea remains the nation’s favourite hot drink, the quality on offer is more often than not distinctly average. That’s what I wanted to change, by offering fellow tea-drinkers the same quality experience that my coffee-junkie friends currently enjoy."
How it all started
Having bored her friends for years about the poor quality of tea in London, our founder Emilie finally decided to do something about it. With plans to convert a 1974 Citroën-H van into a mobile tea bar, she took the idea to crowdfunding platform Kickstarter & 372 backers made that dream come true. Each of their names are still displayed proudly on the back window of that van, which the backers affectionately christened ‘Watson’.
The first cup of tea was brewed in Shoreditch on the 3rd December 2012. Many years later and thanks to the support of our many wonderful customers, friends, partners and suppliers, Good & Proper Tea has grown to an online store, a fast-growing network of cafe and restaurant partners – and of course the van too lives on.
