Unwind with: Louise from Teapigs

How did Teapigs come about?
I was a tea taster, slurping hundreds of cups and travelling to exotic tea growing places and Nick my business partner was selling tea (regular tea!). We knew that the UK market was missing really great tea, for years we have had good tea but nothing compared to the wonderful world of teas out there. We also wanted to sell really great tea without the pomp and ceremony, we wanted to get whole leaf quality teas into the hands of as many british tea lovers as possible and so... with that teapigs was born.

How do you relax/switch off?
I love walking Harvey my dog ( also the teapigs office dog), trips to Richmond park are a great way to escape!
