This April we celebrate National Tea Day (21st) and to raise a teacup in celebration, we've picked six of our favourite local tea suppliers

From classic Earl Grey to fruity blends and teas packed with anti-oxidants - these are our favourites.

Estate Tea Co.

This independent tea merchant based in Heaton specialises in single estate, small batch and fine quality loose-leaf teas. Their collection changes throughout the year depending on which teas are in season – we love the Earl Grey rooibos tea, just perfect for a before-bed cuppa as it’s naturally caffeine free. 

Love Leaf Tea

Shop a range of fabulous loose-leaf teas which are full of great flavours and health benefits, online or at food markets across the North East. From green, white and matcha teas to fruit infusions, rooibos and flowering teas, Love Leaf Tea have them all. We recommend the Rhubarb Spritz packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants – no wonder it’s their best-seller!


This family business has been supplying the North East with premium quality teas since 1907. Buying from more than 200 tea estates and small holder organisations, Ringtons are committed to ethical and Fairtrade practices, whilst also supplying the region with high-quality tea. Shop everything from tea bags and loose leaf teas to fruity and herbal infusions and all the tea accessories (and accompanying biscuits) you need on their website. 

Batch Tea Co

.Expertly crafted by their own tea master in Sheffield, Batch Tea Co. offer a range of delicious artisan teas including chamomile, green, chai, rooibos and breakfast teas. We love the sound of the Sassy Noir with fruity and floral flavours balanced by a citrus finish. Visit their website to shop the full range.

True Tea Co.

Discover more than 200 speciality teas at True Tea Co. in Harrogate this National Tea Day. Their extensive range includes more than 80 loose leaf blends ranging from English breakfast black tea to caramel rooibos tea, as well as fruit, green and oolong pyramid teabag blends. If you want your tea fix on a regular basis, sign up to their three-, six- or 12-month subscription services.  

Yorkshire Tea

One of the UK’s best-selling teas, know throughout Yorkshire (and the UK) is Yorkshire Tea – and there was no doubt that it would make it onto our list of favourites. Every box is built on 130 years of tea-blending expertise, combining the best teas together in just the right way for a uniquely balanced and consistent flavour. Shop the original tea blend, Yorkshire Tea Decaf or Yorkshire Gold, as well as toast and jam and biscuit flavours at stockists Yorkshirewide.
