Good and Proper Tea Co
Having bored her friends for years about wanting to bring better cups of tea to London Emilie GandPs founder finally decided to do something about it. With a dream of converting a 1974 Citroën-H van into a mobile brew bar she took the idea to crowdfunding platform Kickstarter where 372 backers each of whom pledged anywhere between £1 to £1000 made that dream come true and Good and Proper Tea Co was born. Each of our backers’ names are still displayed proudly on the back window of the van which the backers also affectionately christened Watson.
Launched in Shoreditch
The first cup of tea was brewed in Shoreditch on 3rd December 2012 and we haven’t stopped brewing since.
Since the launch of Good and Proper Tea Co in 2012 we have taken our much-loved van to events and festivals across the UK sharing our tea and attracting global press coverage as we went. But having popped up all over the place gaining then quickly abandoning a loyal following of tea-drinkers at each location we decided it was time to find somewhere to call home. So following a second successful crowdfunding campaign this time on Crowdcube we have finally opened our first Good and Proper Tea Bar in Clerkenwell as well as a kiosk in Old Street.
In a Festival field near you…
So for those of you who have been loyally buying our tea online for years or have queued for a brew in a rainy festival field we cant wait to welcome you in.
We work hard to find and select teas from farms and cooperatives around the world always looking for something special that will stand up on its own without blending or flavouring.
At The Good and Proper Tea Co, its not just the tea we want to get right we care about our people too. We are lucky enough to have a team of brewers who are passionate about tea and most importantly passionate about getting your cup of tea just right. So whether you’re after a strong breakfast tea to perk you up in the morning or are looking for a particular Japanese green, the Good and Proper Tea Co team are there to help find it as well as help you choose the right tools to brew it more easily at home.
