About Us

Elizabeth and Barry Chantler
We are Elizabeth & Barry Chantler and we have been enthusiastic about loose leaf tea for years.

We have travelled the world visiting tea plantations in India, Sri Lanka, China and South-East Asia and attending tea ceremonies in Hong Kong and Malaysia. We only sell teas that we would drink, and we only like the best! We are also passionate about a fairer world marketplace, one in which everybody benefits, and we are as fussy about the source as much as the teas themselves.

Tea is good for you, it has benefits both for the body as well as the mind, and the better the tea the more beneficial it becomes. We believe that we have a nation of t-bag drinkers who are missing out on an enlivening and new experience (there are over 10,000 different types of loose leaf tea!).

Our aim is to make fine loose leaf tea locally available and to convert as many people as we can, to share this exciting and rewarding world with us.

We just love to talk about tea; in fact we can talk about tea all day. So, feel free to come and chat with us at one of our shows especially if you are brand new to the wonders of drinking loose leaf tea.

Please see our Diary Dates page to find out where we are going to be.
