Our first week (sort of...)
Posted by Adrian Lee on January 26, 2012 (0 Comments)
We're really delighted to be up and running online!
It's been about a year since we decided to set up a fine tea company that would be very different to others. A bit bored by the slightly earnest, almost patronising approach we found in other places, we decided to bring high quality tea to everyone in a way that would be simple, kind on the eye, and unpretentious.
We started with sourcing magnificent product and we're very proud of what we found.
Next came design - we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the brilliant people at http://www.clinic.co.uk/
We love their work, always have. In our view they are the finest design and marketing company in the UK. We'd absolutely recommend them to anyone small, medium, gigantic.
For six months we've also been popping up at various markets. We started off on a tiny table in Tanner St SE1, where we made lots of friends and got spotted by The Evening Standard:
Since then we've also taken Sparrow to Brick Lane's Upmarket, Pimlico, via The Barbican and Real Food Markets and have been slowly spreading the word, selling our Teas. This will continue in the year ahead, although there's only two of us so it may be more of a pop-up approach! We'll keep you posted on blog, newsletter, social networks.
Thanks for reading up on our early adventures.
More news soon!
