Since 2008 we have built strong relationships with tea importers, exporters and farmers. With their help, we are able to maintain a rigorously curated menu of premium loose-leaf teas that are balanced between quality and affordability.
Sourcing suppliers from around the world requires patience and persistence. Distance, language, shipments gone awol, grumpy customs officers, and a myriad of other road bumps can all contribute to the challenges inherent in bringing far-flung teas to your cup.
Additionally, each tea needs to be steeped, slurped, and sampled before it can be approved as a Clement & Pekoe cuppa. Once a mutually beneficial relationship with a tea supplier is established, we recognize our responsibility in showcasing these teas to the best of our ability. This is not only to give our customers the finest product but also to honour the work of small farms and their traditional production methods which go back generations.
The Irish market is a peculiar one, while tea drinking is taken seriously the kind of tea consumed can be limited. Our goal is not only to offer a range of alternatives but to spark curiosity and delight the palate. With 50+ teas and counting there is no limit to your cup.
