PekoeTea Tea Makers

Pekoe Tea has gone from a small market stall and online order business to where they are today, importing teas directly from around the world and creating their own blends in-house. The centerpiece of Pekoe Tea is their tea shop on Leven Street in Edinburgh, where their customers can taste some of the finest teas available in the world, prepared traditionally and always with an interest in and respect for the origins and culture of tea.

Pekoe Tea's passion for tea has led them to visit tea-growing areas around the world including China, India, Sri Lanka and Kenya and in the process they have discovered a world of flavours and aromas from hand-made and single estate teas that are only now starting to become better known in the UK. The tea maker's focus is to bring the best teas available to their base in Scotland and to share their discoveries and expertise. To do this, Pekoe Tea have built personal relationships with growers and producers around the world and trade directly with them. This way, not only do they get access to some of the finest teas available, but they also have the inside story on how they are produced as well as the history of why and how the methods came to be. Building these personal relationships is key, but Pekoe Tea are also accredited by the Ethical Tea Partnership. All of Pekoe Tea's teas are imported into Edinburgh and packed by hand, with their full range available to taste in their Edinburgh tea shop. Enjoy...

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
