Meet the Producers #5
Our 5th producer to introduce you to is Shane from Harrison Teas. Shane attends the market every other week, and you won't be able to miss him as he always wears a top hat. (Why can't I find a phot of him in his top hat?) He is extremely knowledgeable about all things tea and can talk tea at great length!

A love of teas and the wish to give customer the best at great prices. I have an excellent range of over 70 high class teas, and I am always looking to find those teas that the experts are hiding away! My stock can change daily but rest assured I will always try to find the best teas possible, if you are looking for any tea so long as it is not branded I will do my best to find it for you. I do my best to source our tea through established relationships, individual plantations, co-ops and long standing partners. The environment and sustainability is of paramount importance and we are committed to providing as wide a range of tea as is possible, stocking teas from all tea growing regions of the world. Quality is our watch word and aim to find the best quality teas possible at a fair price for both the consumer and grower.
