Did we get you?

If you fell for our April fool’s joke, don’t feel bad – you weren’t the only one! The post below is indeed a hoax. There’s no such thing as The Portside Collection because there’s no such thing as a left handed tea bag!

We’ve had this under wraps for some time. In fact, it’s been 2 years in the making, but the time to unveil this very special range has finally arrived.

Back at the start of 2013, our CEO Simon Smith announced he was beginning some research and development into a range of products for left handed people. Simon is left handed himself and says that he has always found it that little bit harder to make the perfect cup of tea than his right handed counterparts.

Production began 6 months ago and we now have a range very similar to some of our core tea making items, but      with left handed appeal.


When ships used to bring our tea to the UK they would moor on the left hand side of the harbour – or portside – and so the new range has been given the grand title of The Portside Collection.

Launching today, we have a very special offer of 25% off any of the items from the collection.
