The Story of Holmfirth Tea

It all began with a passionate little outburst. You see, in our family business in Huddersfield, serving coffee was king and truth be told, it’s just not my cup of tea. So, at the end of one long day, I suddenly let out a bit of a rant to myself. “What about tea?!” I stamped. That was the day everything changed. I resolved to create a tea that was special. A tea I could really, really appreciate. And that was just the start.

I then started blending different varieties and combinations in the charming village of Holmfirth, Last of the Summer Wine country, where I’d decided to set up a tearoom suitable for “taking tea”. Blending was new to me, but with some of the finest ingredients and plenty of help from regulars and local businesses, I soon had a range I was happy with and very, very proud to serve. Well, once our tearoom customers tasted it, word soon spread and before I knew it, I’d had labels done, got it packaged and was selling it for people to enjoy at home – not just here in our lovely valley in West Yorkshire, but across the globe.

And Holmfirth Tea was born

At first I just wanted tea that tasted really good. Not bitter, like most teas I’d tried, which could be a bit heavy on the tongue and somehow just didn’t satisfy.

I wanted something fine, fresh and full of flavour. Something to sit with and sip. None of this dashing around people do with a takeaway cup of coffee in their hand. No, I wanted a splendid, refreshing, restorative cup of tea to drink at any time of the day.

I sat with my customers for hours and tasted different combinations of tea. Several tasting sessions later (not to mention slices of cake), we settled on an absolute belter of a brew for the first of the range and called it
Original Blend.

A quality test came next, which was passed with flying colours after a highly respected British tea merchant tried and endorsed the Original Blend. Chuffed to bits, I spread the good news with customers and together went on to create the rest of the range.

There you have it, Holmfirth Tea, a truly local’s brew that everyone can sit back, relax and enjoy. Just like I did.
