The English Cream Tea Company offers 'the best of British' in terms of brand, product, taste and manners. From cream tea hampers, shortbread and brownies to delightful ranges of preserves and fine teas, these are delicious, memorable treats focussed around the great tradition of Afternoon Tea. We see ourselves delivering 'Britishness' and even the gift packs offer tips on best tea time etiquette.
Heading the company is Jane Malyon who's had a lifelong passion for the wonderful tradition of afternoon tea. She has made many media appearances including BBC TV and is an expert on English tea time manners. in 2011 The English Cream Tea Company gained the Guinness World Record for the largest tea party ever.
One of the teas in the range is created in honour of Jane's great grandfather, Henry Norris (1852-1954) who worked in London's East/West India Docks his whole life, becoming CEO of the Port of London Authority. He ensured teas kept coming into Britain to our teapots, especially during World War I and for this work, King George V awarded him with the CBE (Commander of the British Empire).
