Hello,

Between now and Christmas there's half a ton of Happiness Tea to be sold. We couldn't quite believe it ourselves when we number-crunched the figures the other day. Hello world, we've come a long way from that basement flat in Hampstead...

  • Fair-trading
    .
    We have lots of people ask us if our teas are Fairtrade. They don't carry the Faritrade logo but we still like to think we trade fairly.

    Our Spanish supplier is a cooperative that started in 1986 researching the planting and cultivation of aromatic plants in the mountains of Alicante, Spain. They offered the first chance for local farmers to grow differing varieties of plants that had not been grown in this region before.

    In 1998 they started to collaborate with Non Government organizations to teach organic cultivation in Spain, sharing their experiences with other farmers. Nowadays, our farmer and the cooperative collaborate with a NGO that helps mistreated women and children in South America. Their next project is to produce energy for the farms in their region with solar power.

    We hope you can taste the sustainable sweetness in our Spanish Orange, Rosemary, Hawthorn, Raspberry leaf and Lemon balm next time you're sipping our blends.

    meeting our customers
    .
    We've been having a lot of fun meeting all the Harvey Nichols customers during our tasting sessions.

    We still have two dates left on the calender so if you're in the area do pop in for a chat and a cuppa.

    Leeds-6 August
    Manchester-13 August.

    ps this photo was actually taken at the Savoy last week where we picked up a Gift of the Year 2005 - Highly commended prize for Teastack. It was nice to see you there Patsy darling, thanks for all your support.

    Tea Time
    I'm not Italian but often fantasize that I have a family in Italy. Generations of secret recipes would have been passed to me by a process of osmosis and through hours spent loitering around the kitchen table. I would have learnt how to "mix it until the dough feels right," or how to "add enough to taste."

    These are the biscuits that my nonna would have made with me as a piccola regazza. They are light and melt in your mouth. Enjoy.
