Story Behind Dorset Tea
In 1934 our founder Keith Spicer started blending teas in his Bournemouth kitchen. Equipped with an old butcher’s bike he set out to deliver his creations to businesses around Dorset.
75 years later in 2009 Dorset Tea™ was created to celebrate Keith’s work and Dorset’s natural beauty and sunshine which goes into every cup today; that’s why we call our black tea, our Sunshine Blend.
For the past 10 years we’ve been pouring the golden rays of Dorset sunshine into our tea, bringing you over 1.6 billion cups of sunshine! We’re pretty proud of that achievement and we hope you’ve enjoyed them, so please raise your mugs to the next 10 years of Dorset Tea.
