We strive to meet high standards with every tea bag we produce and we aim to get things just right in order to ensure our customers are pleased with every aspect of their purchase. Not only do we strive to produce the best tasting tea, but we want our tea to possess a stimulating aroma and the packaging to represent a genuine passion for all things tea.

Palanquin Tea History

Palanquin Tea began trading in 1993, when levels of tea variety were low compared to the substantial choice today. At this time, spiced tea bags were not available in the UK. For this reason, we are proud to say that we were the inventors and pioneers in producing Spiced Tea (Masala Chai) in tea bag form and made this delicious drink more accessible and convenient for the public.

Since our humble beginnings, we have continued to create more innovative and pleasing tea blends, so today we can offer our customers a greater variety of teas, all of which are made and packed by us in The Tea Factory Ltd, our family-run Essex based company premises.
