London-based tea brand The Kettle Shed has unveiled its range of biodegradable fuso teabags, after it was awarded a Great Taste award for its Bang on Breakfast variety.
After two years, the company has secured listings in various cafés, shops and restaurants around West London and beyond for its range of eighteen different tea blends. They include Tutti Frutti, a tropical fruit and coconut tea; Iron Lady, an oolong ti guan yin; and Pure White, a Chinese white tea.
The company also operates its socially responsible Give a Cup scheme, whereby it donates a tea bag directly to Chiswick homeless shelter every time somebody buys a box of The Kettle Shed tea. The donations help the homeless shelter to provide a free cup of tea to those living on the streets.
The packaging that it uses for its tea is made from recycled cardboard and the fuso tea bags that contain the tea are biodegradable, meaning that it’s a good option for the environment.
The Kettle Shed was started by Zoe Nixon, who decided to start her own company after the birth of her second child. Nixon, who started by creating tea blends and selling them loose at food and drink markets across West London, explained: “We put every effort into the company to make sure every dimension of the company is ethically correct.
“We’re ecstatic to know that our Bang on Breakfast has been awarded the coveted Great Taste award! We entered this year because we know the pedigree of the judges; if they liked our tea and awarded us well it puts us in good stead to know our tea is a great, tasty addition to any café or deli!”
