Who is Tea Huggers?

Tea Huggers is a wellness herbal tea brand with an army of fans around the world. To date, over 100,000 boxes of tea have been sold to a community of people who love the brand. Our teas are sold in over 250 stores around the UK and we export via our website to 25 countries from Canada to China, Australia to Antigua. 

We are extremely proud that our herbal teas taste as good as they smell and do what they say on the box! We're the proud owners of 10 gold stars from the Great Taste Awards - the highest accolade in the food and drinks industry.


Why back us?

Tea Huggers is a startup brand, built from scratch by Esther Thompson. After suffering from four bouts of tonsillitis, Esther swapped coffee for herbal tea and saw huge improvements in her health. Her sleep improved, stress levels reduced, her skin glowed and most importantly she never caught tonsillitis again. 

Our success to date is due to a powerful potion of passion, determination and a love of good tea.   After returning from hospital with a new baby in tow, Esther started to work on her dream - to launch a super tasting healthy herbal tea brand. She left her job as Head of Communications at the BBC to focus on growing her business. As her children have grown, so has the business. 

2018 is  our year to shine and we need your help to make it happen. 

In late 2017 we invested in a redesign of our packaging and we couldn't be happier with the results. It's eye catching, stylish, modern and fun. 

To take us to the next level we're raising £10,000 to pay for the production of the new packaging and to invest in our first full time employee to help support Esther and the brand. 

It is really simple: if you pledge an amount, starting from as little as £12, you’ll be the first to receive our new look award winning tea to say thank you! 

For everyone who backs our campaign we'll be gifting a 10% off voucher code for our website for life so if you can help support us please pledge today!

Plus the first 12 backers will get a free Tea Huggers tote!


What makes us different?

We've used the UK's top tea blender and herbalist to create blends using ingredients which have traditionally been used to energise, relax and give your body a boost. Our blends do what they say on the box. 

At Tea Huggers we believe that herbal teas should taste as good as they smell so we've packed each tea bag with the highest quality ingredients. This means that every sip is packed full of flavour and goodness. 

Our tea bags are 100% biodegradable and our packaging is recyclable so when you drink our teas you aren't just being kind to yourself you are being kind to the environment. 

Tried and tested 

We have a strong fan club of people who have experienced huge health benefits after drinking our teas. But don't just take our word for it. Below is a selection of reviews from our tea fans on why they love our tea:
