Westcountry Tea

It all started a few years ago, when we were asked by family and friends to produce our own tea blends for their enjoyment.....

We have been producing our own tea blends and infusions for many years, as we were disappointed with most tea products on the market not delivering the bold flavours we sought.  

They proved so popular with our friends and family that in 2010 we decided to bring our own speciality teas to the Cornish tea market and very soon they went countrywide being stocked in farm shops, delicatessens and independent retailers.  

As we already had an established herb and spice company with all the equipment and know-how, we were able to release our first five tea products under the name ‘Time Out Tea’ in no time. The teas were so successful that we soon increased the range to twelve Time Out Tea flavours adding a further four new blends in 2017.

In 2016 we introduced the new range Lazy Days Tea with the wish to support ‘CHICKS’, a charity close to our hearts. 

Within months of Lazy Days Tea going on shelves we won Silver from ‘Taste of the West’ for the Earl Grey tea blend, showing that we are not just about snazzy packaging, but we also know how to make a quality brew. 

We have always taken pride in the quality of our tea blends and are so happy with the awards we have received for them.

In 2014 we were presented with our first award for our ‘Peppermint & Rosemary’ Time Out Tea from ‘Great Taste’.

2016 we won Gold from ‘Taste of the West’ for our ‘Camomile & Elderflower’ Time Out Tea.

We where over the moon with comments from the judging panel…One said “this is probably the best camomile tea I have tasted in a long time” and another announced “this is one of the best herbal teas I’ve ever had. Perfect!”

As mentioned above we also won that year a Silver from ‘Taste of the West’ for the Earl Grey Lazy Days Tea.

2017 we won Gold, this time for our ‘Spiced Winter Rooibos’ Time Out Tea.

2018 brought us another Silver and yet another Gold. Silver for Time Out Tea Lavender & Lemon Verbena and Gold for Time out Tea Nettle & Rose. 

We continue to strive to create exiting and delightful tea blends.
