The face behind the brand

Hello! Thanks for visiting The Steepery Tea Co’s online store.

I fondly recall making my Mum and Dad tea. In our house, the kettle was always the first thing to go on in the morning, when you walked in the door or when a visitor came around. It was not a grand affair, but a ritual all the same, one that evokes warm and happy memories.

I am fortunate to have travelled extensively and have called both the UK and Australia home. During these travels, I immersed myself in global tea culture visiting tea houses, tea stores, tea masters and tea estates whenever the opportunity presented.

It is these experiences and being passionate about the world of tea that led to the creation of The Steepery Tea Co. My aim is to share enjoyable and enriching tea drinking experiences that draw upon some of the most interesting elements of global tea culture.

I am a Certified Tea Master yet in my own eyes I will always be a tea apprentice as it is impossible to master all of teas intricacies. I hope you enjoy looking around my store and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or feedback on the teas and teawares you find.

Warmest regards
Kym Cooper
