Mr. Ames

A flavoursome tea that is ethically sourced, environmentally-friendly and blended right here in Kent? That's a brew we could fall in love with - in fact you've probably already tried it as they have been supplying the finest restaurants and hotels for years. And now you can buy direct!

Not yet heard of Mr.Ames tea? Well, if you are discerning, it’s likely you have already tasted their superb blends. It’s simply that they’ve never been so bold as to put a name to their creations – and they have never sold direct to customers.

It’s likely you have enjoyed a cup of this superb tea without knowing it, because the experts have been brewing this blend for over 100 years – and you’ll be able to taste it.

Way back in 1909 Reginald Ames began sourcing and blending fine tea for the Great British public. A little shy perhaps, Reginald only sold his marvellous creations to the finest restaurants and hotels. Until now. When 2020 hit Mr.Ames tea decided it was high time to let the cat out of the bag and sell directly to the public!

Today, they blend and hand-pack all their tea in rural Kent. That means every bag is generously packed with flavour, love and expertise.

We think you’ll love the 9 blends, all of which we’ve tried here at Muddy Towers and are now firm favourites. The pairing notes on each packet will help you experience tea in new and exciting ways. Your taste buds will thank you for being generous – why not try a few?

Hand-packing tea in Kent provides jobs in the community. But Mr.Ames is most proud of their commitment to ethical sourcing of ingredients from caring growers all around the world, with a keen eye on sustainability.

Ethical sourcing is only the beginning. Mr.Ames tea comes in pyramids that are 100% compostable and even the packaging is recyclable. You’ll notice we haven’t added daft strings and fiddly labels to every pyramid…that’s just not planet-friendly.

So every flavoursome sip of Mr.Ames tea will enliven your taste buds and earn you planet brownie points. So spread the word about the best kept secret in tea – produced right here in Tonbridge, Kent.
