Posters

Since launching only 2 weeks ago one of the things we have had to start producing is Point Of Sale information, such as posters. With that in mind I spoke to our designer and asked her to come up with some posters which we felt:

  1. Represented Plymouth Tea and its brand
  2. Made people want to buy a box of Plymouth Tea
  3. Made people have good feelings when they viewed them

The results were very good and we decided that we wanted not only a nautical theme but also a ‘Tea Party’ theme too.

We have decided to supply some of the shops carrying our tea with A2 sized posters which hark back to the early part of the 20th century, when people think of Plymouth they think of all the wonderful history that has taken place in this city, some of which is reflected in our 3 blends, Mayflower, Armada and Drake.

If you are out and about in Plymouth and see one of our posters we hope it gives you the feeling we hoped it would.

Contact us if you would like to sell Plymouth Tea.

Tea Recipes

Here are a couple of recipe ideas using Plymouth Tea as an ingredient!

 

Tea Jelly

2 lemons 
1 package lemon jelly 
3/4 pint (approx.) freshly brewed Plymouth Tea 
Whipped cream to decorate 

Grate the skins of the lemons finely. Place the jelly in a measure and make up to 1 pint with freshly brewed Plymouth tea. Stir until dissolved, and then cool. When it is slightly thickened stir in the grated lemon peel and pour into a wetted 1-pint mould or into individual moulds. Decorate with cream.

 

Tea-Marinated Pork Chops 

Tea Marinade
2 cups water
2 Plymouth Tea bags
1 Tbs. lemon juice

Preparation:
Steep Plymouth Tea in boiling water to desired strength, then strain or remove Plymouth tea bags. Add lemon juice to the tea. Cool the liquid to room temperature, then use a marinade for pork chops, chicken or white fish. Marinate for at least 30 minutes

Taste Of The West

Exciting day for Plymouth Tea as we have entered our 3 blends into the ‘Taste Of The West’ awards for 2013. Heres hoping the judges will love our tea as much as everyone else seems to. We will be giving away a lot of free samples on the day so that all the tea rooms, hotels, restaurants, bistros, cafes, shops and any other establishment can experience Plymouth Tea.

Katie has also been at a chamber lunch today speaking to all the local business’s about Plymouth tea.

Working Together

Lovely email from Amy Naples at the Chamber of Commerce in Plymouth MA, USA, a place at some point in the future we will hopefully base our US operations from. We will hopefully be working together in the future to bring Plymouth Tea to American Citizens, indeed our Mayflower blend is inspired by the founding fathers.

Continuing with the nautical theme we had a lovely meeting today with the Royal Yacht Club which does welcome non-members. I’m begging you, go for lunch there, the views of Drakes Island and Plymouth Sound are un-paralleled.

Plymouth Community

The weather today was almost biblical and yet we still had to brave the elements as we had a meeting at Plymouth Argyle. When Plymouth Tea was originally conceived we realised that it was important to make sure the Plymouth Community was exposed to our tea and PAFC are the biggest community gathering so it made sense to see if any sort of partnership could be made.

Katie and myself had a lovely meeting and left with spirits high

Plymouth Tea Begins

Our first consignment is now ready which feels amazing as it has been 2 years in development.

Plymouth Tea started as a conversation between two of our directors. Fast forward to today and we are now looking at our boxes.

Now starts the really hard work convincing the people and business’s of Plymouth that Plymouth Tea is as good as we keep saying it is. Hopefully in a few years time Plymouth Tea will be stocked in Tea rooms not only across our country but the world!
