Who we are

After 6 months in, we are committed as ever to bring good quality premium tea to the high street. Serving tea, the way it was intended to be served.

Hi I’m Liam, the founder and owner behind Rudyards Ltd. The Beeston Tea house. After spending 7 years working in healthcare administration I felt it was time for a change and decided to sell up and travel; see as much of the world as I could. Explore the unknown, well unknown to I, one could hardly become Stanley or Livingston these days.

But I was determined to have the best adventure I could have, meet new people, cultures and societies. Make new friends the world over. And that is just what I did. Travelling with my backpack across European cities and little known towns and then heading to South East Asia. Returning with a passion for life and adventure and of course my love of tea. My aim upon returning was to start a new high street trend and love affair with the good old cuppa. All I needed was a shop and a good quality loose leaf teas and we would be well away. But things are always simpler in our minds and it would take a good deal more planning. So Rudyards sprung into its existence.

We spent many hours deciding and trying different teas and blends to find the right supplier who were passionate as I to bring quality tea to the public. I still spend hours each month trying to find our next tea, we hope that one day we will have 100 different teas available for sale at our shop. Hopefully becoming the largest independent tea shop and loose leaf tea specialist in Nottingham. So far we now have over 30 teas available!

We at Rudyards are passionate about Tea and strive for the very best when selecting the leaves, we use. Each tea se serve by the pot has a recommended steeping time for 3 to 5 minutes to get the best out of your drink
