Since the beginning of Postcard Teas in 2005 it has always been important for us to have a physical space where customers can try teas and learn more about them and their preparation. Our shop at 9 Dering Street in Mayfair is primarily a retail space for tea and ceramics but doubles up as a small tasting room. At our communal table you can try most of our teas for £3 a serving, prepared individually and traditionally in a gaiwan, shiboridashi or yixing pot, and brewed over multiple infusions. Some of our Tea Master teas can be tried at cost price for between £6-24 and brewed for as many infusions as possible. If you end up buying the tea you try then the tasting is on the house!
As well as buying tea to take away we also have a small list of teas which can be sent as postcards from our shop. Just pick a postcard from our shelf and write out a message and address and we will fill it with 50g of tea, seal it and send it to any location in the world.
