Have you ever wondered how the tea in your everyday cuppa gets from the tea estate to your cup?
Can you tell a Darjeeling from a Ceylon or an Oolong from a White? Come and find out what tea is, how and where it grows in the world and why all teas are so different. Let us take your senses on a journey through the manufacture of different types of tea whilst we explain the differences between loose and tea bag varieties. We’ll get you tasting and hope to tempt you to explore a wider selection of teas whilst having fun!
Thursday 7th March. 7pm
Tickets: £3 (proceeds going to charity) Booking Essential. Call 01531 670082 or call into the Tea Room.
At this year’s Flavours of Herefordshire awards ceremony held at Lyde Court, Hereford on Saturday 2nd February 2013 we were presented with the award for ‘Herefordshire Food and Drink Prodigy’, given to the newest up and coming business and entrant into the awards. Judges were greatly “impressed by our involvement within the community.”
The awards were presented by Herefordshire’s newest resident, the TV presenter Jules Hudson (Escape to the Country and Countryfile). The show was compered by Mark Edwards from Sunshine Radio.
The team is absolutely thrilled to have been presented with this award, we have achieved so much in the last year and receiving recognition for this is more than we could ever have expected. It has been a lot of hard work, but great fun and we couldn’t have achieved so much without the support of our fantastic local suppliers and loyal customer base.
Browse our lovely selection of hand made gifts, or come and start a fun hobby and make your own!

In celebration of the Ledbury Poetry Festival ‘Artisans on Tour’ pause in our gallery for only FOUR days from Friday 29th June to Monday 2nd July.
The Artisans are an independent group of talented British designer makers who passionately believe in making individual, high quality arts and crafts available to all.
Artistic inspiration comes from a variety of sources and is often from the written word; in this exhibition creative works are lovingly displayed alongside their artistic muse:
Elaine Mason’s Tree of Life bowl was born from the poetry of Kahlil Gibran whilst the humorous words of Edward Lear appear on Jo Verity’s exquisitely decoupaged picture frames. Rebecca Millikin’s ceramics reflect the poems and rhymes which inspire children from authors such as Lewis Carroll and A A Milne and, last but by no means least, there are beautiful, hand painted silk and wool scarves designed and made by…… Shelley!
NEWS JUST IN – The line up of Artisans has grown, to include: artistic blacksmith Gary Fullagar, artisan designer and maker of unique handmade handbags Elinor Fielder and pet portrait artist Beverley Courtney.
