About Finest English Tea
FINEST ENGLISH TEA
Founders Ian and Lisa Geddes have always been passionate about tea. Ian, a British transplant to the West Coast some 30 years ago began bringing his favorite brand with him when he emigrated. Personal stocks were replenished during holidays and from care packages sent from home. To this day, the Geddes’ always maintain a fresh stock, and visitors to their household are still greeted with a piping hot cup of Ringtons, and over the years their blends have been greeted with much acclaim.
It was during the annual sortie to the Ringtons headquarters in Newcastle, England to refill the personal caddy that opportunity arose by way of a chance meeting with Managing Director, Simon Smith, to share the iconic Ringtons brand with discerning American tea drinkers.
This opportunity, coupled with ambition and passion, led to the forming of our company, “Finest English Tea, Inc.” After almost a year of fine-tuning the import side to comply with strict Federal standards, Ringtons Premium Teas are now available, through us, and this website.
Ringtons are not your average company, and their tea is not merely average either. Their attention to every detail from selection to blending to tasting to packaging is superlative, and it results in an exceptional, top-shelf, gourmet product.
So relax and enjoy a cup of exceptional, refreshing, and typically British tea.
