With funding by Tata Consumer Products, teapigs was launched in 2006 by self-confessed tea enthusiasts, Louise Cheadle and Nick Kilby. Their aim was to get the UK drinking better quality tea and introduce a brand that was more relevant to 21st century tea drinkers. The duo successfully launched their tea temples, essentially a roomy, biodegradable pyramid mesh bag containing high quality, whole leaf tea into the UK market.
