Tea smuggling passed into local West Country folklore arrayed in a cloak of romance and respectability. Tea was drunk by nearly everyone in the late 1600’s & most of the 1770’s. When Kings & Noblemen introduced unfair heavy taxes, many people from all walks of life turned to smuggling to receive their supply of tea. The rugged coastline around the South West has a notorious history of smuggling. Because of its inaccessible coastline, remote beaches and craggy cliffs, many colourful stories abound of daring smuggling runs.

The tradition of ‘Tea Dunking’ requires a level of skill and technique which only a few will ever truly master! Also the combination of the opposing forces of tea & biscuit, liquid & solid, Ying & Yang requires nothing but expert handling to ensure these already delightful treats come together to create one undeniably luscious mouthful.
