I am a bit of a fan of peaberry coffees and this Tugboat offering is very nice, brewed in my Aeropress. I find it to be of a milder roast (no bitterness) with a slightly sweet flavour. For me, it is a lovely, everyday drinker.

A perfect morning cuppa.

My companion is the tea drinker in the house. The Tugboat English Breakfast has become her favourite morning and general purpose tea. Though it is not full leaf, the tea is not a powdery grind as so many basic teas tend to be. The flavour is, I am told, solid, not bitter, and very refreshing. Her other love from Tugboat is the Ceylon Orange Pekoe, which she describes as a perfect afternoon tea - lots of flavour. Both teas she drinks with a little milk.

Best Decaf I've had!

This coffee is amazing, I was given some as a gift and have just ordered 2 more! Best Decaf coffee I've found.

Pai Mu Tan
Favourite go to tea

I originally bought this tea as my first foray into white teas and I am so glad I did. Being able to rebrew the sames leaves multiple times is brilliant especially if you're sat work at a desk all day. Definitly get value for money. Highly recommend to my friends and family.

A great tea, particularly for summer

Rose Congou is refreshing and has a nice edge to it, and I recommend it. It works well as a cold or iced tea too. It has a delicate taste. But you can let it stew too (I sometimes put my teapot on my woodstove to keep it hot, and that works fine). If you happen to use other flavoured teas, it's worth brewing a pot of 'normal' tea (in my case, Keemun) in between, because the tastes of flavoured teas can neutralise each other (vanilla and rose congou cancel each other out, for example). Same applies to some cakes and biscuits. It works with milk and some plant milks. Sometimes I do a one-third Keemun and two-thirds Rose Congou brew. Let Rose Congou brew for at least five minutes. It's well worth trying.


Nice robust rich taste. Also not too oily, so works fine in my bean to cup machine, Top draw!!

Honduran coffee excellence

This coffee is brilliant, my favourited

Darjeeling Tea

It was delivered promptly and was well packed against damage in transit. I enjoy Tugboat teas and pleased to support a local supplier. I haven't yet started using this tea as I am finishing my last order. But I am enjoying the sample of Yunnan.

Travel cup

Brilliant, ticks all boxes


I love this tea. Tropical fruity flavours that you can actually taste! I don't usually go for green tea as I often find it can be bitter, but this has changed my mind. Will be ordering more!


My husband and I love this chai, it has a wonderful flavour and it’s great that it’s caffiene free as we like to enjoy a cup in the evenings. Quickly dispatched with a free sample of honeybush blossom which was also lovely! Thank you :)

Beautiful Tea

Have loved this tea for years now, gorgeous taste, good colour, glad I found it at your website.


These are lovely beans and make a rich coffee without any bitter aftertaste. Very nice x

Great Hot Chocolate

The hot chocolate with marshmallows has become an instant hit in our household and puts other supermarket items in the shade. A darker, richer drink with great depth of taste. The marshmallows are much appreciated also. Ordered a couple of tins before the first was even finished. Cannot recommend enough.

Excellent tea and excellent service

I have been buying tea from you for quite a few years now and have never found another leaf tea as good. My staples are Earl Grey and Orange Pekoe, I so look forward to my afternoon cuppa. Super quick mail order, thank you.

Smashing Brew

If you like a tasty pot of tea that ticks all the English Breakfast boxes, try this. It's refreshing, it's delicious, it's malty and if you prefer smaller leaves, it's easier to rinse out of the tea pot too! Lovely!!x

Great dark roast beans

I had a sample bag of these with a previous order and I am now hooked on them. I use them as part of a 50/50 blend with Peaberry (or whatever else I have).
Jess confirmed it is possible to have blend made to order, which means I don't have to break the seals on two or three bags to get the blend I require.
Great service and very quick delivery

Excellent product

Very fine mesh and a good closing mechanism makes these really good. Also received some free tea! Would thoroughly recommend.


Great taste & flavour right to the bottom, the syrup really comes out. Great service as ever from Jess.

Simply the best!

This coffee is delicious. Way above all the other decaffinated coffees out there. You wouldn’t;t think it was decaffinated and the service from this company is superb. Thank you Tugboat!

Excellent service and quality product

Mondo Novo

Great depth of flavour. My current favourite. Excellent service as always.

Lovely Tea and Great Service

We originally found Tugboat teas on our quest to reduce our plastic consumption - we wanted to move away from teabags when we realised that they contained plastic. We love the English Breakfast and Rooibos teas that you sell and 'normal' tea tastes rubbish now by comparison. We are saving up the bags that the tea comes in to either reuse at a zero waste store to save us carting plastic containers around. Also love the little samples that are included - helps to broaden our horizons a little and always a lovely surprise. Thanks for making tea buying a pleasure.

Love this coffee

Still prefer the Dark Cornish blend.

Tried it at a show loved it.

Bought this coffee online , no hassles, even got some chocolate covered beans. This is now my favourite coffee, will buy more.
