Delicious winter tea

I love this tea- it's gently spiced and is lovely and warming. I keep buying it in case I run out! It's definitely my favourite of this year's teas

Great product fast delivery

Found Tugboat brews at Dartmouth food festival, really friendly and helpful chap on the stand. My wife has had a cup of Ginger Spice tea most days. Ordered replacements for her and they arrived the next day, and with a cheeky sampler in the box. Thanks she will enjoy the teas and we will be back for more when the stocks are low.

Nice and warming

Really enjoyed this tea, to me it is a nice warming tea.

Full of autumnal fruitiness

This tea reminds me of brambles and berries and all that is good with late Summer and Autumn.

Red Chai

A personal favourite of all the Tugboat chais It delivers an intensive comforting, caffeine free, spicy hit.


I’ve been buying coffee off these guys for nearly 6 years I can’t find anywhere else that does a better coffee. I normally buy the java dark roast but this is really nice change. Superb coffee highly recommend to any coffee lover!

Wonderful coffee!

I bought this at a Christmas fair last year and loved it. The smell, the flavour, is just lovely. I was disappointed after Christmas that I could not get any more, so I was delighted to be able to order it online this year. Maybe worth keeping it as a Christmas treat?

Excellent for choice, quality, advice and delivery

I'm no expert, but Formosa Oolong has become my favourite brew. I placed my order on the website one afternoon and received it the following morning. I have shopped with Tugboat for years (since their days in Pannier Market) and wouldn't bother going anywhere else for my choice of teas. They know their product and offer a superbly professional and speedy service.

Turmeric Tonic
spicy goodness

One of my favourite teas, I drink it regularly in the late afternoon, often after a busy day, and find it intensely comforting and revitalising. The wonderful spicy flavour really hits the spot, and, as the health benefits of turmeric are well documented, you know it's doing you good as well.

A hug in a cup

Absolutely love this coffee - love the mellow taste - a great blend of flavours

Just perfect

Love everything about this flavour; its smell, its taste, its cost. Some teas are what I would split into morning or afternoon brews but this one you can have any time of the day. Haven't yet tried it cold but have tried re-heating it and unlike some brews it doesn't taste stewed that way. Can't recommend this highly enough.

Delicious taste

A lovely decaf tea to start the day. The only thing to say is that it is very fine and comes through my tea strainer very easily, but I don't mind.

Must be Tried

This is the first tea I have tasted that delivers what it says. An aromatic, soothing and relaxing drink with just the right amount of sweetness. A must to try.

In love

This roast is delicious, smooth and doesn't have an acidic after taste like some coffees! Will be repurchasing!


Very nice will order again

We absolutely love the Gingerbread Chai from Tugboat Brews and have almost run out of it already! Perfect caffeine free drink for autumnal evenings in front of the woodburner!

Bleddy ansum!

Bleddy ansum! Love it.


Ginger Spice is destined to become one of my favourite all-year-round flavoured teas. It's tasty and spicy with warming heat from the ginger pieces which don't overpower the tea base.. I make it fairly weak, brew for 4 minutes and add milk. Do try Ginger Spice if you like something a little different!

Darling Darjeeling....

Very compact and solid Darjeeling leaf tea.A must to any tea lovers collection of premium teas from Tugboat.


Brought these last year at an Xmas fair, this year I have brought several bags for Xmas gifts for friends and family because they were amazing!

Love the flavours!

Since moving to the UK, I have really struggled to find good flavoured coffee. I have tried multiple brands and finally found one that's perfect! I have tried every flavour from tugboat and am impressed with them all. Though if anyone finds the flavour is a bit too intense, I found the perfect blend is a 50/50 mix with an unflavoured roast.

Wonderful flavour

Never had this tea before but I enjoyed the flavour immensely- smooth but with a little kick nearer the bottom

Amazing Assam

As with the previous reviewer we always have a spare bag in the cupboard. This tea is so flavourful that whenever neighbours pop in for a cuppa they always say yea please if “have you any of that lovely loose tea”.

Cornish Tea

Thank you for my recent order. This is the second time we have ordered from you and we were not disappointed. The tea is lovely and I look forward to trying the sample I receive with my order. Thank you once again for my tea and prompt delivery.


I was introduced to this tea when visiting a friend in Cornwall and ordered some straight away. It’s light and refreshing unlike many flavoured tea I have tried. Will be ordering more.
