Brown paper package of delight

I originally tasted this tea in a pub in Padstow. Wanting to bring something of my beautiful Cornish holiday home, I treated us to a pack of this.
Light and refreshing just what you need on a cold, rainy June morning, or a hot sunny July morning or a crisp November morning....get my drift.
Delicious on its own or with scones.

Great coffee, great service.

I was given a packet of Cornish Dark as a free sample. I immediately ordered more. It has massive depth of flavour with no bitterness aftertaste - very delicious so also ordered the Papua New Guinea coffee too which also lives up to expectations as described. I will buy from Tugboat again. Better than any coffee I’ve had before. Also excellent and very prompt service.


I love my Lapsang and this batch is heavenly.
I realized I was nearly out and ordered some straight away .It was here next Day Absolutely Superb.

Couldn’t resist stocking up

Just had to get another packet ready in the cupboard as this tea has become a favourite.

Wake up refreshed

Every morning for the last four years i’ve had Blue Lady tea with my breakfast. Its refreshing citrussy tang gives me a wide awake feeling in the morning. Can’t do without my Blue Lady fix!

Vanilla smiles

This french vanilla coffee is smooth and it makes me smile inside. Although I would prefer a slightly darker roasted bean. Fabulous aromas and a very tasty coffee to drink anytime of the day.

A wonderful basic

We've been buying this for years, and it makes a wonderful cup of tea at any time of the day. Very affordable, but gives the impression that you've got something rather special.


Fantastic Coffee Beans Love um to the people whos thinking of trying Cornish Gold Coffee
you be Dissappointed
and a fantastic service from Tugboat thank you


I bought this product for my father and he absolutely loves it, he said it is full of flavour. We will definitely order from here again :)


Only had one cup up to now and very satisfied

Pinhead Gunpowder

can't drink supermarket Green Tea since first getting this from the shop in truro. quick online delivery, and really helpful if you go in the shop.



Very refreshing when chilled, slightly bitter added some honey, delicious

A nice roasted rice flavour, and the green tea is not too bitter.

Awesome tea

I have been waiting all winter for this one to be released again. This one is as good as the Vanilla Rooibos, but with a summer twist!

Italian Roast

Better than High St alternatives and the service is always first class. Free samples introduce us to new tastes so thank you for that too.

Great selection!

Such a great idea to sample different summer teas and amazing flavours as always!

Amaretto Flavoured Coffee
Terrific coffee

I was very impressed with the coffees and the service I received from Tugboat. Both were TOP NOTCH - as I travel to Cornwall a lot I shall try to pop in their shop. I’m looking forward to it.

Our favourite coffee🙂

Truro is very fortunate to have such a great coffee (and tea!) outlet. Tugboat is a true gem, Mike and Jess offer great knowledge and a personal touch.


Tried this tea at the Godrevy cafe whilst away ,it’s fantastic ,on returning home shared the joy ,it’s smell and colour is amazing and the taste puts it so above any other fruit tea I’ve tasted.

Lovely Coffee

Excellent coffee - lovely delicate flavour. Order arrived the next day - great service and thank you for the extra little sample.

Good flavour

Fruity and powerful and enjoyable. One of our regulars 👍

Strong decaffeinated tea

I've tried lots of different brands of decaffeinated tea and I've never been entirely satisfied, mainly because I would rather drink caffeinated tea but it doesn't agree with me!). Ceylon Fannings is the best I've tried so far, I discovered it when visiting the Newlyn Gallery in Cornwall. And the best thing about it is that it's got taste and I can make it really strong! Shall definitely be ordered some more.

Did not disappoint

A beautiful tea, the rose flavour was just what I hoped for- not too dominant but delicate and aromatic.

Great coffee

I could happily drink this one every day, morning or afternoon. Smooth, not too dark or strong... just right.
Very happy with Tugboat service and quick delivery too!
