The tale of our tea :
Wilfred Dickinson - a traditional 'Cumbrian marra' (a friendly term used to describe a local, or simply meaning 'mate') - didn't have much when he passed away. One of the few sentimental items he left was an old tea pot that he won as a boy, whilst racing pigeons. He told his daughter, Mark's mother, that one day the tea pot 'would be worth something' (true story!)...
A note left inside the tea pot reads: "Won with pigeons, 1937, don't break."
Following a career in the Armed Forces, Wilfred's grandson Mark - also a 'marra' - settled in his native county of Cumbria...a place he calls home and a place he loves. He also really loves tea... mmm... lovely tea!
During his time spent working around the world, Mark - inspired by his grandfather's story of the tea pot and believing it to be a 'sign' - dreamed of creating a tea that the great Cumbrian people would be proud to call their own... a tea to share with the world. This became more than Mark's dream; it became his vision!
