Why not try a nice cup of tea – it’s National Tea Day today!

Did you know that drinking tea lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol?

And evidence of long-term health benefits is emerging, too: for example, consuming about half a cup of green tea a day seems to lower the risk of developing depression and dementia. 

Tea also brings people together, keeping us connected by sharing a cup of tea with friends or family to talk about whatever’s on your mind and with so many flavours to choose from what’s not to like!

We’d love for you all to join us for a cup of tea today and post and share using the hashtag #NationalTeaDay and maybe even a biscuit, or two!

Price Increases

David and I are very sorry to have to finally give in. Given current conditions in the industry we’ve had to increase our prices with immediate effect.

Over recent months our sector has been hit with multiple and significant price increases in our raw materials. We’ve had at least three price increases of between 7% & 8% each time. Furthermore, suppliers are planning to increase the cost of corrugated board even further. This is due to an acute shortage of paper and board, with paper mills struggling to keep pace with demand and the upsurge in online trading during the lock-down.

The situation has been widely reported on and does not seem set to improve significantly any time soon.

By planning ahead and making arrangements with our suppliers we have managed to mitigate the impact on availability and lead-times, and have pretty much traded as usual, with only slight delays in most cases.

Until now we have held our prices and tried to absorb the impact. Unfortunately, this cannot continue.

We thank you for your understanding and for your very valued business.

David and Bernadette
