Northern Tea Merchants on Chatsworth Road


This unique award winning establishment offers some of the world's finest teas and coffees to drink or buy along with excellent home made meals and an eye catching range of tea and coffee related gifts.

The UK Tea Council invited the Northern Tea Merchants to join their standards of excellence scheme which is only for those that are of high quality. They became members from early back in 1997 and it was the owners desire to pass on their passion for tea that has driven the family to extensively refurbish the shop on Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield, with the introduction of a range of light meals and tasty lunches to complement the vast range of excellent quality teas and coffees already sold. There is even a set of pairings of tea and food offered that have been devised by the Tea Council and the Academy Of Food and Wine where the tea complements the food served!

Northern Tea Merchant's menu of beverages spans over 60 pages and is also an insight into the history of tea, its countries of origin, its flavour and the best way to brew the marvellous leaf. This has earned them FOUR Awards of Excellence from The UK Tea Council's Tea Guild in the last 4 years.

The first thing that you experience when you enter this emporium of taste is the heady aroma of tea and coffee. Then, whilst your olfactory nerves are still reeling from the delicious smells, your eyes take in the beautifully lit, classically presented layout of the shop. The shelves on the left-hand side offer teas from all over the world, beautifully packed in the distinctive gold packaging that Northern Tea Merchants use. There is, to the centre of the shop, a series of large bins that contain some of the world's finest freshly roasted coffees, which can be purchased as beans, or ground for no extra charge. A series of wonderful circular tables graces the right hand side of the shop, whose glass tops cover samples of 36 different teas and coffees from the enormous range supplied.

Whilst you sit with your chosen drink, your eyes wander around the walls which are covered with historic quotations about tea and coffee and fascinating insights into the way that tea and coffee has been marketed throughout the last century. Tastefully lit display cabinets contain many interesting tea and coffee related items that are ideal for the ardent drinker or make wonderful and individual gifts.

The staff have all been trained in the products they sell and posses many interesting insights into particular ways of brewing your chosen beverage.

The range of teas and coffees is often updated and changed after trips to origin by the owner, ensuring that the quality is always right up to the mark!

We have been awarded Margaret Thornby's Access for All award for the sympathetic layout of our shop and café, we have been awarded the Tea Guild's award of excellence 4 times on the trot, and we have recently received a 'Highly Commended' award for Customer Service from The Derbyshire Times Group of Newspapers. We are also a 5 star food establishment in the 'Scores on the Doors' scheme.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

We have a large car park at the rear of our premises, which is free for all customers.

Leave the M1 Motorway at Junction 29. Take the signs marked Chesterfield A617 (A dual Carriageway of about 3-4 miles).

Once at the roundabout at the bottom of the A617, follow the signs for the A619 (Baslow). Take the third exit from this roundabout, and then the first exit from the next roundabout. Keep following the signs for the A619, you pass the police station on your right, go through a set of traffic lights, and on to a very short dual carriageway. At the roundabout at the end of this, take the second exit past Wickes DIY Centre. Carry on (in the left hand lane), and this brings you on to Chatsworth Road. We are on the right hand side, No 193 with a dark green shop front.

Accessible by Public Transport: Chesterfield station is 2 miles away.
