Details

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!
