Sir John Lyon House Tea plaque

3rd Plaque at Sir John Lyon House

24th September 2020

- The 3rd plaque, sponsored by Tata Consumer Products, has been erected at Sir John Lyon House in London EC4V 3PA - sadly due to Coronavirus a plaque ceremony could not take place.  Tata Consumer Products are best known in the UK for Tetley tea.

The tea trade shifted to this building in 1970 after the tea auctions moved out of Plantation House.

Sir John Lyon House was the head quarters of the global tea industry for several years.  Sir John Lyon House was synonymous with the tea trade who still have their links with this institution of a building till this day.  Our third plaque commemorates the tea trade over 350 years. The tea trade operated  in these streets for this period. Many old tea timers visit the area.

We thank Tata for their kind sponsorship towards this plaque - click here for website .
