The Tea History Collection is a non-profit organisation and our aim is to preserve the history of tea for future generations.
All items are stored in a purpose built room and in excellent conditions which are temperature controlled. 
We welcome donations of important historical tea items. Any monies donated will go towards purchase of important items for the collection.
If you wish to donate please contact Denys Shortt with details at
A huge thank you to our major donors - detailed on the menu bar.
