South Lakes duo brew up a rosy new business opportunity
Updated 4:05pm Monday 3rd February 2014 in News
TWO South Lakeland entrepreneurs are hoping to see a successful future in their tea leaves.
Andrew Tomkinson and John Pearce have founded the new online luxury tea company Penningtons of Cumbria.
The firm, based in Backbarrow, sells a range of loose-leaf teas such as the exotically-named Dragon Eye, Jasmine Silver Needle and Pinhead Gunpowder varieties.
Mr Tomkinson said: “We decided tea would make a great business because we are a nation of tea drinkers in the UK — it’s what makes us tick. Our mission now is to provide the finest tea to everyone in Cumbria and beyond.”
