About Us

At Harp & Lyre® we are passionate about serving only the finest quality leaf teas. We are a family-owned company with three generations of tea heritage. We are personally involved in every aspect of tea selection – from visiting tea estates to working with Master Tea Tasters to create our exclusive blends.

Great Britain is known as a nation of tea drinkers with a longstanding tradition of enjoying high quality leaf tea. However, over the past few decades, the quality of the tea available in Britain has declined and with it the tradition of drinking high quality leaf tea. We would love to revive this tradition and bring back a sense of occasion to the drinking of fine tea with family and friends.

Tea tasting is a truly refined art, a craft that takes years to perfect. Our Master Tea Tasters use their artistic skills to create our luxury blends. The selection of a highly prized tea is akin to an artist painting an exquisite picture or a talented musician composing beautiful music. Our tea and packaging are inspired by this connection with the artisan.

Our name Harp & Lyre® originates from a song of King David found in the Book of Psalms (Ps. 92 v 1-3) ‘It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.’

Harp & Lyre® is an accredited supplier of The Guild of Fine Food, UK and a member of Taste North East, UK. We are also North East England ‘Ambassadors’ helping to promote and encourage businesses in our region. ‘Passionate about tea’ is part of the North East England ‘Passionate People Passionate Places’ campaign.
