Beginning with some tea leaves, a few beans and an idea

Tugboat is a small independent tea and coffee business in Cornwall. Founded and run by Jess and Mike, you can find us in our shop in Truro, at various events as well as online.

The Shop

Either myself or Mike can usually be found at the shop in Truro where you can pop in and see our latest tea and coffee blends. As well as all the blending, grinding and bagging that goes on in our little shop, all of our online orders are packed up from there and then sprinted up to the post office at the end of the day.

The Coffee

We’ve teamed up with two coffee roasters to keep us supplied with our weekly roasts and we now have another, independent roaster involved to be able to offer a few, regular, changing single origins that are more limited in quantity. We create our ever expanding range of blends ourselves. 

The Tea

We blend and pack an ever growing range of seasonal and classic loose leaf teas and infusions and are seriously enthusiastic about creating exciting new teas. Whatever your mood, energy level or tea break demands, we reckon we have a tea that will be just right.
