The West Highland Tea Company
was founded in Mallaig, a small fishing village in the Highlands of Scotland, by Rachael Robertson in April 2020. Rachael grew up admiring the many different types and flavours of tea and often frequented Asian countries during her travels which helped to further her excitement for tea.
As we grow and expand, the West Highland Tea Company intends to showcase the wonderful variety of different teas from fruit teas, herbal teas, spice teas, black teas, green teas, and more, whilst also being able to celebrate the Highlands of Scotland. This is why we create our very own Specialty Tea Blends. Our special teas are all hand-blended here in Mallaig in order to give you unique products with great taste, made from high-quality ingredients.
