The Rosevear Tea brand has been created by Isabelle and Adam Rosevear. Their new brand of tea can be tasted and bought in their Edinburgh tea shops at 100 Bruntsfield Place (0131 261 9854) and 71 Broughton St (0131 558 2530). Isabelle is from the French island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean and Adam’s roots are in Cornwall.
We are both passionate about tea. From the time we were students in Edinburgh, we have always liked a good cup of tea. We have visited and lived in countries like Russia and Azerbaijan where tea is the ultimate symbol of hospitality. Yet it is drunk in different ways each time, whether with a slice of lemon in Russia, through a cube of sugar tucked between your lips, or with mint… each way being as pleasant as the other and connecting people around this warming beverage.
While living in Paris for 5 years we discovered the vast world of tea possibilities in the many tea boutiques of the French capital. The French tea market has been transformed over the last 20 years.
On returning to Edinburgh, we missed the variety of quality loose teas. We felt we could bring something to our community by offering the opportunity to share our passion.
