Tea from the Manor was delighted to be invited by the ISS Hospitality Chefs to exhibit our famous tea pod at the recent ISS Expo. The event was a showcase of suppliers supporting ISS, one of the worlds largest corporate catering companies and had over 1000 visitors. This trade only show was attended by ISS staff and their high profile clients such as O2, Barclays, Hewlett Packard and Charles Russell, to name but a few.
James Green set up the tea pod as part of the Chefs' market street and decorated the area with Tea from the Manors' trademark period accessories and artefacts - samovars, trunks and all manner of tea paraphernalia!
On show too, of course, were our fine range of quality loose leaf teas and silk tea bags alongside our popular "every day" tea bags, perfect for the catering industry. We also ran a competition to win a visit from the tea pod for afternoon tea with a simple but charming "guess the weight of the giant scones".
We also took the opportunity to gauge opinions on our plans for new packaging for our range of teas. The new packs will feature full colour printing in keeping with the classic styling of our brand. Everyone loved them so watch this space!
“To be given the opportunity to participate in such a high profile show alongside the ISS chefs was a genuine privilege and to receive such a positive response from visitors and the Senior management team at ISS was a real thrill. The Chef's were clamouring to have our teas at the ISS sites around the country!”
