The East India Company
Founded by Royal Charter in 1600 by Queen Elizabeth I, The East India Company introduced tea to Britain. Today, The Company's fine teas reflect Jonathan Swift's famous remark; “Tea is water bewitched” The London Tea Auction was a grand tradition that lasted 300 years. From the very first sale in 1679, to the last on 29 June 1998, it was a regular event that made London the centre of the international tea trade. The first auctions were held by The East India Company, which controlled the monopoly for the import of tea and other goods from the Indies. The auctions were held at “East India House” - the company's headquarters on Leadenhall Street, London. Tea was sold “by the candle”- wherein a candle was lit at the beginning of the sale of each lot. Upon an inch of the candle having burnt away, the hammer fell and the sale was ended, thereby ensuring the bidding didn't go on for an unlimited time. Records show, the best teas were kept for The Company's Directors and Shareholders, a sign of outstanding quality and taste.
The East India Company are proud to be part of the Ethical Tea Partnership
