Virgin Atlantic to offer teapigs in its Upper Class and Clubhouse

teapigs, the premium tea company, is launching into Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class and Clubhouse.

The company was set up in 2006 by Nick and Louise, self-professed tea nuts on a mission to get people drinking real tea again. Louise has been a professional tea taster for over 20 years and has travelled the world sourcing all sorts of teas, as well as seeing first-hand what kind of tea is offered when passengers take to the skies.

“Having tried my fair share of disappointing cuppas while on flights, we’re really excited to be launching with Virgin to introduce some better brews to their passengers,” says Louise. “Virgin have been on our list to work with since day one and we can’t wait for our teas to really take off! Virgin Atlantic is taking steps to become greener – they’re investing in research, new technologies, and innovation to reduce their impact both up in the air and on the ground. As part of this, they were looking for more sustainable partners…and that’s where we come in! We’re a proud B Corp and our packs & tea temples are certified plastic free which is perfect for their pledge to reduce single-use plastic.”

teapigs offers a range of quality teas as well as promoting strong sustainability efforts which are what landed the company the deal with Virgin. From Spring 2022, those flying with Virgin will be able to enjoy teapigs’ mao feng green tea; lemon and ginger and peppermint and snooze.

teapigs only uses whole leaf teas, whole berries, whole herbs and flowers. The company’s teas come in tea “temples” – a plastic free mesh bag that gives the leaves lots of room to infuse. Loose tea – without the fuss, says the company.
