According to the UK Tea & Infusions Association, around 100 million cups of tea are consumed every day, with 84% of the UK population drinking tea every day. Per capita, the UK is the third-largest tea drinking nation in the entire world, behind Turkey and the Republic of Ireland. Although 98% of Brits apparently take their tea with milk, we’ve got a huge range of options for all tea lovers, including fruit and herbal infusions. Plus, 100% of our tea is Fairtrade.
Did you know, tea is the world’s second most popular drink next to water, so it’s a pretty big deal all around the world. For 40 years, we’ve worked with one single expert supplier to responsibly source the best-tasting and best-quality tea. Our supplier sources from tea gardens in the best-known tea growing countries on our behalf, then blends the teas for our stores and M&S Café ranges.
Tea is hugely important to M&S: we sell the equivalent of 400 million cups of it each year, from our Remarksable Value everyday tea to award-winning luxury gold blend and single-origin teabags. Our tea is always 100% Fairtrade, hand-picked by growers who only choose the top two, youngest leaves and a bud for superior flavour and fragrance, then foil-packed for freshness. We are so proud of our luxury gold tea that it’s used in our lemon and peach iced tea soft drinks and served every day in all M&S Cafés.
From our luxury gold teabags vacuum-packed at source to keep the freshness and preserve the naturally sweet flavour, to our shortbread tea which gives you all the flavour of a biscuit with none of the crumbs, at M&S, we love a good cuppa.

Whatever you fancy, our specialist team makes sure you’re getting the very best flavour in every cup, every time. All our beans, ground coffee, bags and pods are Fairtrade, arabica and premium-grade. Between professional tasters at origin and in the UK, coffee for M&S products is taste-checked for quality at least five times.
We offer a range of blends from light to dark roasts, so you can choose your favourite flavour profile. Our speciality-grade, single-origin coffee is sourced by our specialist coffee buyers from the world’s best coffee-growing regions, then quality-graded for a superior taste.
