Brand History:
Typhoo Tea
England 

Launched in 1903 by Birmingham, England, grocer John Sumner, Typhoo has been waking tea drinkers for nearly 100 years. Today, Typhoo is one of world's favorite teas.

Raised in a grocery business family, Sumner, was born on February 26, 1856 in Birmingham. At the turn of the 20th century, the business had extensive stock of wine and spirits, a stout and cider bottling brand and a grocery side. Sumner successfully ran the business for years but sought a specialty product to develop.

He found the answer when his sister, who suffered from indigestion, tried a special tea made from tiny particles, not the large leaf variety that was common. Sumner decided that, instead of selling the tea loose over the counter, he would packet the tea under a brand name. He settled on Typhoo Tipps. Typhoo meaning, in part, the Chinese word for doctor. The double p in Tipps was originally a printing error but remained misspelled on the packets of tea for years.

Typhoo was the first brand of tea to be sold pre-packaged rather than loose over the counter. In order to encourage his customers to purchase the tea, Sumner gave away a jar of cream to each person that bought a pound packet. The tea quickly became popular and customers were becoming loyal to the brand that, even though a little more expensive, went further and had digestive qualities.

Word of mouth recommendation from his customers led beyond his regular clientele and soon other grocers were asking to purchase the Ty.phoo tea, inspiring a wholesale business.

In 1905, Sumner closed the grocery business to focus on the tea. On July 29, 1905 , Typhoo Tea Ltd was incorporated. Sumner drew attention to tea made from the edge of the leaf. This pure-edge leaf tea produced 80 more cups to the pound than ordinary tea and also cut out the stalk that contained tannin and caused indigestion.

As early as 1906 Sumner sold Typhoo branded teapots to customers. He also inserted circulars into the tea packets to highlight its benefits, and included picture cards on a range of subjects, which became very collectible. By the mid 1960s, Ty.phoo was annually packing more than 80 million pounds of tea and exporting to 40 countries worldwide.

In the late 1960s, the company merged with Schweppes, the famous soft drinks firm, and formed a new company called Typhoo Schweppes. A year later, Cadbury's also joined the conglomeration, creating Cadbury Schweppes Typhoo.

In 1986 Typhoo was sold and the new company called Premier Brands. Premier continued to expand its tea operation by acquiring the herbal tea market leader, London Herb & Spice.

In 1989 Premier Brands was bought by Hillsdown Holdings and then in 1999 by Hicks Muse Tate and Furst. Further product developments were seen in 1999 when Typhoo became the first tea brand to introduce a green tea blend to the UK market and, in 2004, with the launch of Typhoo Fruit and Herb.

    My Morning Must-Have

    Posted by CCfromMS on Mar 26th 2018

    I have never been much of a coffee drinker, but I have always enjoyed a hot cup of tea in the morning. The discovery of British tea was life-changing--the depth of flavor puts grocery teas to shame--and my favorite by far is Typhoo. It tastes both smooth and robust, exactly what tea should be. (A little slice of ginger doesn't hurt, either.) Teadog's prices and specials are so exceptional that I have been known to buy a year's supply at a time! Now my daughter is hooked, too! We cannot do without our Typhoo breakfast cuppa.

    I've enjoyed Typhoo Tea for several years. My order was slow to come because of a mix up in the shipping which was handled very nicely by you and I'm very grateful.

    Posted by Gilbert & Barbara Beeson on May 11th 2017

    We have been ordering Typhoo Tea from Teadog.com for many years since we returned to the states after a military tour in England. Don't know what we would do without Teadog and our cups of Typhoo.

    Typhoo Tea

    Posted by SLR on Sep 28th 2016

    I would recommend tea dog.com to everyone! I have ordered tea at least four times. Had a minor issue a few years ago in that an error had been made on my order. Tea dog rectified the error immediately and apologized as well.

    I recently ordered more tea and due to a stocking issue I received a partial order but the rest of my order came promptly and added a box of their scone mix. Great integrity and A plus customer satisfaction!
    ( oops ! spelling correction made. )

    Worth the wait

    Posted by Jeanne Marhsall on Apr 26th 2016

    I have been drinking Typhoo for many years now. Its a tea that lends itself well to the honey and cream I add...holding up with a strong not bitter flavor.
    Tea Dog is prompt in delivery so its always worth the wait.

    Simple tea for simple folks (like me)

    Posted by jplsu on Apr 11th 2014

    To me, Typhoo suggests comfort, and a good start to the day. On my last visit to the UK my breakfast began with lots of strong, milky tea of this sort. This is a style of dark black tea similar to Irish Breakfast. Subtler flavors are for later in the day; I need my Typhoo in the morning!
