IN THE CAFE:

COMINS TEA HOUSE

Comins Tea House is an independent tea company based in Sturminster Newton North Dorset.  Set up and run by Rob & Michelle Comins we personally source all of our fine single estate teas and work with British Designers to produce our own range of teaware.  Tea is steeped in history, tradition and ceremony which we believe greatly add to the flavour and enjoyment of each cup.  At the Tea House we pay respect to the origins of our teas and prepare them in a way that makes the most of their fantastic natural flavours.  We aim to keep it simple and not make it stuffy encouraging our customers to take time over the ceremony of tea and offering advice on brewing and storage.   

At Eat Dorset we will be sampling, serving and selling our fine teas.  Interested in trying new teas but not sure where to start?  Either Rob or Michelle will be available throughout the weekend to offer advice and infuse any tea you would like to try.
