Richard Smith

Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Company

Established in 1982 on the return of the Smith family from India, the Kent & Sussex Tea and Coffee Company is in the heart of Kent near Pluckley.

For three generations the family has been involved in the tea trade which started when grandfather Robert Stammers went to India in the 1920’s.The company is run today by Mrs Janet Smith and her son Richard. They import and pack over 850 teas and coffees from all around the world.

The photograph shows Robert Stammers and his wife on their retirement from their Assam tea estate in 1958. Jempson’s are delighted to be able to list a very fine selection of these fabulous teas and coffees in our stores.
