Jules Quinn (The *TeaShed) - 2012 Finalist
Entrepreneur: Jules Quinn
Business: The *TeaShed
The *TeaShed is a design-led tea and teaware company, born and brewed in Britain. Based in Gateshead, they sell their delicious teas and other tea-related products in over 80 stockists across the UK and also in Switzerland, Ireland, Oman, Kuwait and Dubai. The *TeaShed will also be launched nationwide in 23 John Lewis stores this Autumn. They only use quality whole leaf tea, which they import from Sri Lanka. This tea is then held inside a silky pyramid teabag - a style of teabag growing increasingly in popularity due to the fantastic quality of tea.

To stand out, The *TeaShed packages 20 of these delicious teabags inside a paper cup, so rather than a box, which you would just throw away, you have a cup to use and then recycle!
