Andrew Melrose, a key player in the development of the tea industry, founded the Melrose's tea company in 1812. Following the collapse of the East Indian Company's monopoly in 1833 he was the first merchant to land tea in Great Britain.
The Tea Clipper Isabella carried the shipment into Edinburgh in 1835, a historic moment which marked a change in the shape of the British trade forever. From its very beginning the Melrose's name has been synonymous with quality and we are proud to be able to guarantee the same high standards today as Andrew Melrose insisted upon almost 200 years ago.
