Our Partners

Black Swan Data’s mission is to enable companies to be more decisive, act at speed and get to market first. We achieve this by scientifically predicting consumers’ future needs, wants and desires through the application of AI to the world’s largest record of actual thought and behaviour – the internet.

Our proprietary tools allow us to surface emerging trends and predict changes in consumers earlier and more accurately than anyone else. We combine this intelligence with deep industry expertise to provide products and services that answer strategic marketing questions and deliver better business outcomes.

Founded in 2011, we employ over 250 ‘Swans’ worldwide in offices from London, New York, Los Angeles, Cape Town and Budapest. We were recently recognised as one of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies by the FT and work with pioneering brands from clients including PepsiCo, Unilever, Mondelez, McDonald’s and Google.

Celebration is at the heart of everything we do at English Tea Shop.

We celebrate the world we live in by putting sustainability at the core of all activities as well as only using 100% organic ingredients. We celebrate our 400 tea-loving employees with empowering training programmes and a warm, welcoming workplace that feels like a second home. Our small-scale farmers benefit from incentives to grow organic produce, a generous premium on top of fair-trade prices, and initiatives that enhance the wellbeing of their families and communities. And finally, we celebrate tea in all its flavourful glory. Honouring tea traditions from England to Sri Lanka and beyond, we’ve crafted a delicious and, at times, surprising selection of teas. So, you get to enjoy all the regular favourites as well as explore the exciting new blends that make up our Gifting, Wellness and Super ranges.

For tea lovers, all of this guarantees excellence in everything we do; from sourcing the finest fresh organic ingredients, to our expert employees in Colombo, Sri Lanka and the beautifully packaged tea on your kitchen shelf. Our dedicated designers deserve special mention for the exuberant packaging that shares the joy we take in every step of the tea journey – from planting to pouring. An explosion of colours celebrates the rich, diverse flavours and aromas given to us to enjoy by Mother Nature.

The English Tea Shop was set up in 2010 with a passionate belief in doing things differently by putting
people and purpose before profit. Our mantra of ‘celebrating communities from farm to cup’ has acted as a guiding star on the road to success in over 55 markets worldwide. Our growth proves our heart-felt belief that ethical, sustainable businesses can be successful and profitable. We care about enriching the lives of everyone involved from farm to cup; from planters to pickers, processors and packers, to you preparing your favourite cup of tea in the comfort of your own home. All of these wonderful people make up your tea loving community.

We are continually improving how we do things and aim to become the world’s leading independent organic tea company with its own sustainability model. By 2021 we want to be sending twice as much tea around the world and 2025 will see us achieve our green goals of all packaging being 100% biodegradable and sending zero waste to landfill. Join the celebration of uplifting blends that do good, crafted with care by tea lovers like you. Your Tea Loving Community.
