Some Trivia For You!
You can’t get much more British than the tea and coffee family business, Ringtons, based in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in the North East of England. Established in 1907, they have produced a wonderful set of accessories to accompany their tea leaf and coffee bean sales; from tea towels to pottery, biscuits (cookies) and chocolates! I love seeing the traditional Ringtons’ wicker baskets full of goodies arriving at the door step. You are never disappointed! Many of their wares are now highly collectible.
