Travelling  for Tea

Latest Post
An Introduction

We are a nomadic FIRE-planning tea-selling British-American couple who travel slowly, eat eagerly and think about tea (and horses) perhaps too much.


We started travelling in 2014, setting out from London. We spent two years in Madrid, Spain before deciding to travel permanently from 2016 as "digital nomads". As of March 2020 we have been location independent for 4 years. As system find this a little complex our base has remained the UK for this period travelling across 30 unique countries, primarily in East Asia and Western/Central Europe. Notably, this included a year in Kerala, India; 6 months in the Gers, France; and 5 months in Penang, Malaysia.

Now, we are ending our travels, at least for now, to settle in Portugal (read more here). We landed one day before the COVID19 lockdowns in Portugal and the EU began, so this country move is certainly different to what we imagined. We hope everyone is safe and secure at this troubling time.

We hit 50 countries in 2020 which is fun, and so this blog is a mix of our travel writing and photography, across many of these, with no particular theme although of course, some posts on tea.


If you're a tea lover, visit our online tea shop - Superfood Teas for Focus and Peace: green, rooibos and herbal teas that we've discovered in our travels. Scroll a little more for an intro to our tea shop.
