  • TetleyIn 1837, two brothers, Edwards and Joseph Tetley started to sell tea and became so famous that they set up as tea merchants. In 1856, in partnership with Joseph Ackland, they set up Joseph Tetley and Co., wholesale tea dealers. Tea was rationed during World War II, it was not until 1953, just after rationing finished, that Tetley launched the tea bag to the UK and it was an immediate success. The rest, as they say, is history. The Tetley Group was created in July 1995, when a group of investors bought what was then the world-wide beverage business from Allied Domecq.On 10th March 2000, The Tetley Group was sold to Tata Tea Limited, one of the worlds largest integrated tea businesses.After a long drawn out battle first with Schroder Ventures, followed by a bitter retreat in 1995, and then with Sara Lee, Tata tea finally tasted victory on March 10, 2000 when it bought Tetley for a staggering INR2,135 crore ( 305 million sterling)
