Survive Your 1st Year in Business and HRH Prince Charles May End up at Your Birthday Party!

Jul 18, 2013, 06:54 ET from Bluebird Tea Co.

BRIGHTON, England, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

We've had an incredible year, turning our spark of a business idea into a successful Start Up chosen to represent the nation's young entrepreneurs to HRH Prince Charles.

We started with a bedroom full of tea and have grown a profit-making online and events-based Tea Mixology Company in just a year.

There was no better way to celebrate the occasion than by being invited by Somewhereto_ to showcase our business on behalf of young entrepreneurs everywhere as part of the Big Connect event in London.

Alongside some of the biggest players in the industry, Waitrose, M&S and more, we were flying the flag for independent businesses and HRH loved our concept and teas.

Our founder Mike Turner, 25, offered him our sell-out Rhubarb + Custard tea which he loved and they chatted about his tastes in tea.

He then chose a further three teas to smell (Mowgli's Fire Chai, Ankara Apple + Coffee Pu'erh) and asked if he could take some with him!

He also left with a promise to come and open our first high-street store in the near future!

More information about Bluebird Tea Co.:

The name Bluebird was derived from the skiing term 'Bluebird Day' which is a day with perfect blue skies and fresh powder snow. It encompasses both your perfect day and the way that you feel during that day.

Krisi and Mike returned from Canada in the summer of 2012 (where they had gone to escape the rat race to become ski bums) to set up Bluebird Tea Co.

Since then they have worked incredibly hard to build the company from scratch, completely with their own four hands. From innovative blend ideas and building websites to sifting through accounts and stamping every bag of tea, Krisi and Mike are proud to have achieved so much with a little common sense and a lot of passion and hard work.

With the Bluebird ethos running through their business and themselves they continue to strive to spread happiness through fun and unique tea mixology.
