Hi, I'm Genna and Penny Drinks Tea is my baby.

The original plan was for Penny's to be an online shop where I could sell my hand-painted mugs. I never even got to listing one item! After 6 years as a web developer, I decided it was my time to travel and have some adventures. I quit my job and set off, backpack on. So Penny Drinks Tea started life as a travel blog for family and friends. The blog still exists and you can read about my mishaps and adventures, maybe whilst enjoying some tea and biscuits.

The dream is to turn Penny Drinks Tea into an online tea shop, helping brighten people's day by sending them a lovely box of treats. I'm currently working very hard on nurturing my little seedling in the hope it turns into something beautiful. Please consider supporting me by treating yourself to something lovely from Penny's Tea Shop.

Our mission is to find local, handmade and special items to wrap up and send out, ready to surprise you. We look far and wide to find chocolates, teas, coffees, biscuits and books so that you can try something new and exciting. We want you to be delighted with your order!

As well as Penny's, my passions include snowboarding, scuba diving, baking, drinking tea, photography, eating, starting craft projects I never manage to finish and getting lost in a good book.
