Nambarrie Tea

Did readers know that Nambarrie Tea is owned by Twinings? I was unaware of this myself.

Nambarrie is the brand name of a tea company based in Belfast, owned by Twinings.

On 10 April 2008 Nambarrie announced its plans to close its factory in Belfast. The factory is now closed and production currently takes place in England.

Founded in 1860, the company began trading in York Street, originally as 'Pratt and Montgomery'. However, during wartime bombing in 1941, the company's premises in Tomb Street were completely destroyed, reportedly leaving only a horse drawn delivery van intact.

Nambarrie Tea Co. Ltd. now operates delivery depots in Mallusk, County Antrim, and Glasgow, being the third biggest brand in Scotland.
