Raising a cuppa to the Queen

Derek Miles with his letter from Buckingham Palace Derek Miles, Chairman at Miles Tea & Coffee was thrilled to have a letter delivered from Buckingham Palace this week. Tea and Coffee is a huge part of our British culture as is the Royal family. Derek contacted the Palace a number of weeks ago and it was an honor to receive a letter thanking him for congratulating Her Majesty on becoming the longest reigning British Monarch. Mr Henry Miles (Derek’s grandfather) established the Tea and Coffee company in 1888 during the reign of Britain’s previous longest reigning Monarch Queen Victoria.

Derek said ‘It was a lovely letter to receive from Her Majesty, after generations of experience in the industry it was nice to have such a letter from Buckingham Palace.’

Miles Tea and Coffee have an active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter as well as a comprehensive online shop.
