The five-star Lowry Hotel has announced an exclusive collaboration with Denton based tea supplier, Tea from The Manor, to add to the hotel’s extensive list of local suppliers.

The partnership which follows the announcement of a long-term collaboration with Salford based gin distillery FOUR SIS4ERS, is a testament to The Lowry Hotel’s aim to use only locally sourced ingredients.

James Green, founder of Tea from The Manor, past career in the military gave him the inspiration to set up the company after being based in Hong Kong with the Ghurkha army. The exclusion of alcohol in the Ghurkha army led James to sample a vast amount of teas, which contributed to a long-term passion for tea brewing.

After leaving the military James’ interest in tea stayed and several years later Tea from the Manor was born. Tea from the Manor brings the finest full leaf teas from the best tea gardens around the world to delight the palates of its customers, which now includes ‘The Lowry’ blend tea.

The interesting history of the origin of the company sparked the interest of The Lowry Hotel’s General Manager Adrian Ellis, who after visiting the tea tasting room in Denton resulted in a flourishing collaboration between the two.

As well as Tea from the Manor introducing an exquisite range of teas into the River Bar and Restaurant to compliment the bespoke range of limited-edition afternoon teas, The Lowry Hotel and Tea from The Manor are in talks to open a tea emporium within the hotel, making it one of the first hotels in Manchester to do so.
