Tactical Tea came to fruition in 2018, co-founded by Alex Miller, Robert Higgins, Stephen Davies and Christopher Bright – all of whom are either military veterans or still serving. As well as their military careers, these four men have another thing in common - a love of tea! “There was nobody doing tea aimed towards the military and veterans,” Alex explains. “Coffee yes, but not tea. British squaddies love tea and it just seemed weird that nobody was attempting to fill that space.”
Alex, Robert, Stephen and Christopher are all living in different parts of the country, so how do they make this work? “Forward motion is really important,” reveals Alex. “Never standing still and always trying to learn from your mistakes. That is directly related to military service. The other thing is teamwork. Because two of us are still serving, we have to lean on each other quite a lot. It’s important to know that your business partners are there when you’re not.”
Fuelled by the love of a great cuppa, you get the feeling they will be just fine.
