Bramah Tea & Coffee Museum

Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum is the world's first museum devoted entirely to the history of tea and coffee.

The museum allows the visitor to explore the history and traditions of these two important beverages amongst the tea warehouses of Butlers Wharf. From the 17th century coffee houses to the coffee bars of the 1950s and from Oriental traditions to the teabag, you can find out everything you ever wanted to know about tea and coffee. At its peak, Butlers Wharf used to handle 6,000 chests of tea a day.

The museum is divided into two sections, one telling the story of tea and the other telling the story of coffee. The unique collection and displays of ceramics, metalware and prints portray the 400 year old commercial and social history of two of the world's most important commodities since their arrival in Europe from the Far East and Africa.

The museum also has a tea room serving a wide selection of orthodox teas and ground coffees. Cream teas and afternoon teas are a house speciality.
