We are an award winning specialist tea and coffee retailer, where you can sample before you buy, where you can learn about the tea or coffee – where it comes from, learn about the farm, the farmer, and how they grow and harvest their crop.
Learn how to get the best from your drink, whether it’s the brew temperature or brew time, brew method. We can supply any kit you need, from the humble v60 to your own espresso machine at home, including installation and servicing.
Training is provided on slow brew methods, barista skills, milk skills, and tasting sessions for tea and coffee, for groups, public or private events.
Seibiant is an award winning specialist tea and coffee shop in Conwy, north Wales, which has been open since May 2016. In 2019 we won the Conwy Business Awards Green Business of the Year – we are committed to sustainability all along the supply chain, and took the step this year of banning single use cups for takeaway – you can now buy or rent bamboo cups, or just bring your own cup – be it a posh takeaway cup or a pottery cup from the charity shop down the road.
We sell teas and coffees and all of the kit that you may need to go with them, and a few bits that you really don’t need but that we liked.
Coffees are roasted fairly locally, all in Wales, and with the occasional guest roaster from further afield. We work with roasters who have where possible direct relationships with the coffee growers, whether directly themselves, or through organisations such as Falcon Speciality. We aim to have coffee that has been grown organically where possible, but the nature of the ‘organic’ label means that it is rarely certified as such – the certification has to extend throughout the chain, right down to the machine the coffee is roasted in, and that proves to be too expensive for our small roasters.
Teas are sourced direct where we can, but certainly through wholesalers who have direct trade relationships. We blend a few of our own teas, and can create and develop blends for you, given enough notice.
We find that as we become more geeky in relation to our teas and coffees, so our customers follow, and so we have regular tea tasting evenings for guests to sample a few teas – usually based on a theme, but once we cover the plan, then you can taste anything you fancy!
