A small but rapidly-growing tea company based in Cornwall is claiming to have become the first in the world to launch a Nespresso machine-compatible tea capsule.

The ‘Captain’s Choice’ tea capsule “delivers a top-quality cup of tea at the touch of a button”, and is the result of a collaboration between kitchen appliance company Duralit and Looe-based Cornish Tea.

Cornish Tea director, Duncan Bond, said: “We are terrifically proud to be the first tea brand in the world to be launching a Nespresso-compatible tea capsule – it has never been done before, and it has tremendous global potential.

“When teabags were first introduced people said they’d never catch on – now they are 97% of the market. This could have a similar impact.”
