Glasgow tea supplier Brewhaha is to open its first tea-house in the centre of Glasgow in early November.

The firm, which supplies upmarket shops such as Harvey Nichols with its range of packaged teas, will open up shop between Costa Coffee and Coffee Republic in Buchanan Street in the city centre.

The 40-seat venue will focus on Brewhaha’s range of green and black teas, as well as serving Illy coffee, British food - such as ploughman’s sandwiches - and cakes. Director Douglas McLeod said: "We want to do something different to what you would normally find on the high street." He hopes to persuade a celebrity - to be confirmed - to open the shop. Actor Jude Law is a big fan of Brewhaha’s Rose Tea, he added.

Brewhaha is also importing its tea range to mainland Europe, including Denmark, Sweden and France.
