The Tea Makers of London partner with SANE
We have partnered with SANE, the UK's leading mental health charity, and together have created a special herbal blend. Read more about SANE and the services they provide, and how buying this tea can help make a difference to those affected by mental ill health.
The Tea Makers of London have partnered with mental health charity, SANE, to support their vital work in campaigning, researching and providing care for those in mental health crisis.
SANE works to improve the quality of life for anyone affected by mental ill health.
The charity was created in 1986 by the charity’s founder and chief executive, Marjorie Wallace. The charity’s vision is to raise public awareness; excite research and bring compassionate care to those experiencing mental ill health.
1) To raise awareness and combat stigma about mental illness, educating and campaigning to improve mental health services
2) To provide care and emotional support for people with mental health problems, their families and carers, as well as information for other organisations and the public
3) To initiate research into the causes and treatments of serious mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, depression and psychological and social impacts of mental illness
The charity provides support, guidance and information to anyone affected by mental illness, including families, friends and carers.
- SANEline - a national out-of-hours mental health helpline, offering specialist emotional support, guidance and information to anyone affected by mental illness - including family, friends and carers. Open every day of the year (including bank holidays) from 4.30pm - 10.30pm, at 0300 304 7000

- Call Backs - (offered when appropriate) SANE offer calls from their Caller Care team, to support and explore an individual's situation/issues in more detail than the helpline is designer to offer.
- Support Forum - the online forum facilitates a key part of the SANE online community. It is a monitored, safe space for users to offer support, ideas and share experiences. Available 24 hours a day.
SANE also provides a voice to a large online community through its social media channels, image, audio and video galleries and blog site.
'We should never underestimate the comfort and healing powers of a pot of perfectly made tea, preferably served in a fine bone china cup. Tea can refresh and redeem, as John Betjeman observed:
“She such a very ordinary little woman;
He such a thumping crook;
But both, for a moment, little lower than the angels
In the teashop's ingle-nook.'
Marjorie Wallace - Founder and CEO of SANE
About the blend
We felt inspired by SANE's vital work and wanted to support the cause in the only way we know how...with a cup of tea!
With months of tea trials and expert blending, a special herbal infusion has been specially created - Refreshing SANE Herbal Blend.
The tea is a comforting herbal infusion of chamomile blossoms, tangerine and rose blossoms.
This refreshing loose leaf tea makes for a delicately aromatic infusion, ideal for enjoying during a quiet moment in the day. This is a mild and sweet blend with citrus notes and ginger. We have perfected this sublime tea, with your wellbeing in mind.
'We are very excited to be supporting the wonderful work SANE does to change the conversation around mental health. As a big tea drinking nation, we use cups of teas to enjoy, unwind and to comfort any stresses life may throw at us. We thought it was perfect to create a soothing herbal blend together, in hope that everyone can experience quality time of self-care, with a quality cup of tea!'
Sam Sameen - Director and Founder of The Tea Makers of London
