Unilever brings back iconic tea brand for its 150th birthday

This month, tea-lovers across the UK can rejoice as a much-loved tea brand from 1869 makes a comeback. Returning to celebrate its 150th year, Brooke Bond is back to deliver quality and affordable tea to the nation.

Born in Manchester but loved nationwide – Brooke Bond was launched with one mission in mind: to provide consumers with great-tasting tea at an affordable price. Fast-forward 150 years and this mission still remains true. Re-launching now, Brooke Bond is set to win the nations’ hearts yet again with a great-tasting tea at an affordable price, that doesn’t compromise on quality. 

Fiachra Moloney, Marketing Director Tea, Unilever UK&I said: “We’ve been in the tea business since the 1800s and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that Britons love tea! By re-introducing Brooke Bond, we’re ensuring that tea lovers across the UK can enjoy a quality cup of tea, no matter their budget.

“Returning to supermarket shelves in time to celebrate its 150th anniversary, the relaunch will not only warm the hearts of those who loved Brooke Bond previously, but it will also appeal to a completely new set of tea lovers. We can’t wait to see the iconic red van back on shelves!”

Taking pride in its northern roots, each box of Brooke Bond features a historic map of Manchester on the lid as well as the iconic little red van from its advertising – making the nostalgic brand instantly recognisable to shoppers.

Brooke Bond will be available at an RRP of £1.00 per 80 teabags and at an RRP of £2.00 per 160 teabags.
