Typhoo Tea Limited has a long and rich heritage, stretching back to 1903 when Birmingham grocer John Sumner developed and sold a blend of tea in his shop. John’s sister, Mary, was the inspiration behind the product development, as she highly regarded tea as a cure for indigestion. The company issued a large number of trade card series and is still a leading brand in the UK.


This series was issued in 1939 and shows the arms of the British colonies at the time as well as a picture and description of their main industries. On the reverse is an advertisement for tennis and golf equipment, not tea !
