Wilkinson’s of Norwich: Over forty years of the finest quality.
In 1972 the grand opening of the finest shop for tea and coffee in East Anglia became a reality. The small building located on Magdalen Street in Norwich featured over 100 different teas and over 35 different of coffees. Wilkinson set himself and his shop apart by purchasing a small coffee roaster and roasting his world-wide selection of beans in small batches in the back of his shop.
In time the Magdalen Street shop was abandoned in favour of what is now Wilkinson’s present location on Lobster Lane in the City Centre of Norwich. In the ensuing years Ronald Wilkinson created many trademark products. Some were at his customer’s request, but most were crafted from his great love of teas and coffee. Tragically, however, Mr Wilkinson died shortly after retiring from the business which still offers many of his own trade mark recipes. Like Wilkinsons Madness and "Ron's choice"
The business’ current owners Rick Harris and his wife Debbie are dedicated to the principals that Ron Wilkinson stood for. Teas are still purchased from around the world ensuring a huge selection of the finest leaf and fruit. Wilkinson’s exotic coffees are still roasted daily in small batches for freshness. A few of the products have changed over the years, as has the coffee and tea industries. For example, Wilkinson’s is proud to offer Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance products helping to increase world awareness and unity.
