About Us

Two Guildford School of Acting trained theatre technicians, one working in London’s West End in Stage Management, the other building scenery for theatres and venues around the world, were lying awake one night feeling mightily disenchanted with their chosen career paths. 

One said to the other “lets move to Cornwall and open a tea room” and so The Thirstea Co. was born! 

In the Autumn of 2013 what was to become The Thirstea Co seemed a far away dream, a mere idea and a vision. Within a few short months we had a name, a kitchen, and most importantly our lovely van, Earl. Since that moment we have been working non stop! 

Having fallen in love with the inimitable Citroen H Van, a rollercoaster journey followed; we served our first cup of tea having moved back to Cornwall, in early May 2014. 

If you spot ourselves and our Van Earl out and about do come and say hello!
