Packets for tea
J. Allan Braithwaite Ltd.

Museum number T2662

Strung packets for tea, printed with "J. Allan Braithwaite Ltd, The Pillars Tea Shop, 6 Castle Street, Dundee".

Braithwaite's traded from a shop at the Town House in the High Street, known as "The Pillars", before moving to Castle Street. The building's image and name became a trademark for the business.

Increasing demand led to the founding of tea and coffee merchants in the 1860s.
Braithwaite's in Castle Street is still a traditional tea and coffee supplier.
