The museum tells the story of tea and coffee, two of the world's most important commodities, from when they first came to Europe four hundred years ago. It is depicted in ceramics, metal and graphic arts.

'The Bramah Museum has now moved to Bankside which is Britain's fastest growing visitor destination.

The museum reflects on the changes to the tea trade following the development of the coffee bars in 1952 and the television advertising of instant coffee that followed commercial TV when it was introduced in 1956. Many Indian and African producers responded by manufacturing the fast infusing teas for use in teabags, which now account for 90% of the UK tea markets.

The museum tea room welcomes visitors from all over the world and is open to the general public. The retail shop sells ground coffee and a range of orthodox slow-infusing Bramah teas. Other related products such as caddies, tea strainers, tea towels and coffee makers are available.
