D.J. Miles - This is the story of how it all began, from Derek Miles.
"I started working in the Tea Trade in the early 1950's, in the City of London, first for a Dealers and then for a firm of Brokers in Plantation House, Mincing Lane. My background was in tea, as my grandfather Henry Miles started a
blending business in Birmingham in 1888 and my father and uncle ran it until 1974 after which I purchased it with a friend Norman Halls, and we incorporated it into D.J.Miles & Co."
