TM “MILFORD” is owned by the European tea company Ostfriesische Tee Gesellschaft Gmbh & Co. KG (OTG), which was founded in 1907 by Laurens Janssen with the headquarters in Hamburg. For a long time Laurens Janssen remained the sole seller of its product. At first, he were visiting his customers managing the carriage by himself, then was elegant, controlled by the driver, Maybach, with the rose in the buttonhole and the Doberman on the seat. He was adored by the Hamburg society, because he was able to reach out the people. The clients loved him, and he, in return, were giving them a little tea gifts. In 1953 the company took over the reign of his grandson Laurens Spethmann.
