Where our tea comes from
Just like coffee and wine, tea is a complex agricultural product that is the lovechild of applied science and human creativity. Primarily, a tea is defined by which of the six styles it belongs to, such as black, green, white, yellow, oolong or fermented. And while all tea comes from the same plant genus: Camellia sinensis, it is the terroir that truly shapes the attributes of tea. This means the environmental conditions such as climate, soil, rainfall, altitude and the season in which the tea leaf is picked and processed.
We source choice quality teas direct from the place of origin including India, Sri Lanka, Australia, China, Japan and Korea. No matter what you select from our range, you'll always receive fresh tea from passionate merchants.
