From seed to plant, from plant to tea, from tea back into soil — we are always striving towards long-term sustainability!
Our teas are sourced from plantations around the world with high production quality standards.
All our base teas are selected and imported by local suppliers, who maintain close contact and frequently visit plantation managers in each origin country, to ensure consistency of quality, taste, plus safe working and social conditions. Tea estates in every country also provide a lot of reliable jobs for their local communities, as many people’s effort goes into hand-picking each leaf, withering, rolling, drying - basically, creating the best tea leaves for your perfect cup.
Our teas also go through strict quality controls, including microbiological analyses and screening for pesticides, heavy metals, aflatoxins, and other production residue, so you can rest assured that the tea in your cup is the purest.
We then take these high quality teas and get to work in our tea "laboratory", making delicious experiments in blending them together, or adding dried fruits, flowers, herbs, fresh ground spices, fruit extracts, and flavor extracts. We formulate all our flavors to be bold and soulful, testing multiple times to ensure that the natural taste of the tea is not lost, but only enhanced by the addition of flavor.
