With all the recent noise around teas with added flavours, spiced teas and herbal infusions with seemingly miraculous properties, many seem to have forgotten what real tea is actually all about.
We believe that real tea represents a story waiting to be discovered. Just as is the case with wine, a real tea’s final flavour is never a coincidence but a serendipitous combination of terroir and production skills. And so each cup of tea tells a story; a story that engages our senses as well as our grey cells; a story that allows us to escape from an increasingly noisy, cluttered world into one of stillness and reflection. Beyond that, real tea is a journey and a wonderful catalyst for conversations that can easily go deep into the night.
We also aim to bring more transparency to the tea industry by being as open as possible not only about how a tea has been processed, but also who made a tea. The tea masters are the unsung heroes of the tea industry – we want to celebrate them and their produce.
