our beliefs

We know that doing small things better can make a big difference. That first cuppa in the morning? Game changer!


That’s why we make a big thing about real, quality tea, sourced sustainably, in packaging that’s better for the environment. We give back to the communities that bring us our tea. We do our best to take care of the people that make it all happen and we're very proud to be B Corp certified. Plus we try not to take ourselves too seriously along the way. No airs. No graces. Just fine tea.


We only source the best quality tea leaves, berries, herbs and spices. 100% natural with no artificial flavourings. 


We source from sustainable estates and we were the 1st tea company to be certified Plastic-Free.


We give back to the communities that bring us our tea and our local community in Brentford. We have our own ethical scheme that gives back to vulnerable young people in Gisenyi, Rwanda.

our people

We work hard to develop & maintain a friendly company culture that supports people to be the best they can be through training & development, open feedback sessions, a big focus on health & well being in the work place & agile working options. We reward our people for what they bring to the business, we are a London living wage employer & continually review our culture & benefits package as we evolve & receive feedback. We have a strong, inclusive team spirit that we work hard to maintain.

our tea

Given that it makes up most of our name – it’s safe to say we love tea. We particularly love real tea. By real tea, we mean top quality tea leaves, whole herbs, whole berries, whole spices, whole flowers ...you get the picture.

It's all about the flavour. The tea in regular tea bags has been squashed, chopped and manhandled so, by the time it reaches your cup, almost all the flavour is lost. We don't think that's very nice.


We select top quality ingredients and keep them big and whole for BIG flavour... simple!

our tea temple

We think the teabag was an inspired idea – one of the greatest inventions before (and since) sliced bread. But you can’t fit whole leaf tea in regular paper teabags. And not everyone has the time to make loose tea the ‘proper' way, what with all the pot warming, deciding who will be mother etc.


And so the tea temple was born – a roomy, biodegradable mesh bag, which offers all the space whole leaves need to release their big, bold, beautiful flavour. Loose tea – without the fuss! (although we do have loose tea as well, if you like a bit of fuss).
