feel good values
The truly remarkable world of true quality tea is still mostly unknown in the western countries. It is time to take those teas into limelight!
My passion of starting my company came from a strong will to make a difference in the world. I believe in true quality, which goes hand in hand with respect for people and the nature.
This is what makes these teas so much better:
1. Artisan Premium Quality. Supporting this traditional, but rare, art of making Orthodox quality tea, choosing only the best quality leaves from the top of the tea plant. The leaves are handpicked and processed in a way that enhances the unique flavors of each tea, being careful not to crush the whole leaves. Teas are not blended, so they come from only one farm. That way the flavors created by the terroir and the origin are preserved.
2. Sustainable. Choosing farms that are sustainable, protecting the environment and the wildlife. Quality tea gets its taste from the soil, climate, variety and processing techniques and that's why it's important to keep those factors intact: no pesticides used and no foul play. The farms work hard to cooperate with the nature, not against it, by using renewable energy sources and being self-sufficient.
3. Transparency. I buy tea straight from the origin without using middlemen. This ensures the freshness of the tea, but more importantly: that way the farmers get a fair share for their hard work. The pickers get paid well above the average. I introduce the makers behind my teas as they are the most important factor in quality tea. This is the honest way of doing trade.
