Meet the Producers
Dedication to Flavour. Care for the Environment.
This is what unites us with the producers behind our teas.
We’ve travelled far and wide to build a network of expertly selected tea makers. These journeys have taken us to the wild, ancient forests of Yunnan, up into the foothills of the Himalayas, through the lush coastal prefectures of Japan and beyond. On the way, we’ve shared long lunches, precarious car journeys and learnt “cheers” in many dialects. Our network is built on personal relationships with tea producers with whom we share a commitment to teas of the highest quality, and environmentally responsible farming methods.
Every tea producer we work with is an accomplished master craftsman, with a wealth of expertise that enables each of them to create their unique tea. For some, this knowledge has been from generations-long growing on the same plot, as it is with the Miyazakis and the Gyokuro tea they produce in Japan. Others like the Chen family, who oversaw the conversion of their family’s land to organic, have dedicated their life’s work to understanding new techniques to perfect their tea and protect their land in Taiwan.
