At TEALEAVES we source our teas and botanicals from the world’s tier-1 gardens. The fuller the leaves, the more robust and complex the palate. Whether from a single-estate or a combination, we carefully source to curate blends that are the very best expression of terroir. We bring the finest teas, flowers and herbs to our blending center, and meticulously cup out each ingredient, searching for the ultimate palate and nuanced complexity. The best harvests are sent to us as samples.
To make the perfect cup of tea, please refer to the back of each tin for steeping instructions!
We have been the blender of choice for five-star hotels and Michelin chefs worldwide. And now, you. Blending is at the core of our philosophy. We have earned our global reputation for skillfully pairing teas and botanicals to craft the ultimate palate experience. Our approach to blending is not limited to teas and botanicals. With deep-rooted values in craftsmanship, innovation and art & beauty, we blend techniques, stories, people, companies and ideas. The goal: to inspire connections and creativity, on the search for the ultimate lifestyle.
AROMA: Sweet and biscuity. PALATE: Elegant and refined smooth sweetness. NOTES: High energy and high caffeine. Blended true to the origin of "English Breakfast," our organic connoisseur-grade version is made in the great tradition of strong liquoring and malty black teas, best with a spot of milk.
It is still dark when the tea pickers awake. Reluctantly, I join them outside, missing my bed. While they prepare for the day, a steaming pot of tea circulates. The cup warms my hands as the tea revives my spirit. Sunrise is greeted with a cheer, and so a new day begins. When tea replaced ale as the favoured beverage at the breakfast table, it was an unblended China Keemun that was drunk. Respectful of the heritage of the original English Breakfast blend, our blenders work primarily with second flush black teas from China, India and Sri Lanka. Each of these origin teas contribute specific palate notes - Keemun (bright character), India (full-body, malty) and Ceylon (brilliant copper liquor). Thousands of hours of innovation and our Master Blenders' time have gone into making the most basic of all teas into this artisan blended English Breakfast. Our approach is to produce a connoisseur version of this classical tea - made with great passion in small batches. The result is an intensely flavoured black tea that showcases the great complexity that is found in fully-fermented teas; full-bodied, complex, and elegant.
