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.

Bergamot oil comes from a small citrus grown in Italy (first press and cold pressed), lending its distinctive aroma to this traditional estate black tea.
Sitting with the emperor, I shared a pot of tea. The tea's beguiling fragrance induced a state of tranquility. Pleased, the emperor said, "A special blend to honour our friendship. It bestows peace on those who drink it." - Charles the Earl of Grey, 1834
Whether there ever was a real Earl of Grey who drank tea, especially this blend, is subject to debate. However, what we do know is that the Earl Grey blend is named after the second Earl Grey, the British Prime Minister in the 1830s who sold Chinese tea under the brand name of “Earl Grey Tea.”
"I love TEALEAVES tea. I use the Earl Grey tea for my Earl Grey Opera cake and macaroons." - ICON Fumiko Moreton
