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.

Known as the "champagne of teas," Darjeeling is the most expensive and highly coveted of black teas.
As you arrive at the town of Darjeeling, the scent of fresh evergreen forests permeates your being. You settle on a hill with a cup of refreshing White Tip Darjeeling and absorb every inch of culture. Gazing out at the spectacular view of Mount Kangchenjunga, you feel on top of the world.
The Darjeeling region nestles in the mist-engulfed foothills of the Himalayas, at an elevation above 7000 feet. The unique bouquet and "muscatel" flavor of a good Darjeeling is the result of the combination of the ideal growing conditions: a cool moist climate, loamy soil, rainfall, high elevation, and sloping terrain. The cooler climate produces a small leaf with concentrated oils and aromatics.
