Our Teas

What makes our tea fetch top auction prices?

This is best answered by quoting what a Rolls Royce engineer once said to the question

He said, “There is really no magic about it – it is merely patient attention to detail.”
We further believe that greatness comes out only if great care has been put in… Read on and learn more about the detail and great care that goes into our tea…
The four key ingredients to producing the best tea…

Firstly, the tea comes to you from the heart of the world’s finest tea growing country. Our tea gets its unique character from being in the middle of an untouched rainforest declared a World Heritage site. The tea grows at an elevation of about 1000 feet.
Here you will find peaceful rolling green terraces … mist filled valleys… vibrant green leaves showered in dew drops … bathed by fresh cool breezes all year… warmed by rays of sunlight … and fed with pure water from natural streams…

Secondly, every leaf you get is hand plucked and treated with great care. Only traditional methods are used – methods that we have fine tuned since 1920. We do not believe in trading quality for quantity and lower costs achieved through the current cold high-production systems that replace people.

Thirdly, we find the most passionate people and shower them with rewards because when passionate people are rewarded, they create great things.

Finally, each week we ask the world’s most demanding customers (tea connoisseurs and brokers) to taste our tea and tell us what they think. We then sell the tea at the auctions where the market decides how good our tea is compared to everyone else’s…
The fact that our tea is consistently highly sought after by the market, speaks for itself. It is merely the result of patient attention to detail in addition to the above ingredients.
