What We Stand For
Quality and Sourcing
Detail, quality and sourcing fundamentally underline everything we create. We work hard to source the best tasting, organically cultivated and fairly traded ingredients. All of our products are hand blended in small batches and we manage all of our packing and shipping in-house to ensure quality and care throughout the process. Where we work with other small businesses, we do so as a value-aligned partnership, with a focus on respect and an emphasis on creating high quality products and relationships that are made to last. We believe that this is how communities and friendships are formed and small businesses thrive.
Intention and Kindness
The warmth and comfort that a shared cup of tea brings to meaningful moments is something that we have fostered into the way in which we talk about and run our business. We firmly believe in putting people and the planet ahead of profit, with the relationships we create, being built on kindness, respect and empathy. We strive to bring the warmth and comfort that tea brings into the products we create and the relationships we build. To us, to shop small, represents a kindness, where conscious, active choices are selected to support something different. We believe there is a power in shopping with intention and that is that it represents change; it supports dreams, communities and rewards creativity. It can change the world.
Mindfulness and Process
If you choose for it to be, we’ve found that drinking tea can be such a mindful experience. We like to talk about the ritual around making yourself a cup of tea, this is about how you choose to spend this time, as well as how you might like your tea. Much like the tea type, this approach varies from person to person; we like to take our time, to set aside our phones and laptops and use this moment, for as long as it takes the kettle to boil and the tea to steep to reflect, to smell the tea and relax. These small changes in daily routines can help to add joyful and calm moments to your day.
Balance and Mindful Growth
The future is something we talk about with huge passion and excitement – the direction of this business feels limitless and it’s imperative that we remind ourselves in every decision that we make, that it should be approached with balance; where taking care with regards to social and environmental impacts are considered at the forefront of this process – in order to help us achieve sustainable growth. For us this means continuing to carefully source the best ingredients and develop long term meaningful relationships with our producers and partners; to form connections based on trust, reliability and respect. Our purpose is not to monopolise and rule the independent tea sector, but to support it and help it grow, where responsible sourcing and serving our community are at the heart of everything we do – our success is measured by our ability to provide this service, where profit comes secondary and as a byproduct of this goal.
