Why fresh tea?

Single estate, true grade teas from the world to your doorstep! Having been in the tea trade for over thirty five years, we know our tea (and coffee). We now want to bring you what we are used to drinking every day - fresh tea - full of nature's great health benefits. 

To enjoy the flavour of good tea and coffee and derive all the health benefits, it must be fresh, especially tea. Tea is highly hygroscopic and picks up moisture even from relatively dry air. This then, has effectively started the brewing process. Both tea and coffee will deteriorate the longer they are exposed to air and the older they get. Except for Pu-erh teas and some of the Japanese green teas that are aged to mellow, all other teas do not get better with age!

Our endeavour is to bring the freshest and best teas and coffees in the world, direct to you, the discerning consumer. Specialty, whole leaf and leaf, unblended, true grade teas – no gimmicks – packed on and straight from the plantations. These are specially selected for Australasia and the Pacific region by our plantation professional. Teas from Assam, Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Darjeeling, The High Range (South India), Kenya, The Nilgiris (South India) and Uganda are available in bulk, wholesale and retail quantities as well as Single Estate Coffees from Coorg (South India).
