You want to enjoy tea of the finest quality and flavour knowing the skilled artisans who produced it were fairly compensated. That’s why we have made a radical break from colonial tea grading and traditional tea sourcing. We have re-imagined tea sourcing by working directly with a handful of tea smallholders and cooperatives who are transparent about their operations. In doing so, we aim to disclose the full story of every tea. We credit all our teas to our partner farmers and tea masters as the creators of the tea. This allows us to move beyond fair trade and directly impact workers and communities.
You care about the authenticity of the products you consume. We only sell teas in their pure (whole and complete) form true to its origin so you can taste and fall in love with the original flavour of each specific tea. Each tea differs based on altitude, soil, rainfall, variety, plucking method, processing and artistry. Our tea artisans are masters at crafting teas that are authentic to their origin and in balance with nature. We believe in letting the true flavour of tea stand and avoiding over stimulating your palate with scents and ingredients that don’t belong. It’s amazing how revealing untainted tea can be.
You like to stay connected and you want to know the whole story about what you are buying. We share the stories of those who plant, prune, pluck, harvest and craft the teas. We want you to experience a direct connection with our partner farmers and their communities. The story from bush to crop is part of every cup of tea we drink. Tea is a rich learning and sensory experience, and the livelihoods of farmers, workers and cooperatives are an integral part of this experience. Let’s create an authentic tea experience together.
WE TRADE FAIR
Our partner farmers are smallholders, family farmers and cooperatives who believe in transparency and who share our vision and values about changing the way that tea is marketed, produced and consumed. We have carefully selected our partner farmers according to a number of criteria. Our partner farmers are located in Nepal, Malawi, Kenya, Taiwan, Indonesia and Japan (and counting). The livelihoods of farmers, workers and cooperatives are a core concern of BREW. Each of our farms has a unique story to tell. We hope you will enjoy browsing their profiles and maybe even connecting with them on your future travels around the world.
