We searched far and wide for a range of whole-leaf teas which were made with the same passion, ethical values and artisan craftsmanship that we bring to coffee.
After many months of searching, we decided to make our own.
We are delighted to introduce Extract Tea. A new range of speciality teas available for cafes, restaurants and wholesale customers. Ethically sourced. Perfectly crafted. The way that it should be.
The teas in our new Extract Tea range are ethically sourced from the world’s finest tea gardens.
Like our single-estate Darjeeling from The Arya Tea Garden. A bio-organic, award winning farm and one of the oldest tea gardens in India.
Or the Rutsiro Tea Garden in Rwanda. A wholly organic tea garden which provides workers and their dependents with healthcare and free childcare for their dependents.
Or the ginger in our organic Ginger & Lemongrass. Shade grown under coconut palms and jackfruit trees with bell pepper vines growing up the trunks. An incredible example of bio-diversity at its most inspiring.
Each tea is perfectly crafted and blended by some of the best tea-smiths here in the UK. Organic herbalists championing and tea experts who cut their teeth in the world of fine dining and five star hotels.
Then lovingly packed by hand as loose leaf or biodegradable pyramid bags.
Our vision was that Extract Tea should be better. That every cup should count towards making our world a better place.
Not just better quality, and better crafted, but better for people and planet.
Our sweet spot is small farms producing exquisite teas using organic and sustainable farming techniques. Transforming communities for the better and protecting the environment.
Taking control of our supply chain means we can offer direct support to tea farmers like Arya Tea Garden, Tonanagon and Rutsiro who are doing incredible work to support not just far workers, but entire communities.
Larger pack sizes mean our new range uses considerably less packaging. It’s also delivered to us in reusable crates which saves even more packaging.
Our pyramid teabags are sealed with plants not plastic, so when your brew is done, you can just pop them in your compost.
Every pack of Extract Tea supports Grounds Up, a collective of community projects helping vulnerable adults and young people here in the UK by sharing knowledge and skills.
Our Grounds Up partners include Hotel School which provides ex rough sleepers with hospitality training, and Empire Fighting Chance which helps vulnerable young people raise aspiration and make better life choices.
Explore the full range and book in some free tea training for your team so you can serve a perfect brew every time.
