Making tea is one of the little rituals we go through every day ask around and youll find that almost everyone that drinks tea has their own special way of making it. Whether it be milk in first, shaking the tea bag or boiling the water twice (yes, really) theres always a tip or trick to making the perfect cup.
Tiny Teas, the London based tea retailer, has launched a range of whole-leaf teas designed to take you back in time, surprise your senses and bring something different to tea time. Its range of loose-leaf blends aims to take tea back to its roots to the teapot and strainer, bringing back the authentic taste of tea (They also offer individual strainer and make-your own t-sacs if you dont fancy breaking out the fine china).
From traditional blends to surprising mixes Tiny Teas offer a tea to suit every palette. The teas, priced from £2.69 for 50g, come in a range of single estate and blended varieties, from traditional English Breakfast through to more daring blends such as Chilli Mango, Apple Crumble, and a delicate Vanilla Rooibos.
The company believes in more than simply making teas it hopes to make an impact on the people that make the teas as well.
Packaging, for example, is made by the Kawangware (Kenya) Street & Youth Project. Tiny Teas pay a premium price for handmade packaging, many times over factory made packs, to ensure that homeless children and widows in Kawangware can benefit from the sale of the product.
The project, in association with other UK and international companies has already benefited the local area hugely, with a new school building, improved standards of health and medical care, better accommodation and a general better standard of living being provided as a result of the project.
The range is sourced from around the world, and a fair pricing policy is in place, ensuring that the worker always receives a fair end price for its product. Tiny Teas teas are packed under the Ethical Tea Partnership
http://www.ethicalteapartnership.org/ ensuring sustainability and better conditions for tea workers.
In keeping with Tiny Teas eco-credentials, the outer packaging is fully compostable and recyclable.
