We create teas, coffees and infusions that taste extraordinary by using extremely good ingredients, creating clever blends and building close relationships with the best tea gardens in the world.
In 2015 we kicked off an ambitious project to plant 1 million trees over 10 years in Kenya. Working with smallholder tea farmers in the foothills of Mount Kenya (one of our key tea growing regions), the community reforestation scheme is one of the biggest tree planting projects we’ve ever funded and will deliver a number of benefits.
Eight years ago, we didn’t buy any tea from Malawi. The teas they were growing weren’t of good enough quality. But, over the last seven years we’ve been working with one particular producer who’s been willing to change things and really innovate, to the point that we’re seeing really good quality tea coming from them.
The UK has never been so in love with food. The last couple of decades have seen British tastes expand rapidly into new cuisines and ingredients. As if enlivened by a spritz of lime, the country’s palate has woken up. But we haven't just ventured outwards. As we explore new flavours, we’ve looked more closely at familiar foods too.
