Meet The Farmers
Our Secret Ingredient
In the small town of Naharkatia, on the upper bank of the Brahmaputra river valley in Assam, is a small farm. There, nestled between the wilderness of Arunachal Pradesh and the mountains of Burma, live two tea farmers: Mr. and Mrs. Borah. They produce the wonderful Prithivi black tea for our blends.
Yu Pu fought against all odds to reclaim her life after a devastating divorce, and has changed the lives of many other incredible women along the way. Her Broken Silver tea is the most delicious Pu'erh that we have ever tried, and her passion and talent for the local wild tea trees is evident in this brew.

Our spice farmers all live on teeny-tiny plots of land in Indonesia, Zanzibar, India, and Lebanon. They are the real talent behind our Sticky Chai, Vegan Sticky Chai, and Welsh Cake teas, and we appreciate the incredible amount of work that they put into cultivating the most delicious spices on the planet.
Dr. Frikkie Strauss comes from generations of iconic wild rooibos farmers (really, there's whole Wikipedia pages on them!) and without a doubt, he curates the best rooibos in the world. His story is absolutely incredible and we are so excited to share his story with you.
Sweet Malawian Spearmint
Mr. Limbani Chitseko is an absolute legend. He was one of the founding farmers for the Msuwadzi Small Holder Tea Growers Association, where he shared his belief that diversifying crops was the best way to create a healthy environment. As such, he cultivates spearmint which is resilient, fresh, and sweet, whilst taking care of the many other plants in the area.
