Akihiro 'Akky' Kita is the head farmer at our Matcha farm. He discovered his love for this delicious powdered tea when working as a farmhand in Wazuka, Japan - and the second he left college, he decided to devote his life to mastering the intricate art of tea farming.

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 Genmaicha is grown by an incredible family of revolutionaries. Against the distrust and stigma that came from being the first organic tea farm in the village, they have broken all the rules to create this marvellous, mouthwatering green tea.

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.

Wild Rooibos

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.

Edna is the incredible farmer behind our lemon verbena. When she first started working on the crop, she had no idea how difficult it would be - but over time, she learnt to tackle its fragile nature to create the best lemon verbena we've ever tasted.
