Why do we blend tea?
We harvest our estate about 30 to 35 times per year, depending upon the weather. Every time we harvest, the made tea differs from the prior harvest, caused by a whole series of factors such as length of time between harvests, amount of rain, clouds, wind and sun. If we were to just pack out our estate tea, each packet would taste different to the prior one, and we would not be able to offer the different styles of teas, such as Premium Blend, English Breakfast, Pure Assam, Green etc. So to allow us to offer both product variety and consistency, we buy high quality teas from carefully selected overseas estates. These teas are then carefully blended under the watchful eye of our Master Tea Taster to produce teas of exceptional quality, variety and consistency.
