How do we source our teas?
We put a lot of time and effort into sourcing. Using word of mouth and extensive research, we ensure to unearth the treasures.

We really have to fall in love with our teas before we decide to stock any of them.
Unlike other subscription companies, we work with small farms and suppliers sourcing tea from around the world, often from China as well as India, Argentina, South Africa, Rwanda and even Thailand.

why we only sell loose leaf tea?

We believe that drinking loose leaf tea is much better for our planet.

Not only do some teabags contain microplastics, but the steps of transporting the tea to the teabag packing facility, as well as the energy required to package them and to ship them back to the distribution centre is a strain on environment that our founders Tom and Tatjana choose to avoid.

We realise that most people find tea bags more convenient. However, we believe that drinking loose leaf tea can be just as easy – all you need is the right teaware.

compostable vs. biodegradable

At teapro we are proud to announce that we’ve recently switched from biodegradable to compostable pouches, but what’s the difference?
All compostable items are biodegradable, but not all biodegradable products are compostable.

A notable difference between the two is that biodegradable products break down into a few natural elements, while compostable products leave behind a single organic material called humus, which has many beneficial uses which include fertilising and improving soil health.
