our values


Tea is so much a part of our everyday life that it is easy to take it for granted. The process of getting tea from the bush to our cup involves many different people with different skills from plucker to tea maker.  These people possess great expertise and take great pride and satisfaction from producing top quality tea.

We aim to source the finest teas from estates where the workers and the environment are looked after and respected and this can sometimes also be from estates where organic or bio dynamic farming methods are used.

The tea in our breakfast tea bags and bellevue best brew leaf tea bags is Rainforest Alliance certified. Please watch this video if you want to find out more about the aims of the The Rainforest Alliance .  

Every day we try to do our best for the environment in little ways that we hope will make a difference.
