We offer 100% natural,
whole leaf, hand packed teas and herbal infusions. They're
available for purchase online on this website as well as in
a few stockists.
Leaf was set up in 2005 by its original founder who after over 10 years spent
in the food & drinks industry, including the tea sector simply had enough of the growing industrialization
and uniformization of products, and I wanted to do my bit
against this wave.
Taste, quality and simplicity are what it's
all about at Leaf. From the crisp fresh taste of our peppermint
to the gentle taste of our organic green tea, it's all here
for you to try, just real clean tastes.
We use only 100% natural crops (no hidden 'nature
identical' flavours), truly real ingredients and health packed young leaves (why
settle for dust and leftovers of leaves when the goodness
and subtle taste is in the core leaf?). And they are all hand
packed to avoid any mecanised process break the leaves.
We also sell everything that makes tea time so enjoyable with great tea accessories, with an emphasis where we can on items made by hand or close to home (including mugs made in England).
We couldn't have put the tea range together without
'taste buds' and a real expertise. So we buy most of our tea
via one of the last remaining real tea expert in Europe and
his very small team. We benefit from his long standing direct
relationships with tea gardens and unrivalled taste. He will
be on the ground many months of the year choosing teas to
bring back, a few of which we present to you.
When you buy quality
teas, this means the prices per kilo the growers get are well above
mainstream teas. Buying poor quality tea goes hand in hand
with low prices per kilo to growers. Quality offers a chance
to tea growers to exit or minimise the race for cheaper products,
a race that can only lead one way: downwards, leaving no choice
to tea gardens than to squeeze costs to survive (including
and foremost wages). Quality, we believe, is the first step
towards fairness and sustainability.
