The Journey From Bush To Cup

  • The Field

  • It all starts here – from the tea bush. There is a saying in tea that you can’t make good tea out of bad leaf. In other words, good quality is dependent on good agricultural practices.
  • The Factory

  • This is where the plucked leaves get turned into dried tea and then packed into sacks. Different processes will take place depending on the type of tea being manufactured.
  • The Warehouse

  • Tea is stored in warehouses until they are ready for shipment. Tea is loaded into containers at the warehouse. This is Chai Trading in Mombasa
  • THE PORT OF DEPARTURE

  • After the tea is containerised it is loaded on board huge container ships. Shipments have to be planned carefully because sometimes vessels only call in at port for a short time.
  • THE SHIP

  • Our teas leave from the ports of Colombo, Mombasa and Kolkata. They take between 4-6 weeks to arrive.
  • THE PORT OF ARRIVAL

  • The containers are unloaded at Felixstowe and then warehoused.
  • BLENDING

  • The containers are unloaded at Felixstowe and then warehoused. Our tea is blended by our friend Will at Fine Tea Merchants. Not only is he a forklift wizard, he literally wrote the book on tea!
  • PACKING

  • Our tea bags are packed by Luke at Kingdom Tea Brokers. He keeps his machines very shiny!
  • THE KETTLE

  • Final destination!
