WHY WE BELIEVE IN GREAT TEA

We love tea. Tea comes in all shapes and flavours and, in our opinion, all should be experienced with an open mind. Master tea merchants and blenders can create drinks that leave the palate begging for more. And, with loose leaf tea, you can usually get another brew from the same leaves.


The world is full of ever-expanding coffee shop chains, and we love coffee, too. But it's not easy to recreate those fancy coffees at home. Tea is easy. At home or at work, all you need is a kettle a cup and, maybe, a simple infuser or a filter bag. 


It's a treat for you or the perfect gift for any occasion, whether black or green, fruit or herbal, with or without caffeine, or exotic pu-erh, oolong or white teas. What a choice. And, after all, who doesn't like tea?


The Blue Tea Box experience is unique and your support is hugely appreciated. We seriously care about you and your opinions. Our customer service levels are second to none. So, if there is ever anything you need help with or if you have any feedback or advice for us, please, please let us know.

 

 Best,

Health Benefits 

It has been proven time and time again that tea is extremely healthy. The same Camellia sinensis tea plant amazingly produces black, green, white, yellow, oolong and pu-erh tea. So, why should we be drinking it?

The most commonly discussed benefit is that tea helps you lose weight. It does this by boosting your metabolism and increasing the rate at which you burn fat. Although all tea comes from the same tea plant (created with different processing), green tea is the highest in antioxidants and polyphenols and is the one where most studies show the most effective results.

Tea has been shown to lower your chances of getting many of forms of cancer. It can make you smarter, can prevent various diseases and is an all round good egg. But, one thing that’s for sure, tea is undeniably good for you. Happy drinking.

WHY ETHICAL TEA MATTERS

Tea is often grown on huge plantations with awful pay and horrific conditions for the workers. It is traded at auctions with just seven companies trading 90% of all tea into Europe and North America. Blue Tea Box works with small merchants who try to change things for the better, giving the worker and farmer a better deal. 

Our teas are ethically sourced from smallholders, local cooperatives and smaller plantations where possible. By encouraging the growth of high quality, often organic tea the farmers are better paid. This, in turn, enables them to support their families, villages and communities and to invest in sustainable farming and a better future.
