Our story starts with six single origin black teas
Every story must have a beginning and for R-tea it starts with these six amazing Black Teas. They all have slightly different characteristics, from the strong and robust low grown teas of Assam and Kenya to the light and refreshing high grown teas of Darjeeling and Himalayas.
Blending natural flavours
From these wonderful single origin black teas we were able to create a base for a wide array of delicious tea blends from gin to chocolate orange. We believe the key to really great tasting tea is to use a good quality base tea with just the right body and characteristics, then blend in real fruits, leaves, seeds and roots to create natural healthy delicious flavours. The possibilities are endless and we are constantly experimenting with new concoctions and variations.

We care about the environment
R-tea is constantly striving to find ways to reduce unnecessary waste. So all the delivery packaging your tea is sent to you in is eco-friendly and fully recyclable. We encourage you to reuse your capsules and offer an Eco-Refill service where your tea is sent in the ultimate Eco-friendly compostable pack. It is made from paper and lined with a bio-plastic made from cellulose. So once you have refilled your container, you can throw your pack out along with your used tea leaves and it won't harm the planet!
We also care about our customers and have always looked for innovative ways to provide the most personal service.

Create Something Unique
Adaptability is something that R-tea was founded on. The first tea that we sold was tea themed wedding favours, gin tea was created from a simple challenge for a birthday gift. We love creating unique tea gifts and have built our service round that. Whether it is a personalised gift for a friend or creating a custom made blend for a local cafe, we offer an adaptable service that fits round you, the customer.
