In a world full of bad news here is something rather wonderful...

In a world where we often feel powerless to help, here is something we can do together to make our lives immeasurably better and support one of the best tea gardens in the world.

Prepurchase an entire harvest...

But we need your help to do this.

All our teas are harvests purchased directly from farms and we ship, pack, warehouse and supply them to you across the world over the coming year.  But we have suffered with our friends and customers in hotels, restaurants, cafés and bars across the world facing lockdowns that have closed or vastly reduced their business. We sadly find ourselves in a position where we can’t buy as much as tea as we would like to support our farms.

We have always had to find new ways.

Back in the early years of Rare Tea Company, Henrietta got a contract to supply tea to a major retailer, but she didn’t have the funds to buy the tea. The banks laughed at her.  It was during the banking crisis of 2008 and there was no lending to small businesses; crowdfunding wasn’t yet a thing.

Henrietta contacted her best customers (in those early days she knew them all; she used to make up every internet order herself, early adopters will remember her often illegible handwritten notes and hair caught in the packing tape).

You got her through and lent her the money.

And it doesn’t have to stay with just you. This makes a marvellous Christmas gift delivered in time, wherever you are in the world.

For a pound a day you can help ensure the future of a farm.

Included in your box will be a storage tin to keep the tea fresh and a card that tells the story of this tea. The box can be shipped anywhere in the world your loved ones might be, and includes a personalised gift message.
