Tea isn’t just the comforting, steamy drink that we all grew up with, it is a chance to make a stand on quality, ethics, and our environmental impact. That’s why, alongside our sustainable, hand-roasted coffees, we also have a selection of teas. Having gained a reputation for discovering and roasting seriously good speciality coffee, the Voyager team gathered in the roastery on a misty morning in November, to discuss the concept of creating a selection of teas that far surpass your average daily brew.
When we were kids we associated tea drinking with our grandparents, serving up a glorious homemade Victoria Sponge with a cup of Earl Grey poured from a fine china teapot. Skip a generation or two and going for tea with friends, pouring big leaf teas from chic infusion pots, whilst indulging in locally made artisan cakes, is now a trend set in stone for the younger generation as well as the old. “It’s a culture as cool as coffee and we wanted to share it with you.”
All our teas are ethically sourced from high-elevation tea growers from the foothills of the Himalayas to the Nilgiri mountains. You can buy our tea online as both loose leaf and speciality tea pyramids which are even plastic-free, being wrapped in a compostable, heat-sealed bag. Voyager Tea is blended and packed here in the South West. Each little pyramid has its own story to tell, expect unexpected flavours to awaken your senses in a way you only thought coffee could.
