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.”
We searched high and low to find local tea specialists that knew as much about speciality tea as we do about coffee. Based in Wellington, Somerset, we found likeminded tea experts that cared deeply about planet friendly, unrivalled local produce. So, we met up over many a brew to begin creating the Voyager Tea blends and the rest was history…
Our new friends spent a considerable amount of time discovering outstanding high elevation tea growers, from the foothills of the Himalayas to the Nilgiri mountains, so that we could create not just a well-blended brew, but an experience not easily forgotten, for tea enthusiasts of all ages.
