Tea, Fun, Money!
In 2005, Annie and Oscar set up a stand at a small Farmer’s Market in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Touring about the Island of Ireland they visited farmers markets and craft fairs and with the very generous help of their friends hit the music festival scene with their Tea & Toast set up. Having a strong brand identity and keeping true to their goals was the focus at this early stage. The business plan was. . . Tea, Fun, Money.
And so it began…
Having both wandered through Asia, their eyes were opened to a world of really (really) good ethically-sourced teas, which they wanted to share with everyone. Launched with the aim to provide their customers with the finest loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from around the world; the pair made ethical sourcing their priority whilst delivering a quality and fresh product. And so it began...
Sourcing and blending the world’s best tea
A decade later, our Belfast-based team still ethically sources and blends our big, fat, juicy, loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from all over the world. Today, Annie and Oscar still lead our team, and we keep winning award after award for both product and company, because we’re still focused on that same job – sourcing and blending the world’s best tea.
Quality is defined by what we source...
At Suki Tea, we have always believed quality is defined by what we source and what we deliver. We won’t settle for anything that is second best and this has been the driving force behind our vision since the very beginning. Our commitment to quality is reflected in responsible sourcing, great taste and delivering the very best customer experiences.
We are fiercely proud of what we have accomplished and as we embark on our 15th year in the industry, the knowledge and experiences we have gained so far are reflected into the new look and feel of SUKI TEA. So as we continue to dedicate ourselves to people, plant and planet, we move from Suki Tea to SUKI - Tea Makers after all, it takes a team of expert tea aficionados to do what we do.
To grow a global community of loose leaf tea drinkers, an appreciation society of the ritual in a great-tasting, ethically sourced cuppa.
To grow the business in an adventurous, yet responsible and sustainable way that respects and values people, plant and the planet.
Located south of the eastern Himalayas, and one of the biggest tea producing regions for Suki Tea.
