Today marks our 15th birthday! And at SUKI HQ we are celebrating in style with a Pizza Party for all of our amazing team of tea makers!
It's hard to believe it has been 15 years since Annie and Oscar officially set up Suki Tea... Having both travelled extensively, Annie and Oscar had their eyes opened to a world of amazing quality, ethically-sourced teas. Which - thankfully - they wanted to share with the world.
In 2005, Suki Tea was launched with the aim to provide the finest loose leaf tea blends..
Fifteen years later...
Our Belfast-based team still ethically source and blend our loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from all over the world.
We have achieved a lot since our last birthday. At the end of last year we moved from Suki Tea to SUKI Tea Makers...after all, it takes a team of expert tea aficionados to do what we do.
With our new name came our new look. We moved from our well recognised brown farmers market style bags to our amazing new plastic free tea packaging.
This was a challenging step for us but an important one that links closely to our core ethics and ethos.
To align with our new look, our new website went live. Our old website had been running since 2015! After a lot of hard work and long hours, we launched our new website before Christmas.
It was a big project for us and we are pleased with how well it is doing and have loved hearing everyone's positive feedback.
Amid all of these changes, we also relocated the SUKI office space, we are in the processes of expanding our warehouse and production facilities so it was time for a new space. It was an easy move though, the new offices are just across the road from the original warehouse! This is an exciting step for us and we are loving our new home! We have a brand new tea-tasting room where we will be experimenting with loads of new and exciting blends, as well as keeping on top of all our favourites.
It has been a very busy year the team at SUKI...
We would not be where we are today without our amazing customers. You are simply the best!! We can't thank you enough for all of your support, feedback and appreciation for great tea!
And as we continue to dedicate ourselves to people, plant and planet we are very excited to see what the next 15 years holds for us... So let's raise a cup (of tea) to SUKI!
Happy 15th Birthday to us...
