The Tea Chest Story

The Tea Chest Story 1622 1124 The Tea Chest - Luxury Tea Merchants

Moving an idea from one’s imagination to reality, is like watching the rich stains of a tea leaf and hot water swirl into a perfect balance of aroma and taste. It takes time. It requires us to stop what we are doing. It promises significance, brings delight and is best shared.

I spent my childhood and early adult years in Europe, and grew up enjoying a great many different teas. When I first came to South Africa in 2001, I really missed this variety. Fortunately, frequent travels abroad did more than just whet my appetite, they allowed me to cultivate a passion for various teas and grow my collection at home.

I soon understood, as many other people have done, that the more you learn about something, the less you want to settle for second best. Whilst living in South-East Asia, I was introduced to TWG Tea and haven’t looked back since. It is simply the most exquisite tea available!

TWG Tea, the finest luxury tea brand in the world, was established in Singapore in celebration of the island’s great history as a trading post for fine teas, spices and fine epicurean products. Their tasters travel thousands of miles across the globe every year, sampling hundreds of teas in search of the most desirable harvests direct from source gardens. Offering the world’s largest tea collection of over 1,000 single-estate, fine harvest teas and exclusive blends from every tea producing country, TWG Tea is internationally recognised as a true innovator with the creation of new varieties of tea every season in collaboration with the world’s most renowned estates. It is constantly sourcing, innovating, expanding and refining the teas in its collection.
Upon my return to Cape Town I resolved to share my pleasure with the South African people and am now able to make TWG Tea available, not only to those travelling the globe, but also to purveyors of finer things locally.

I invite you to savour for yourself what TWG Tea is all about – welcome to the world’s finest teas!
