Thieves’ Tea

There’s always a story

Limited Batch. Loose Leaf. Thieves' Tea.

Tea to be brewed & shared. Every sip of ethically sourced single plantation tea has an impact
Handpicked Thieves' Tea

Loose-Leaf Tea

Thieves’ Tea is named after an age-old tea-pickers practice that’s known to produce the best quality tea. Plucking the finest tips, pressing them by hand, then sharing the brew, and the days stories with those they care about most. In other words, Thieves’ Tea is about doing things the right way.

We love this ethos, because we believe it’s important to do things right, too. For us, that means knowing exactly where all our tea is grown, and who grows it. It means giving our expert pickers the respect (and pay) they deserve.

And it means sharing with you the story of how this tea came to be.

Authentic Thieves' Tea

We don’t think there is anyone who would know how to brew tea better than the pluckers who harvest the leaves daily.

So… We bring to you our Authentic Thieves’ Tea. Freshly plucked tea leaves are pounded leaves in a stone Vangedi by the pluckers themselves in the traditional Sri Lankan way, the way they make tea for themselves in their own homes.

The result is one of our favourite teas! Full of flavour and easy to drink with or without milk. 

Note: This is not a Thieves Oil Tea

Happy Tea Drinkers

“The lemongrass tisane is absolutely pure! I love the story of Ashok inventing the lemongrass cutting machine. It adds to the authenticity and uniqueness of the tea”. Neal, AUS

“Authentic Thieves Tea tastes and smells just like Sri Lanka. It’s like I have gone back to visit. How can so much flavour be in this loose leaf tea compared to tea bags?” Alice, NZ

“I had never heard of the natural tea bags until I discovered Thieves Tea. What a treat! I was able to use them 3 times without loss of flavour.” Naomi, NZ

Doing Good

The Thieves' Advantage

Doing Good

The Thieves' Advantage

Doing good has never tasted better. Each of the tea gardens we work with has been responsibly sourced, what does that mean? We ask questions and listen to the answers, there is always more to learn! We get to know the owners and the workers, we don’t just want to know about the quality of the tea (although that has to be fantastic) we want to be sure that each bag of tea we sell is doing good for the local community where our favourite tea plantations are.

This in itself is no small task but we like to aim high! .
