Since the inception of English Tea Shop, we’ve had a laser eye focus on addressing grassroot problems faced by our farmers who source the organic ingredients found in our tea.

In light of this, we are very much looking forward to celebrating and supporting the upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight, which without doubt have given a global voice to farmers.

We’re delighted to announce our rebrand which re-vitalises not only our packaging, but how we communicate and connect with all our customers.

Our new packaging design unites our new brandmark, the Teapot and Mandala to create a powerful and seamless design system that celebrates the individuality of our blends and the strength of our range.

In September, we hosted our first ever Organic Forum discussing the importance of organic farming, educating our fellow community in the hope of becoming an entirely sustainable Sri Lanka.

Our vision of “celebrating communities from farm to cup” has encouraged other businesses and local communities to engage in dialogue on how the Sri Lankan organic industry can move forward to even greater lengths.

The Moringa plant is continuing to grow in popularity, gaining the “superfood” credentials for its highly nutritious profile and powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tissue-protective properties amongst a host of other benefits.

Often called the “Miracle Tree”, Moringa is one of nature’s most healthy and nutritious foods.

No other hot beverage is used as a gift like tea and the industry has an exciting opportunity to emerge as a favourite in the ‘gift yourself’ and ‘gift your loved ones’ categories.

Ahead of the exciting Christmas season we’ve reworked some of our signature blends that are set to be the firecracker under all Christmas trees.
