You want a Focus on Quality
- we offer only the highest grade tea
With such a vast marketplace for tea, finding a quality production is often a difficult task. We employ a group of experienced Tea Academics who carefully purvey our tea selections. Some members with over 20 years of experience have been able to bring us these fine selections customized for North American tasting notes. With our 5 current tea offerings, we've focused our efforts to bring you the best in-class quality to price ratio for 5 specific teas.
All of our selections must meet these 5 criteria:
Bitterness is the most sensitive of the 5 tastes as a natural defense mechanism for survival. The first taste we guard against is bitterness. The stomach is another major component. A great flavor needs to also be appetizing. I'm sure everyone has tasted a food or beverage which at first tastes good but for some reason wanes midway. Mental clarity, mood, awareness. How does your mood feel after your tea? Although everyone reacts differently to what they consume there are usually general outcomes. Long term mental and physical health. A quality tea should rejuvenate mind and body over the long term.
The overall goal for all of this? Higher Quality of Life.
You want teas Sourced By Experts
- we employ only the "best in class"
Just like a fine wine sourced from a specific growing region our Tea selections are also afforded the same level of professional sourcing. When one thinks of a fine Champagne, we think Champagne, France. When we think of a fine Keemun Black Tea, we think Keemun County, Anhui China. Tea plants take centuries or more to adapt to a specific growing region. The elevation, soil composition, rainfall, temperature, cloud cover, or what is called a terroir must be aligned to grow a balanced flavorful tea.
With a great harvest a tea master will then begin the art of producing the sacred beverage with knowledge passed down generation by generation. All of our tea selections are sourced from the birthplace of each specific region.
Anteeo Tea's in house tea academic team takes great care when evaluating our sources for tea. Each tea gets competitively graded against regionally like producers. After numerous trials our teas are then shortlisted for customers, founders and advisers to approve and provide feedback. Our reason for rigorous testing is to exceed our consumer base expectations and to have them truly taste the difference in our single origin authentic teas.
You want a natural taste
- we partner only with natural growers
We focus on the essence of fine tea and purposely feature tea with no additives, flavorings, blending, spicing or any other constituents which would alter the naturally occurring flavor of the tea plants. As a true Artisan product we only depend on the skill of a tea masters ancient methods and a successful annual harvest to achieve nature’s liquid gold.
We've always believed that it is undeniably difficult to outdo nature when it comes to satisfying our innate taste preferences. We look for farms that give tea plants what they desire in proper amounts so that nature itself can transform these elements into something beneficial for us. We look beyond a stamp or certificate to tell us about quality, by focusing on the history, lineage, management and specialization of the farm.
As a company we fully stand by our sourced-direct farms as if they were our own. Our family of tea communities are continually growing as we find new unique varieties to present to our customers.
