One of our favourites for tea is Teministeriet – not your usual tea company, this specialty company from Malmö, Sweden are all about creating unique flavours and ranges.
With roots from the island of Formosa, Teministeriet combines age-old tea traditions from the Far East with Scandinavian minimalism, design and flair. For them, tea isn’t just a hot drink to enjoy with breakfast – it’s their way of life, and they pride themselves on being expert tea makers.
Translating in Scandinavian as ‘The Ministry of Tea’, cofounder Kathryn Brown says, “My dream was to take everything I’ve learned about tea while growing up in Taiwan and recreate it with the flavours and design aesthetics of Scandinavia where I now live and love.” In October 2015, the Teministeriet journey started and the first signature tea was produced. Then, in April 2016, the Ayurveda collection was created with 12 blends, inspired by the 5,000 year old Ayurveda principles. Later that year in August, the brand started getting their first samples for Supertea, an organic sachet collection inspired by Superfoods.
They create premium tea products from their tea lab in Sweden and use familiar fragrances like elderflower and champagne, or White Mulberry to create specific teas that are a reflection of their multicultural inspiration. Plus, each and every tea is made from 100% natural ingredients.
