Tea & Sympathy specialises in single-estate teas from small scale gardens in China, Taiwan, Northern Thailand and Northern Vietnam. Just like wine, these unblended single origin teas offer a diversity of flavour characteristics that fully reflect all the elements of the terroir in that particular season. In addition, many of the teas are produced in small quantities and selected carefully season by season.
