We. Love. Our. Tea.

We are the tea-loving travel couple @travellingfortea: on the road for five years and married for nearly ten.

A few years ago we tried to get "into" matcha, and really struggled to like it. The price tag and bitterness got our attention, but not in a good way.  This shop is our answer!  

In our travels we have sampled and sourced a collection of antioxidant-rich loose leaf teas that are delicious and affordable, and we are so excited to share them with you!
