When I was training to become a tea sommelier, I discovered that for the longest time most tea produced across South Asia has been sold as a commodity, for the lowest price and greatest volume to the detriment of the land and the local tea growing communities.
But a loose-leaf revolution has been quietly brewing and a new generation of independent tea growers in India, Sri Lanka and Nepal are taking their teas to the next level, producing delicious teas that cover a wide range from black, green, white and oolong.
And so, the Karma Tea Co. was created to bring you the very best of these single-garden whole leaf teas- all cultivated sustainably, carefully crafted for flavour by skilled tea makers and not readily available elsewhere. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

TEA FOR EVERYDAY RITUALS
We understand that tea is much more than just a cup. Tea can transport you to another world and give you a moment to pause during the day.
We believe these moments are special and deserve well crafted tea. We’ve tasted a wide variety teas across South Asia and have curated our range for their distinctive tastes.
Try one. It’s worth staying in for….
BREW A GREENER CUP
We all know how good drinking tea is for you. But what's essential for a great tea is how it’s grown. The terroir and the soil’s health have a huge impact on the vitality of the tea plant, and a tea’s taste.
We believe that sustainability and quality go hand-in-hand, and so we source teas from gardens that are committed to regenerative and sustainable farming practices.
The ethos of reducing our impact on the planet is carried throughout our business from sourcing to packaging.
