From the leaf to your cup...


Selection of teas and infusions.
Selection of teas and infusions

All our teas and the plants used in infusions are selected through the seasons by our buyers, directly from our producers. All products are chosen for both their visual appearance and their organoleptic qualities. Compliance tests are then commissioned from a COFRAC-accredited external, independent laboratory before any orders are placed.

Our accessories.
Our accessories

We take great care in our choice of accessories, which are sourced from small manufacturers and artisans. Often an expression of traditional expertise, they are also the fruit of a joint innovation and development process between our teams and manufacturers.
Regular audits are carried out among our suppliers to ensure a strict set of specifications is respected.

Once received, batches are placed in quarantine while we carry out two more tests. The first is an organoleptic test completed by our specialists (taste, smell and visual). The second comprises a series of analyses at a COFRAC-accredited, independent, external lab.
