From the leaf to your cup...
THE SELECTION OF OUR PRODUCTS
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.
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.
At our factory, we have developed special optical sorting and dusting equipment for our raw ingredients. Delicate items are sorted by hand.
All our tea and infusion recipes are designed and balanced by our flavour chemist.
With the help of a tasting panel, a development committee tastes and selects all the creations we release for sale.
PACKAGING OF YOUR INFUSION
Our teas and infusions are unique recipes available loose, boxed and in sachets. The loose leaf format is the most environmentally friendly choice.
An original DAMMANN Frères invention, Cristal® bags are made exclusively from 100% PLA, a corn starch-derived polymer that biodegrades when industrially composted.
Individually wrapped Cristal® sachets are ideal for those who want to be able to enjoy their favorite tea or infusion anywhere, any time and in perfect condition.
CREATION OF ASSORTED BOX SETS
Wherever possible, we use recyclable material for our boxes, which are designed to be reusable (metal, paper, cardboard).
For our wooden boxes, we prioritize suppliers that are FSC-certified.
Although most of our boxes are assembled in our workshops, as part of our commitment to social inclusion, DAMMANN Frères also works with government-run initiatives designed to provide work to people with disabilities known as ESATs. We carry out an audit of their working environment before beginning any partnership.
