Bespoke Tea Company is a Mornington Peninsula based tea company.
Local but global in its outlook and experience.
The firm was founded by Tony Laurent, a passionate tea professional who joined the tea industry in the 1980's.
Tony started his tea life as a tea buyer and trader in London with Unilever. Unilever own Lipton, T2, Bushells, PG Tips and many other tea brands . . . and many tea plantations too. So over many years he was privileged to be taught and mentored by the best tea tasters, blenders and tea growers in the business whilst becoming a tea master himself.
After many years working with several leading tea firms - living and working in London, New York, Atlanta, Melbourne, Sydney, the Middle East, Asia and Africa - Tony returned home to Melbourne.
The result is Bespoke Tea Company.
Tony has deliberately selected a limited number of teas. Clean teas. Flavoury teas.
Each with a distinct difference. Limited quantities so we can maintain fresh stock. Much of it flown in by air. And all packed locally in Mornington.
We sell truly premium teas. Tea quality is our focus. Wholesale supplier.
We are not just about pretty tins. We are very real. The actual tea is our passion.
We can be very selective when buying. How come?
Because we can cherry pick. We don't sell massive volumes like the multinationals, which requires buying teas every week. So we can buy when tea bushes are at their absolute seasonal peak, and always deliver the best flavour. And no, we most certainly do not blend in cheap teas so as to lower the costs.
Sure, we offer really fancy Yunnan teas. A top Darjeeling. But we also love what we call "real tea". We drink heaps of real tea. Adding a bit of milk. All day long.
The very, very best "real tea"is here. Like our strong malty Portsea Breakfast, or our flavoury golden Rwanda Breakfast. Great teas if you like to drink plenty of quality tea every day. Perfect to sip and enjoy with friends too. And great if you just want to knock it back to quench a thirst. Hot...or iced.
