Collection: Suki Tea Makers

Based in Belfast, SUKI - Tea Makers ethically source and blend loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from all over the world. Their commitment to quality is reflected in responsible sourcing, great taste and delivering the very best customer experiences.

Belfast Boutique Loose Leaf Tea Blender, Suki Tea, first set up in 2005 by business partners Anne Irwin and Oscar Woolley, has become a strong contender in the UK’s Loose Leaf tea market.

TEA, FUN, MONEY!

In 2005, Annie and Oscar set up a stand at a small Farmer’s Market in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Touring about the Island of Ireland they visited farmers markets and craft fairs and with the very generous help of their friends hit the music festival scene with their Tea & Toast set up. Having a strong brand identity and keeping true to their goals was the focus at this early stage. The business plan was. . . Tea, Fun, Money. 

AND SO IT BEGAN…

Having both wandered through Asia, their eyes were opened to a world of really (really) good ethically-sourced teas, which they wanted to share with everyone. Launched with the aim to provide their customers with the finest loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from around the world; the pair made ethical sourcing their priority whilst delivering a quality and fresh product. And so it began...

SOURCING AND BLENDING THE WORLD’S BEST TEA

A decade later, the Belfast-based team still ethically sources and blends their big, fat, juicy, loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from all over the world. Today, Annie and Oscar still lead the team, and they keep winning award after award for both product and company, because they're still focused on that same job – sourcing and blending the world’s best tea.

QUALITY IS DEFINED BY WHAT THEY SOURCE...

At Suki Tea, they have always believed quality is defined by what they source and deliver. They won’t settle for anything that is second best and this has been the driving force behind the vision since the very beginning. Suki Tea's commitment to quality is reflected in responsible sourcing, great taste and delivering the very best customer experiences.

Suki Tea are fiercely proud of what they have accomplished and as they embark on their 15th year in the industry, the knowledge and experiences gained so far are reflected into the new look and feel of SUKI TEA. So as they continue to dedicate themselves to people, plant and planet, they move from Suki Tea to SUKI - Tea Makers after all, it takes a team of expert tea aficionados to do what they do.

TEA THAT NOT ONLY TASTES GOOD, IT DOES GOOD.

At Suki Tea Makers, they are fiercely proud of their award-winning brand, awards for not just great tasting loose leaf teas, but also for doing business the right way. Operating in a more socially and environmentally conscious manner is the cornerstone of every business decision they make and everything they do.

Businesses have incredible powers and with that comes incredible responsibility. Suki Tea Makers are in a position to show leadership and radically change and influence consumer behaviours. Suki Tea Makers are serious about their responsibilities and that’s why they hold themselves to the high standards of independent certification.

SERIOUS SOURCING

You probably already know how seriously Suki Tea Makers take the sourcing of their tea.

Not a single leaf or ingredient comes into their blending and production facility without them having personally selected the garden or scrutinised the source. Over the years, the more sourcing trips they embarked on the bigger the opportunities for the business to make a positive impact quickly became obvious. Seeing things with their own eyes is so important. Only by doing that can they talk about what they do with integrity and authenticity. They could see a direct line from decision to purchase from specific gardens to how it can benefit the tea pickers, growers, their families and their wider community.

That’s why Suki Tea Makers advocate buying Fairtrade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified teas.

MORE THAN A STAMP...

With many of the world’s tea plantation workers still living and working in a constant cycle of poverty and sustainability being pushed up the agenda in recent years, embrace the Suki Tea Makers mission:

‘to build a global community of loose leaf tea drinkers, an appreciation society of the ritual in great tasting, HONEST tea’ Suki Tea Makers are more than just a stamp…

SOURCING & ETHICS

Favouring ethical supplier practices and operating in a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable manner are the cornerstones of everything they do at SUKI Tea HQ.

PEOPLE, PLANT, PLANET

Suki Tea Makers care about people, plant and planet. From open and responsible sourcing, to protecting the farmers who grow the tea and their families, and by selecting only teas that have been hand plucked they ensure that the integrity of the tea plants remains intact.

Favouring ethical supplier practices and operating in a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable manner are the cornerstones of everything they do. Where possible, they aim to offer teas and products that have been sourced from accredited farms, gardens and providers.

TRIPLE CERTIFIED

Suki Tea Makers were the first Tea company to introduce Triple Certified Tea (Fairtrade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance) into their range with their award-winning Earl Grey Blue Flower and Darjeeling. In a range of almost 50 loose leaf teas, 40% carry Fairtrade, Organic or Rainforest Alliance certifications and currently Fairtrade teas account for over 70% of overall sales. 

“Through sourcing certified teas like Fairtrade and Organic, we can be confident that our tea producers are operating sustainably, while at the same time improving the lives and working conditions of their staff and their families as well as their local environment and of course, the quality of the tea itself.” Anne Irwin, Managing Director.

ETHICAL PURCHASING

The popularity of these teas is testament to an overall growing consumer demand for ethical purchasing, a trend they actively encourage among the community by providing an ethically-sourced, great tasting, high quality cuppa. So sit back, relax and be confident that you too have joined the community of loose leaf tea drinkers, that you are doing your bit to support people, plant and planet by enjoying a cup of SUKI tea.
