About AveTea

Heritage Rediscovered as we relive the glory of the unique flavours of India.

India has been known for centuries, to possess an eclectic collection of exotic and hidden flavors when it comes to tea. Our endeavor is to explore this magical land, seek out the best, most exclusive flavours from small tea growers. To bring the best of teas, to your fingertips, while enabling these artisan farmers to reach the global markets they deserve to be seen in. 
These 'master tea-men' are not enamoured with newfangled, chemical ways of cultivation, but continue their established age-old methods of farming their land. This was an amazing bonus to us on our mission - to have access to mesmerizing flavours, that are completely untainted and organic. We associate only with such artisans.

Products

We associate only with the best, who are as committed to purity & quality in cultivation, as we are to pristine flavors.

When we formulated AveTea, our intention was simple. Explore, Discover and Associate with the best only. We spent 4 years to explore, taste 100+ flavors, improvised production methods to finally present you with the Best. These are the Chosen Eight - handpicked to let you explore the various "kinds" of flavour.
Varying from hand-rolled green to preserve the freshness of flavour; pan fried to release nutty flavours; smoked exotica - which is an experience by itself. While we have discovered the symphony of various flavors, these are few which deserved to be showcased. Tap on images below for more details if you are on a mobile device

SMOKED EXOTICA

An unforgettable blend of smoky, earthy flavours, this tea is tightly packed into bamboo, and smoked for 4 years. The result is a brew that invigorates the senses with just the right touch of smoothness blending with the distinct bass tones that are a throwback to ancient times; finishing off with a light earthy flavour of its native soil. The perfect cup to rejuvenate a zest for life, and deep conversations.

Without a doubt, one of the best of the 'green' from Assam.

Royal Delight

A taste of elegance unparalleled, and evolved distinctions. This tea reveals a pale, lemon-colored brew when the leaves are infused; and a rich honey-amber liquor. Flavors are unique to the Darjeeling First Flush family – a fragrant floral bouquet, with hints of citrusy fruitiness. A robust, lively and mood uplifting sip.

EXQUISITE DELIGHT

A finely handcrafted Assam black tea from a section of wild seed plant that grows in a small naturally grown and chemical-free tea farm in Koliapani, Assam. The brew produces a sweet fruity liquor, followed by notes of spices and wild herbs with a very subtle briskness. One of the finest produce we have encountered so far from the 'wild' section of the garden.

Enticing Green

Relaxing, mellow green tea, from farms in peaceful, picturesque Coonoor in the Nilgiri mountains, South India. Two leaves and bud, twirled together to lock in the nutrients and freshness. The end result is an infusion that’s mildly astringent and crisp the first time around. Subsequent infusions release a smooth sip, with a sweet aftertaste.

Emperor's Class

One of the best Tippy teas from the Signature Assam Golden black tea variety. The Emperor's Class is a harvest of the twin-leaf, bud combination taken from a very special, small organic tea farm in Latumoni.

The flavour released when brewed is fruity - with whiffs of apricot, raisin, peach and honey flavoured aftertones. The malty body mellows to house these fruity notes in this full-bodied brew. A unique, handcrafted offering that is produced in extremely limited quantities of approximately 4 kg a day.

Emperor's Choice

A fine crafted second flush, hand-rolled black tea from the most preferred clone grown in the mountains of Darjeeling know as AV2. This is one of the smoothest Highlander black teas, with very low briskness that makes an extremely flavourful cup filled with floral and fruity notes. Prominent and very distinct muscatel punches can also be experienced throughout the cup, before it signs off with an oaken, woody finish. These AV2 clones are known for producing some of the finest, most exceptional white teas during Spring and Autumn.

Why AveTea ?

We're Tea Lovers

We understand good tea simply because we've been intensely and intimately connected to tea for decades now. Some of us are second generation tea connoisseurs. And know good flavours and quality the minute we smell and taste them.

Organic Growth

It matters deeply to us that the last of the artisan farmers, who are cultivating tea organically be nurtured and supported to continue their work as long as possible. We know that an ethical, win-win situation for all is possible for all participants in this process.

Handcrafted

We've made a deliberate and conscious decision to shift from a mechanized pace, and tap into older and deeper roots, that have been carved out by the lives and times of generations of artisanal farmers who have blended into the elements, experiences and flavours of the land that they come from. These are the narratives our flavours hold.

Small Growers

We explore India for you. To locate the best produce from Small Growers. To ensure that their creativity does not go unheard, unseen and most importantly unsavoured. We work to assist and grow with them.

Exotic Tea

We continuously explore and improvise the production methods of our tea to ensure that we always, always have nothing but the best. So far, we've experimented with more than 100 flavors to arrive at these chosen Eight.

We're Consistent

We ensure that the difference in flavours, that naturally occurs across seasonal changes, is minimal. Each time you taste a product from us, it will more or less be similar to what you experienced when you first tasted it!
