Our Tea Blender
Meet Our Tea Blender
Because Bruetta started with a great idea rather than tea itself (our innovative BruLid with integrated filter) we were free to search out the very best tea supplier we could find. We consulted many experts, learned what factors dictate quality and the art of tea blending, and mostly, we tasted for ourselves.
One industry leader we consulted blew us away with his knowledge, his personal relationships with small tea farmers around the world, his absolute dedication to the craft, his personality, and—above all—how absolutely full of flavor his tea tasted. Even those of us who didn’t drink tea were drinking his tea.
So we convinced him to be our supplier! He’s such a gem, we’d like to keep him to ourselves but we don’t think that should stop you from getting to know him too.
Below are some quotes from an interview with our tea blender that answer common questions we get about our tea, but you can click through to the full interview where his insight and passion for tea blending shine through.
Meet Our Blender, Pt. 1 – Why Bruetta?
"What is so exciting about your lid is that it makes it easier to enjoy that quality moment anywhere, anytime. With the BruLid, suddenly the quickest, easiest way to make tea is also that quality, crafted taste---and that is exciting. That is new." Read more...
Meet Our Blender, Pt. 2 – What Makes Bruetta Tea “Premium?”
"You’d be surprised at how deliberate we are. You can go to a flavor and fragrance company and say, “I need a vanilla” and they’ll ask “Well, do you want a French vanilla? Do you want this? Do you want that? There are well over 30 variations of the “vanilla” theme!" Read more...
Meet Our Blender Pt. 3 – What about Fair Trade, Organic, Heavy Metals, & Pesticides?
"Organic certification can generally only occur if the garden that is growing the tea also manufactures the tea… and the small farmers that supply the factories can’t afford certification. They are tiny. They don’t produce enough for that... And for some growers, the requirement smacks a little of colonialism.” Read more...
