What is 'tea in mind'?
Tea in mind allows you to choose a tea based on your current emotion, alongside a concept of 3 minute tea routines empowering you to pause, re-balance and create a calming space for your mind…
Our condensed 'tea in mind' map shows which emotions relate to each tea type, but be sure to download the full 'tea in mind' map below as a simple guide to your 3 minute tea routines!
We are incredibly proud of our plastic-free packaging within our loose leaf tea caddys, refills, sachets and teabags!
These cardboard tubes have an aluminium top and are fully recyclable.
Our loose leaf tea is packaged inside them with a material called NatureFlex. NatureFlex is a biodegradable material created from wood-pulp and this is heat sealed to secure the tea inside...
Since the very beginning, sustainability has always been at the heart of everything we do here at eteaket.
The wonders of tea are made possible by the natural world, and we want to protect it.
From the packaging we use, to the business practices we employ, we are constantly streamlining and staying at the forefront of any innovation made available to us.
