Argo Tea’s Garden Direct Collection was launched in 2016 and has been a tea lover’s dream ever since. We’ve traveled the globe to curate this collection of Single Estate teas from the world’s premier tea-growing regions. Each tea possesses the character and subtleties of the unique terroir and climate from where it was grown. Argo Tea’s Garden Direct Collection brings together twenty four teas from twelve different countries around the world, spanning from India to Burkina Faso, from Japan to South Africa, from Sri Lanka to China.
What does Single Estate mean? Think of it as the tea equivalent to single origin coffee. Each of these teas was grown on one single tea estate. This not only means that we can ensure each tea is grown with the care and attention of the best tea growers in the world, but it also means we are able to ensure that each tea estate is providing positive working conditions for their employees while using sustainable farming methods. Some estates, such as the Ambootia Tea Garden in India that grows our First Flush Darjeeling Tea, use state of the art biodynamic farming methods that allow them to have a completely sustainable ecosystem on their estates.
Argo Tea’s Garden Direct Collection, just like all of our loose-leaf teas, are bought directly from the growers in order to get the highest quality tea. These direct relationships with growers provides us with the insight and understanding we need to ensure the best teas, going as far as knowing exactly which tea field will produce the best flavor.
Each tea is available in a reusable glass bottle, each lovingly labeled with designs inspired by regional art, flowers, and other iconic patters of the specific country where the tea was grown. This tea collection is perfect for those who are looking to dive deep into the world of tea or those looking for a more traditional cup of tea.
