Founder & Certified Tea Master

Alison Dillon is one of just a handful of Certified Tea Masters, and was among the first to earn this qualification.

"Our palates have been putting up with inferior, mass produced tea for far too long. In the liquid world, we readily appreciate and understand the vast quality spectrum that differentiates a cask wine and a vintage bottle of aged red, or instant coffee and single origin fresh-roasted beans. There’s a tea spectrum too. But most of us are languishing at the wrong end of it."

Meet the Masters

Our master artisan growers and farmers have spent a lifetime perfecting their skills. It’s because of these very talented people that our collection is incredible.

They deserve credit and recognition. Their stories are fascinating.

From 73-year-old Mrs Pei in Zehijiang, to the Tao family who have pet peacocks that roam wild through the tea bushes – these are but some of the stories we drink.
