Tea -
the most beautiful natural product on earth...
















Your tea takes a long way from the tea garden to the cup. Every single step is of high importance for the quality we place so much value on at TeeGschwendner. It is picked, wilted, sometimes roasted or steamed, fermented, dried, sorted, packed and shipped.

Once it arrives in Meckenheim, it is tasted and sensory tested by our Tea Tasters, passes through quality assurance in the laboratory, is blended and packaged for our shops and customers and finally arrives at your home. 

Arrive, feel good, enjoy, warm yourself, refresh yourself, rave, relax, let yourself be stimulated - you can experience all this with our teas. Small oases in the daily routine, wonderful tea moments!
