Tea / Permaculture / Sustainability

It's In Our Nature

Who We Are

TreeThinker creates small batch teas, grown in accordance with permaculture principles on our Oxfordshire, artisan tea garden.

Above all, we pride ourselves on our ethics; working in a way that has a net positive effect on the environment whilst using Fair Trade and sustainable suppliers.

As well as this;

- All our products are plastic free

- All of our teabags are compostable

- All of our products are suitable for vegan

- A share of the income from all product sales is donated to charity

What We Do

Working with the existing ecosystem is the most important part of our work and so, all of the produce that we grow is chosen so that it thrives in the existing ecosystem, rather than the often chosen method of changing the local ecosystem to suit the produce.

The rich local environment of Oxfordshire with its diverse, natural ecosystem enables us to provide the highest quality teas.

All of our teas are harvested and processed on site using tradition, hand rolling techniques to create a unique and fuller flavour.

How we do it

We do all this using the wonferful techniques and practices of permaculture, including:

  • Rewilding
  • Traditional farming techniques
  • Mulching (green manure)
  • Polyculture
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Making use of plants traditionally considered weeds
