The German Teaway is born ...

... with one goal in mind: providing delicious & healthy herbal tea blends of the highest quality to the UK to make you feel good. TGT offers loose leaf tea quality in the convenience of a tea bag.


How it began...

As a consumer, we were looking for authentic, natural herbal tea products in the UK ourselves, but our search remained unsuccesful. While the UK offers a huge variety of black tea, the variety of herbal tea is limited. In particular, multi-herbal tea blends or teas with a wellbeing purpose which go beyond the peppermint-, camomile- or roiboos-based product varieties were not available. Our mission was born.

On German herbal teas...

Our herbal tea blends are produced in Germany, where herbs and herbal teas have a long tradition. Teas made of herbs were first mentioned around 800 AD in the scripts of a monastery on the island Reichenau in the Lake Constance. In the 12th century, Hildegard von Bingen (or St. Hildegard), an esteemed advocate for scientific research, was one of the earliest promoters of the use of herbal medicine to treat ailments and wrote several books on the subject, including Physica, circa 1150. Our current main supplier was founded more than 200 years ago by a pharmacist in Southern Germany and is family-owned ever since.
