Originating from Ceylon, home to the world’s finest tea, we are teakruthi and hope to inspire a healthier lifestyle through the perfect ‘cup-a-tea’. Tea is in our culture and we know that perfection begins at the source. Our teas are thus hand plucked and ethically sourced from the world’s finest plantations in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), arriving at your doorstep garden fresh. Our teas have no artificial or GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms).
Plantation Fresh Guaranteed
Like most natural products, tea tastes best when fresh. However most teas on the market are far from it, taking nearly a year to reach your cup as they pass through a supply-chain of multiple middlemen and storage houses. As your tea makes this long journey from the plantation to your home, it gradually goes flat losing its natural flavor and aroma. As such some common tea brands chemically enhance their teas with natural and artificial flavoring or GMO’s.
teakruthi delivers teas direct from the Plantation to your doorstep within three months. Due to the short lead-time and direct sourcing model our teas taste delicious with no artificial additives. How do we do this?
- We eliminate the middlemen and source directly from some of Sri Lanka’s finest estate factories
- Our just-in-time demand algorithms allow us to order tea supply only as needed, reducing storage stock and wastage
- Sri Lanka is the only source market that grows tea all year around, eliminating the need for us to stock supply to service off-season orders
Taste Tea at its Finest
teakruthi serves only the finest of pure Ceylon tea hand plucked and sourced from select plantations in Sri Lanka’s high-, mid- and low-grown regions. Their complex flavors and aromas are delicately balanced by our experienced Tea Sommeliers to create a range of uniquely distinctive flavors. We process our teas in a climate-controlled facility and ship them to you vacuum packed in an aluminum pouch, protecting it from sunlight. Your tea thus arrives fresh with its true flavor and aromas intact. Brew a cup of teakruthi and enjoy a uniquely sublime olfactory experience.

Wellness Benefits of Tea
Doctors and nutritionists agree that drinking tea daily supports a healthy lifestyle. Tea is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols and has been linked to lower risk of heart disease, cancer, and other health problems.

Sadly most of today’s leading tea brands (some might be in your kitchen cupboard) include harmful chemical additives to boost flavor and shelf life of their teas. At teakruthi we bring you the goodness of tea free from any harmful chemical additives.
