About The Tea Merchant


Established in 2009 after two years of searching for the best teas

The Tea Merchant commenced importing tea into South Africa some three years ago in order to satisfy a small group of tea lovers. This has grown into a business today that is passionate about quality tea, teapots and accessories, supplying the tea trade as well as the gift sector with top quality products that are not exorbitant.
