We are Dave, Ruth (& Portia) 

Shaking up the way you think about tea!


We love tea. Not just any old tea but high-quality organic and sustainably farmed tea curated from remote corners of the world and combined to create unique blends. Searching for caffeine-free alternatives while going through fertility treatment, we realised how many wonderful healthy beneficial teas were around the world from ancient shamanic herbs to ayurvedic remedies.

We enjoy the ritual every day of choosing which tea suits our mood and needs. We created The Tea Thief through our passion for exploring and discovering new blends and herbs. 

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, we are dedicated to enhancing lives through experiencing our premium teas.

Our teas have been carefully selected for their taste and health properties. We have spend years researching, tasting, blending and brewing to bring you some of nature's best remedies. 

Our values are to ensure we only buy directly from growers or from suppliers who we know are ethical, with sustainable practices, and to provide organic and wild teas while ensuring every tea is beneficial for your health, body, mind and spirit. 

Please be sure to check back regularly to find new blog posts, new teas and to learn more about this incredibly beneficial beverage.
