Tea… is a marvellous adventure. Alfredo Carrai's fascination with tea led him to go on numerous adventures to find the rarest teas and the finest harvests. His travels introduced him to the precious teas of Yunnan, the plantations of Darjeeling, and cultivation of the shaded Gyokuro tea leaves. After more than fifty years the La Via del Té family business is still inspired by Alfredo's adventurous spirit and passion for high quality tea. From sourcing the best tea crops to blending and packaging, all is carried out with utmost care, balancing innovation and Florentine tradition.
