At VIRTUE, we know a good cup of tea. It contains the freshest flavours from around the world, made with only the finest organic ingredients.
We work very closely with tea importers and small-batch growers to build long-lasting relationships and ensure ethical practices from the tea plant to your cup.
And we believe in giving back. Instead of investing in expensive marketing tactics on social media, we choose to reinvest in making VIRTUE Tea a plastic free company and use biodegradable packaging. PLASTIC FREE tea bags of course! Yes, it’s not cheap to be environmentally friendly but we sleep good at night knowing we are doing our part for the planet. Part of our mission with VIRTUE Tea is to leave no trace.
Lastly, we committed donating 1% for the Planet to non-profits working on the front line to protect the environment. We’re all in this together!
