who are you?
Muutea is an organic tea company, passionate about beautiful design. But we are much more. We are directly in contact with farmers from all over Black Sea. We travel thousands of miles from farm to farm to find the highest quality tea leaves. Muutea comes directly from tea farms to your cup; collected and designed with passion and the love of tea.
what do you manifest?
Our mission is to inspire people who love tea. We encourage them to explore the world of tea on their own and express their findings to the others. No matter from which walk of life you are, there is a type of tea you would love. And we offer it. Tea time should bring joy,excitement and fun. Little details make it a happy experience. Beautifully designed graphics by talented artists, Muutea is built with organic tea blends, providing joy for minds with big imaginations.
where do you get the tea?
Every year from late March through mid April we schedule our flights to Black Sea where we met best growers from Fatsa, Giresun, Araklı and Artvin. These dedicated growers are almost fanatics about tea. According to 2004 records, they produced 205,500 tonnes of tea which makes 6.4% of the world’s total tea production and it has been growing since. When it comes to tea, our farmers are like sommeliers in a humid basement winery.

what kind of tea leaf do you sell?
Newsflash! There is only one kind of tea plant on Earth and it’s called Camellia Sinensis (Latin), an evergreen shrub native to Asia. Every tea leaf is the same when the farmers collect it. What makes different tea types is the processes the leaves undergo.
