We came across Crusio on a trip to the Netherlands and were immediately excited about their passion and pursuit of the best flavours you can get in tea.
Crusio Teas are sourced through direct trade. Kiona, the tea buyer and owner of Crusio, visits the farmers on their plantations, examines their methods and tastes the freshly harvested tea. If the tea tastes good and meets her expectations of quality then they buy the tea which they then fly into the Netherlands. Here Kiona makes a recipe for each tea and describes the flavour, so that everyone can taste what she has experienced there!
Crusio have a tea master in every country where they buy tea leaves from, including Japan, China, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Every season the search continues as we look to what characteristics we want in a tea, what flavours need to be reached and where those flavours can be found. Every new harvest means new flavour profiles and thus a new assortment for Crusio tea.
The quest literally never stops.
