A love of tea has been passed through several generations of Jamie's family. His grandfather was a tea planter in India and then set out on horseback in Papua New Guinea to look for highland areas to establish tea in the 1950's, later growing single-estate teas in Kenya and Uganda.
Jamie's own tea path really began many years ago in a small shop in Malaysia, where two old tea masters served the best tea he had ever tasted. Since then, bringing the joy of tea to others by sourcing and sampling unique tea from all around the world, has been an ongoing adventure.
