The Tetley Story
In 1837, two brothers, Joseph and Edward Tetley started selling tea. A partnership with Joseph Ackland in 1856 resulted in the trio forming Joseph Tetley & Company, Wholesale Tea Dealers.
Since the 1960s, we’ve developed and nurtured people’s love of drinking tea by releasing new and exciting products like the round tea bag introduced in 1989 which quickly became a recognizable brand trademark.
A truly global brand, our teas are enjoyed in over 40 countries and are available in a variety of flavours and formats made to accompany all of life’s moments.
We’re proud of being Canada’s #1 tea brand. With 186 years of experience, tea is totally our thing.
Our goal is simple: we make teas that help Canadians live better every day. Whether it’s kickstarting your mornings with a cup of well-loved Orange Pekoe, making it easier (and tastier) to get your daily vitamins and minerals with Super Teas, or helping you effortlessly hit your water goals with Cold Infusions. There’s a tea for every moment.
Cheers to teatime however you most enjoy it.
We’re committed to ensuring a better life for our farmers, better tea for you, and a better environment for everyone.
We’re one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership who are committed to improving the conditions of farmers growing our tea around the world. The Ethical Tea Partnership’s vision is to create a socially just, environmentally sustainable, and thriving tea industry.
100% of our black, green, and rooibos teas are Rainforest Alliance certified. The green frog seal on our packs indicates that our farmer’s plantations have been audited against rigorous certification standards that require meaningful steps toward long-term environmental, social, and economic sustainability. By purchasing our teas, you're helping support the livelihoods of farmers and contributing to positive change.
We’re proud to be a part of Tea 2030, a partnership between some of the largest tea companies, sustainability organizations, and academics. Together members identify long-term challenges of the tea industry and work together to develop solutions and ensure a sustainable global industry.
We’re longtime supporters of the Canadian Cancer Society and the breast cancer cause, a disease that impacts many individuals and communities across Canada. Being a supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society is our way of providing a bit of warmth for the many Canadians and their families affected by breast cancer.
Since 2001, we’ve contributed over $850,000 to the breast cancer cause.
We’re proud to support UNICEF UK as part of a five-year program in Malawi dedicated to helping young children aged 0-5. This partnership will provide quality early childhood development services to one of the main tea growing areas in Malawi thus helping vulnerable children get the most from their education.
UNICEF plans to build two early childhood development centres in South Malawi where many of the tea estates are located. There are also plans to support parents and caregivers by offering help and advice on parenting, care, and the development of their children. Supporting children in their early years is an important way to help break the cycle of poverty and create meaningful and long-lasting change.
