Tea Repertoire Carouge

April 30, 2021

Tea Repertoire is a tea company created by Sujin and Pierre-Pascal, a couple from Geneva, who would like to share with you their passion and know-how in the world of teas. Why not try our teas?

Our philosophy

Learning about tea goes through knowledge of the producing regions and the expert methods of the farmers producing the teas. This is why, at Tea Repertoire, we have decided to visit the growers and source the vast majority of our teas directly from the farmers, without any intermediary. We visit regularly and work with our master tea artisans to produce more refined, fresh and original teas. By being closer to the growers, we support fair trade.

We believe that single-origin teas must express the unique character not only of their tea variety, but also of their original culture and terroir, as well as the ancestral know-how perpetuated by their growers. Thus, we travel regularly to the regions of Asia to select the best that the terroir of origin of each region can offer. Fine teas are like fine wines, they bring a balance of naturally unique and delicious aromas and tastes.

Our Awards

In 2019, we were proud to be the tea company with the most awards at the Great Taste Awards. However, we did not stop there, because in 2020 we are the only tea company to have received three times three stars for our products at the Great Taste Awards.

In addition, our producers are recognized for the quality of their teas, they regularly receive national and international awards at tea competitions.
