WHERE DID IT ALL START?
Our friendship goes all the way to being little kiddies living in the same neighbourhood and going to Sunday School together. But we grew up, travelling separately to far-flung countries and drinking many a brew. It was not until a common friend invited us to a breakfast in Helsinki—and Mirka got served a cup of tea not worth paying for—when we started to talk about changing the tea culture in restaurants and cafeterias. We wanted to ignite love for tea in the same places that had well-trained baristas pouring cappuccinos, espressos and creating wonderful latte art for their customers.
One thing lead to another, and when we dug deeper to tea, we noticed that most tea blends offered on the market were filled with industrial flavourings, artificial aromas and additives. We knew we had to do something, so we started making our own tea blends. NORD-T, Nordic tea, was born out of our love for the forests and fields of northern lands. We started to make tea blends where absolu-tea-ly all of the ingredients come from the most skillful farmer of them all—Mother Nature.
