About Teministeriet

Teministeriet is a specialty tea company from Malmö, Sweden.  With roots from the island of Formosa, Teministeriet combines age-old tea traditions of the Far East with Scandinavian minimalism, design and flair.

Of the company ethos, co founder Kathryn Brown’s says, “My dream was to take everything I’ve learned about tea while growing up in Taiwan and recreating it with the flavors and design esthetics of Scandinavia where I now live and love.”

From Chinese Bai-Mu-Dan white tea with familiar fragrances of elderflower and champagne to a green Sencha with wild berries of the north, each tea is a reflection of its multicultural inspiration.

We carry this same sentiment to our partners. Having started with our own humble little tea shop and cafe to growing our business into one of the largest tea companies in the Nordic region, we welcome every opportunity to share our story with you.

“Where there’s tea there’s hope.”

-Arthur Wing Pinero

Legend has it that tea was discovered roughly 5,000 years ago by Chinese Emperor Shen Nung when a single leaf blew into the emperor’s pot of boiling water. He found that not only did the leaf improve the taste of the water, but it seemed to have a stimulative effect on the body. The rest, as they say, is the history of the world’s favorite beverage.
