About Us

We're a family business based in the UK.

Janet & Clive established Aurora, in 1997 with just a small selection of leaf teas and yixing teapots imported directly from China.  In 2000 they set up a website, sourcing teas from some of the world's most respected tea merchants - providing the highest standards in quality control, continuity and reliability.  Originally they were part of Brupaks UK Limited.

Reason why they chose to sell leaf tea?   They were already selling kombucha making equipment and in order to understand the product we tried to make it.  The recipe called for leaf tea, but we couldn't find any 'good' leaf tea in 1996 so imported a few kilos from China. 

During 2020, Sarah their daughter in law became involved in processing orders and helping out. In early 2022, She become the sole Director.

We hope everyone who buys our teas enjoys them.  We proud of what we do and love the teas that we have.
