STORIES FROM THE SILK ROAD COLLECTION
We’re taking a celebratory journey back down the road once travelled into the world of tea with our Silk Road collection. This collection commemorates and celebrates the ancient trade routes that first tethered the East to the West.
The Silk Road symbolises the weaving together of ideas, cultures, and some of the world’s most precious commodities through trade一including tea. Each tea carries with it a story, a unique identity inherited from the land it passed through.
Whatever you choose, we hope you join us on our epicurean journey back through the Silk Road today.

The inspiration behind The Tea Centre’s Silk Road collection
The Tea Centre strives to go above and beyond to provide our sippers with the perfect gifts. This year, we decided to go back in time as well. Our Silk Road collection embarks on a trip down the original overland trade routes that first enabled the spread of tea throughout the world.
The Silk Road symbolises the weaving together of ideas, cultures, & some of the world’s most precious commodities through trade一including tea. History tells us that tea meandered through China, traversed India, scaled mountains & bustled by kaleidoscopic bazaars on the backs of camels & caravans before landing in European hands.
Going from east to west, the story of tea first began in China and was exchanged for the likes of gold, precious furs, and even horses as it travelled via trade across Europe, Africa, and Asia. Many beautiful teas like Russian Caravan, Pu-erh, and Yunnan FOP find their origins on the Silk Road.
