My Story

My name is Archie, and I have been lucky enough to grow up in the midst of the first and only tea estate in the UK, where I have seen a few Camelia shrubs planted in the garden flourish into acres of bushes.

Now that these bushes are turning 21 (and incidentally so am I) I feel that it is time to start a new chapter by creating new drinking experiences and sharing my story.

Yes we drink tea everyday,

but are we making the most of it?

With this question at the front of my mind I set out to combine my passion for three things:

Yes, tea is something we drink every day, but are we making the most of it?

Where we come from, tea is in our blood (well not quite) but growing up on the UK’s only tea Estate, it might as well be.

As you may have gathered we are the first UK grown iced tea brand and we are very proud to say so.

R-chi is not your

conventional cuppa...

In fact, it is a totally unique Iced Tea. R-chi uses natural British grown tea alongside British Manuka leaves to yield a refreshing and healthy tea-based soft drink to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.

One of my desires from the very beginning was to create a distinctly British product, but what was more important is that it had to taste good. In fact, it had to taste incredible whilst at the same time maximising the natural, antioxidant packed health benefits of the leaves.

The long months of tasting and experimenting have yielded a range of drinks that I believe do just that. I am so excited to share R-chi with you, and hope you enjoy each sip as much as I do!

Join the par-tea!
