Hi, I am Justina. In 2013 I travelled to Japan from Luxembourg where took part in a Japanese culture class. That was the day when I discovered a real, full of flavour green tea and experienced a tea ceremony. It changed my life because it gave me inspiration and fascination.
I have been one of those people who buy an ordinary tea in a teabag (packed in a plastic bag) in a normal grocery store. Well, let’s be honest who does not do it? Tea in Europe is kind of a necessity, an ordinary thing, not a magical ingredient that makes our day a bit more enjoyable or…changes our life. No wonder, as tea was introduced late in Europe and has not won such a strong tradition as in Asia.
If you look at the ordinary tea sold in a any grocery shop..let’s be honest it is a disgrace. Packaged in a plastic, moreover the famous teabags contain microplastic that will affect your body.
And there is more…big tea corporations use very unethical methods to collect tea crops by exploiting families and children in countries such as China, India, Sri Lanka. At the same time, big tea companies contribute to monoculture, fertilising land and soil damage on a big scale. As there is not much environmental protection in such countries, those companies easily get a way with immoral practices.
Therefore, I decided to be a part of the change and created YaTea.

The origins of Yatea
There is a meaning behind the name Yatea. In Sanskrit dictionary “Yā (या)” means to find out, discover. We also refer to Japanese meaning of “Ya (家)” which means home, house, family. Therefore we create a tea that is intended for discovery especially for those who want to dive deep into the world of fine tea and tea art. Secondly, it is a tea for home, a tea that should be enjoyed with family and friends and find a special place at your home.
