In 1882, Teekanne (which is German for teapot) began as a family-owned company selling teas in Germany. Today, the brand is one of the foremost manufacturers and distributors of premium tea products. Only the highest quality and most flavorful ingredients are gently processed to highlight the properties of the selected teas.
In 1929, the first Teekanne tea in small bags entered the market. The double-chamber tea bags used became hugely popular. Today, the filter paper of the Teekanne flow-through bags is folded and closed without adhesives and the thread is knotted securely to the top of the bag in a patented procedure which avoids the use of aluminum staples.
Teekanne is the #2 brand in the world's fruit and herbal tea market.
