Teekanne has been preparing and selling tea since 1882. The company is still family-owned, delivering premium tea under their own stringent quality controls, which exceed the already-strict German Food regulations. Many people are familiar with this tea because of its unique folded flow-through tea bags that close without adhesives or staples. The bags are then wrapped in layered foil and heat-sealed to preserve the taste and freshness. The company name means “teapot” in German; Teekanne remains a top manufacturer of tea worldwide.
