Tea Trading, classic tea
Vertrauen in Genuss

From the Tea Estate Direct to You

A separate section on tea trading? Why is that important? Because tea trading involves and requires more than just buying and selling tea.

Nowadays, requirements and standards concerning quality, value for the money, product safety, environmental issues and sustainability give rise to a complexity that demands the highest expertise, skills and know-how. Wollenhaupt Tea Trading customers benefit from much, much more than just the large assortment of teas we offer from a wide range of qualities and origins.

Our tea trading team is comprised of knowledgeable, experienced and well-travelled experts who are in touch with customers, suppliers, teas, logistics and market requirements. In particular, the team’’s excellent know-how and cooperation with their network of well-established tea producers and exporters in more than 20 tea-producing countries make them exactly the right contact partners.

What does that mean for you?

Individuality:  No matter how diverse the requirements of your markets, your customers and your own processes are: Let us know what you want and need, and profit from our experience.
Right from the harvest at the place of origin direct to your door? Upon request, we’’ll be glad to arrange “just-in-time” deliveries directly to you.
Flexibility:No matter how diverse your requirements and standards about the quality and characteristics of bulk tea lots may be: Benefit from the global network of contacts we have established and expanded over the past 130 years. Our extensive stock of teas in all qualities and from all provenances means we can also fill short-term demand gaps at very short notice.
Stability:In our Tea Trading team, you have a contact partner that provides comprehensive advice and is there to optimally assist you with your strategic purchase and procurement decisions.

Sustainability, a view to the future, and our active commitment to environmental issues and fair labour conditions are the factors that motivated Wollenhaupt Tea Trading to join the Ethical Tea Partnership in 2014. The first tea company to do so. The trading activities increasingly focus on tea qualities that are certified as sustainable.

As a classic tea merchant in modern times, Wollenhaupt is your experienced advisor and innovative trendsetter, your constant ear on the market, your clever agent and your passionate, dedicated partner.

"For our team, tea trading means focusing on one thing above all: What does the customer want and need? What is he looking for? Where can we find the right product for him in the desired quality? What are the strengths of each producer or supplier, and who can also handle special requests? Travel is certainly a key part. Tea trading is only a desk job part of the time, personal contact with people – with customers and with our suppliers in the countries of origin – is also very important. Staying close to the global and local procurement and sales markets is absolutely essential.”
