This is the spirit of T-Life
Tea is an ancient beverage with a rich history, having been enjoyed for over 2,000 years. In the modern day, it remains one of the most enjoyed beverages across the world. Across the millennia, tea has experienced countless changes in how it is enjoyed. As an Australian local business, T Life is dedicated to providing everyone with an insight into this ancient beverage, and more importantly, to present the authentic flavour it is supposed to have.
The professional tea masters and their ways of brewing and appreciating tea are true artists, and we at T-Life are dedicated to acknowledging and uplifting their craft. To be a Tea Master is to have complete knowledge of tea making, brewing, and serving, as well as a profound appreciation of the historical and cultural context and significance of tea. It is a true blend of rational, practical knowledge with perceptual artistry that elevates the drinking experience.
We keep exploring, by inheriting the traditions passed on since ancient times, accumulating experience and mastering the professional knowledge system and the unremitting pursuit of flavour expressiveness. T-Life is all about blending the careful and scientific management of the teas - the observation of hydrological terroir, growth climate and seasonal changes - along with the sophisticated and delicate tea brewing techniques and appreciation for the mastery that comes with thousands of years of tradition.
This is the spirit that T-Life is steeped in, and the passion that the whole team carries with us. We hope to inject this world with a unique and charming flavour. The taste of life – T Life.
