The highest degree of reliability and quality
go together at Ronnefeldt. The greatest
possible emphasis is laid upon these criteria
already in the tea-producing countries.
Only the top tea gardens in the
best locations are on our list. And
quality control begins right there.
Regular and continuous monitoring is
carried out - from the seeds and the
cuttings, right up to the finished tea.
At the best time for harvesting the
leaves are picked by hand, which
is labour intensive and requires
the greatest degree of care.
Jan-Berend Holzapfel, Owner
It takes a lot of time, many years of experience
and a great deal of intuition to produce real tea
which will reach the very top grades.
When the tea samples come to Ronnefeldt, they are
sensorically tested - how carefully the tea is picked
and processed, what grade of leaf has been chosen,
how many tips …
And after the brewing: the aroma, colour,
freshness and fragrance of the tea. Only a few
samples meet the high demands of the Tea-Taster.
The samples then go to an
accredited independent laboratory
in Germany for an analytical study on pesticides.
Green tea imported from Japan
from the coming 2011 harvest will
also be analysed for radioactive
So you can be sure that Ronnefeldt
teas offer you the highest quality and
the greatest degree of reliability …
… and the experience
of refined taste.
