Tips on buying wholesale tea - Tea Blossoms

7 helpful tips for buying wholesale tea

Are you passionate about offering your own customers unforgettable tea experiences? 

Whether you're a tea shop owner, a hospitality professional, or simply an avid tea enthusiast, purchasing tea in bulk can offer numerous benefits.

To help you make the best choices and ensure a delightful tea-drinking experience, we’re sharing a list of 7 helpful tips for buying wholesale tea in Australia. Let's delve into the details and unlock the secrets to finding the perfect tea for your needs.

1. Explore a range of tea varieties

Australia boasts a rich tea culture, offering a wide range of tea varieties to choose from. 

Black tea is by far the most widely consumed variety in the world - types such as English Breakfast and Earl Grey tend to be the biggest crowd pleasers. If you want to appeal to the masses then black tea should be on your shopping list.

Additionally, expand your knowledge of other varieties like green, fruit, oolong, and herbal teas. Further, you can explore unique blends and specialty teas to add diversity to your product offerings.

2. Consider how teas are served: loose leaf or bagged?

When purchasing wholesale tea, you will need to think carefully about how you want your tea to be packaged.

Tea bags are often considered more convenient, but loose leaf tea perhaps gives a more high-class impression. Think about your customers as well as the image you want your business to portray to help you make this decision.

Of course in many cases, we have wholesale customers who choose both options, offering greater convenience to their own customers. 

3. Evaluate tea quality

Before finalising a purchase, evaluate the quality of the tea through visual inspection, aroma, and taste.

Look for well-rolled, intact leaves with vibrant colours. Aromatic teas with fresh, pleasant scents and flavours are indicative of superior quality.

We welcome you to request samples from our tea wholesalers to experience the quality, taste, and aroma of our beautiful tea offerings.

4. Consider how and where your teas will be safely stored

Once you have decided on the tea varieties to add to your offerings, your thoughts should then turn to where you are planning to store it.

Tea should always be stored in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight and extreme heat. Failing to store tea in the right conditions can impact its taste as well as its shelf life.

5. Ensure you source from reputable suppliers

Finding trustworthy wholesale tea suppliers is crucial for obtaining high-quality products. 

Research reputable tea wholesalers in Australia who prioritise quality, sustainability, and ethical sourcing practices. Check for certifications and testimonials to ensure reliability and authenticity.

6. Monitor popular varieties to assist when reordering

Keeping a close eye on how well your chosen teas resonate with customers is a valuable way to assist with future orders. 

If certain varieties are not proving as popular as you had hoped, why not change your order and explore alternative options?

At Tea Blossoms, we understand that no two businesses (and their customers) are alike. We’re here to help you find the perfect teas that will captivate your audience. Embrace the opportunity to tweak your selection and discover new flavours that will resonate with your customers.
