As tea specialists our aim is to be the gateway to the world of tea, creating memorable blends for everyone to enjoy and explore. Even though our passionate artisanal team scours the world to bring you the best tea, we have a small-picture approach when it comes to sourcing. All of our leaves are hand picked, ethically sourced and treated with care, and every batch is tasted and approved by our master blender who brings decades of family traditions and knowledge.

Director of Tea
Ashok Dias founded Tea Drop after spending years working for a specialty coffee roaster. Being so immersed in the world of coffee, he noted a lack of quality tea. Ashok found a mentor in the head roaster, who encouraged him to follow his heritage and instincts and pursue the world of tea. He spent a year learning about the sourcing and serving of specialty tea in Australia before launching Tea Drop.
Ashok’s genuine love of tea is at the heart of everything Tea Drop does. He works closely with plantations from tea growing regions to develop the blends and infusions. He is also intimately connected with local communities to ensure the environment is treated respectfully.
“Drinking tea is a timeless ritual in many cultures,” “Growing up in Sri Lanka, my parents and relatives enjoyed the ceremony and pastime of tea-making every day. I want to bring that pleasure in a cup to my customers, to enjoy the health benefits of a brew and to spend time with friends and savour the wonderful aromas and fragrances in every sip”.
