    I set one work-related goal for myself today (Friday 26th of June) – to have a brainstorm with myself regarding sales-boosting content that could be created for our channels. To get the word about our teas out to the world so people would consider trying them. So, I went to my morning run to have this brainstorm with myself. This method usually works, but...

It is best understood when they come to visit us on the spot – we go to see the plantation, we have a tour in our factory and go through the process of making tea and...

    Whenever you read about tea, most likely the health benefits subject comes up as well. But if you browse those hundreds of articles about the benefits of tea (yeah, I did that), they almost exclusively focus on green tea. So, it is no surprise that many people have got the impression that whereas green tea has numerous health benefits, black tea is caffeine and...

    White tea is most likely not everyone's cup of tea. It is one of the most delicate varieties of teas made from Camellia Sinensis and if you are after strong and bold tastes then most likely you are not going to find that in white tea. How white tea is made can come as a surprise as the making process is rather simple and...

    Read the pre-story here. 1. The first shoots come out... So, we cleaned the first plantation, Renegade Estate, in the winter of 2017-2018.  After finishing the cleaning works, there were 4 long months of waiting until we saw that tea was actually starting to come back on most parts of the plantation. During this time we heard a lot of opinions that we should...

    Throwback to our first season as Renegades

    We have been home (in Estonia) for almost three months now. The end of the season got a bit of an unexpected ending for me and Kendrick.

    Season two at the Renegade Tea Estate has officially concluded as the last batch of our teas from Georgia has finally arrived in Tallinn.
