teapigs was set up in 2006 by Nick and Louise, self-professed tea nuts on a mission to get the nation drinking real tea. Louise has been a professional tea taster for over 10 years, and has travelled the world sourcing all sorts of teas. The result is a range of the very best quality teas you’ll find. teapigs only use whole leaf teas; whole berries; and whole herbs and flowers – not the dusty stuff you’ll find in regular tea bags! Our teas come in biodegradable tea “temples” – roomy mesh bags that gives the leaves lots of room to infuse.

From Leblon to Copacabana beaches, Rio is a place where the music of the streets moves to the rhythm of the waves. Where the flavours of hillside Favelas mingle with the tropical heat of its white sands, and where the pulse of the city is reflected in the beauty of its people.
This is the place where Favela Cerveja was born. Inspired by the sights, sounds and flavours of Rio's Favelas, we created a lifestyle beer brand that adopted the independent spirit of its people – a brand defined by freedom, passion, colour and confidence, and above all, an instinct to live outside the rules.
