Harney and Sons has been a supplier of premium teas since 1983. The tea house created by John Harney in the United States has developed by marketing its products in specialized stores and then in renowned establishments. In the 90’s, two of John’s sons joined the company and participated in the development of the company in terms of innovations, research of new flavors and business development.
Today, Harney and Sons remains a family business with the arrival of the third generation. It is still family members who travel the world in search of the best teas, selecting only the exceptional. These years of inter-generational experience are used to enhance tea, whether it is by creating unusual flavored teas or by creating original tea blends, or by constantly innovating, especially in terms of packaging.
In 2006, Harney and Sons teas arrived on the Old Continent. The brand is partly imported by Thedis Europe, based in Luxembourg. The teas are then distributed in the Benelux countries, but also in France, Italy, Portugal and Switzerland, via an own distribution network or national distributors.
