Tea & Infusions. This is what we do

We are the first and oldest Tea Association in Italy, and today the only national Tea Trade and Tea Professional Organization


Tea is derived solely and exclusively from the tender shoots of varieties of the species Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze and produced by acceptable processes for making a tea infusion suitable for consumption as a beverage.

Herbal and Fruit Infusions

HFI materials are plants or parts of plants that do not originate from the tea plant and are intended for food use by brewing with freshly boiling water. They also include blends of HFI with tea as a minor component.
