The Devotea’s Global Specialty Teas is a collection of exclusive tea blends that tell a story or evoke an era.
Created and marketed by husband and wife team Anne Drury-Godden and Robert Godden, the brand is available in Australia and the US.
The blends are created by hand in small batches to an exacting recipe.
After selling a tea shop, Anne dubbed Robert “The Devotea” as a pen name for his activities as a tea-mad video blogger, writer and reviewer. (You can read The Robert’s ramblings on Tea Trade, on “Lord Devotea’s Tea Spouts”). Before long, the pair were approached to create a range of teas and coffees for an on-line store. Unhappy with the way that range was being marketed, Anne & Robert decided to assume control over the range, ditching the coffee in favor of an expanded range of unique blends offering them for sale to Australia through their first online store.
In May 2012 “The Devotea” range of teas went international, with a licensed blender making some of the range available in the United States of America. Nicole Schwartz is in charge of the USA operations which includes offering tea education classes in Blacksburg Virginia.
Anne (who often goes by the name “Lady Devotea“) and Robert are continuing to bring their teas to a wider audience by selecting tea shops, high tea venues and unique cafés to stock and serve their teas.
They also run popular educational and enjoyable tea events.
