A world of tea for you and me
We are Steven & Angela and set up Cheeky Chai Tea to share our love and passion for Tea, we are also on a mission to pass on our knowledge of how tea can improve your health, wellbeing and Immuni-Tea.
We also love to travel and want to share our Tea Travels with our amazing Communi-Tea! We fell in love with Tea and Chai when visiting the amazing cities of India & Sri Lanka and sat for hours watching the amazing Chai Wallah's in action blending their Tea & Chai recipes.
There are over 20,000 different teas in the world, here are the six main types of Tea, each has its own differing processing and brewing methods. The least processed to most processed Teas, they are White Tea, Yellow Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Black Tea, and Puerh Tea. From Ella, to Galle Kandy and now to Stockport, we wanted to know tea better...
And we want to introduce it to you!

Our favourite memory was picking Tea in Ella! We had arrived, this was the moment we connected with the truly special, camellia sinensis Tea Plant! The gardens were lush, and the ever green Tea Plant made a memorable, everlasting entrance into our lives! We knew we had to share our journey with others!
