Riku Nordqvist presents his company’s new teas. In honour of the 100th anniversary of Finland, we have developed a signature Finnish tea (available in June), where blueberries are combined with high-quality Assam. The Moomin family is also always expanding with a number of new offerings nearly every year; the latest is the Wintry Moomin Tastes in a gift package. Additionally, a cold-brewed ice tea – The Emperor’s Bride, has just been launched.
Over the millennia, tea has refreshed, calmed, and provided a vast experience of flavours. There has always been a right tea for every occasion, and each flavour can further enhance each palate. The passion of the Finnish tea house, Nordqvist, is to combine the aromas and flavours found in Finnish nature with the sophisticated taste of tea.
Riku Nordqvist, who leads the Nordqvist family business, emphasizes that quality is a matter of honour for them. “We taste every product batch we receive; we continually develop new taste experiences and pack the products beautifully. In addition to Finnish berries and flowers, we also use imported products to flavour different teas.”
Out in the world with the taste of Moomin
Finns have had the opportunity to enjoy Nordqvist teas for nearly 40 years; and in recent years, it has also been available in Scandinavia, Central Europe, and Japan. For instance, Moomin Tea is available in the World of Delights shops in a number of airports, and of course in the Moomin Shop at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport.
“Our aim is to expand and offer high-quality Finnish tea all around the world. Our new factory will be completed in Nurmijärvi in 2018,” says Riku Nordqvist.
