MISS TEA SMITH
Born in Sri Lanka, Miss Tea Smith's founder Uma calls London home. While forging a rewarding career in financial services, the dream of owning and cultivating her own Tea House stayed with her, and grew from a dream to a goal. In 2014, she retrained as a pastry chef at Le Corden Bleu. Using this newfound training, she started baking and selling free-from and vegan cakes and patisserie in east London farmers markets, and soon concocting her own Ceylon blends, using endless spices and flora.
Uma sources teas from all over Sri Lanka – from the cool mountains to the hot and abundant plains. The terroir of these different regions naturally leads itself to blending teas with subtle and fuller flavours.
