modern infusions. ancient elements

zig zag are a modern independent tea company based in East London. We harness tea’s ancient culture while at the same time bringing it into the modern era. zig zag tea was founded by Lucy Dolan who was inspired by the ancient Chinese tea ceremony, “Cha Dao,” which she experienced first-hand in China. Adopting its focus on connection, ritual and appreciation, Lucy has created a modern tea company that seeks to align the past with the present. Her carefully curated tea collections; Pure, Plant and Fusion, allow you to explore a whole new world of tea…
