Welcome to T London, a new collection inspired by tea, blended to enhance your mood.
Captured in candles, reed diffusers and bath & body, all designed, made and formulated in England. Master perfumers and natural chemists select fragrant spices and aromatic plant and flower oils for their effects on the mind and body, and blend them with active natural botanicals to benefit the skin and hair. Our skin-friendly formulas are up to 99% natural content, with no parabens, no SLS/SLES, or artificial colours. Our candles use lead-free cotton wicks, and 100% natural vegan wax and our diffusers use an oil-free glycerin carrier. Safe and reassuringly natural. We don’t test on animals.
Founder Jayne Kethro lives to travel, constantly searching out new experiences. She tells us “Aromas trigger deep emotions, moods and memories, and this is what I set out to recreate with T London. Each of the fragrances is personal to me and is blended to capture a specific mood or moment from my travels – which often seemed to happen when I had a cup of tea in hand. Tea is at the heart of my experiences and is central to my T London creations.”
DARJEELING…..Blended for positivity.
Zesty lemongrass. A sun-drenched twist of citrus. A shot of spicy nutmeg. A rich black tea base.
Grown in the tea gardens and hill stations of East India, Darjeeling is often called the champagne of teas. Our blend is crisp and optimistic, helping to revitalise and reawaken the body and mind, no matter how hard the day or how long the journey.
Inspiration behind the blend
“I was visiting a vast tea garden in the Darjeeling mountains. It was so wonderful to be cooler after the heat below, and we stopped for a picnic lunch in a grove of orange trees. Around us rolling plantations, so intensely green and immaculately clipped, stretched far into the distance. Everything was still and quiet as I sipped a cup of first flush darjeeling tea. Just a light breeze carrying the aroma of orange blossom. I felt overwhelmingly happy and positive in that moment – I knew I had to capture it.”
Yerba Maté…… Blended for focus and clarity
A hit of petitgrain citrus. A crush of green maté leaves. The exotic depths of guaiac wood. An earthy vetiver base. Yerba Maté is a fresh, stimulating aroma inspired by maté, the steeped leaf infusion of Argentina and South America. The blend sharpens the senses and energises mind and body, helping you to think freely and clearly, wherever you are.
Inspiration behind the blend
“On a trip through Argentina I spent a few nights on an estancia in the pampas grasslands. I’d always wanted to ride with gauchos. Galloping across the vast empty plains, the wind on my face, it was an adrenaline ride. Late afternoon, we stopped and shared a flask of maté, the caffeine-rich local brew; the sun was just starting to set on the horizon, all we could hear was wind and rustling grasses. I felt so free and alive. I could do anything and think clearly – no distractions, no clutter, just pure thought. I had to catch that feeling.”
Freshly crushed cardamom. A spicy hit of black peppercorn. Black tea and coriander seed over a warm, reassuring cedarwood base. Dimbula is a distinctive, freshly spiced fragrance inspired by the high altitude teas grown in the Dimbula mountain plantations of Sri Lanka. The blend harmonises the mind and body, creating a feeling of calm balance.
Inspiration behind the blend
“I’d travelled into the mountains to spend the night on a tea estate. It was mid-afternoon, and I had my feet up on a rickety wooden veranda sipping a cup of golden dimbula, reflecting on the day’s highlights. I’d already spent time at the beach in the shimmering heat and explored the cool and hilly lowlands where spice crops and tea meet. On the way up we passed a spice factory on the road where green spices were being pounded: the scent mixing with the sea breeze. As I closed my eyes on the veranda I felt a sense of inner balance. I wanted time to stop. It was this moment I wanted to capture… that feeling of equilibrium”
