Amazing food. Bought the husband for the first time to try it and he really enjoyed his food. Portions are big, great value.

WE ARE A VEGAN WORKER COOPERATIVE FROM BIRMINGHAM IN THE UK. WE’VE BEEN VEGAN FOR MANY YEARS, AND WE AIM TO BRING YOU EXCITING AND INNOVATIVE, CRUELTY-FREE FOOD THAT YOU CAN USE YOURSELVES IN YOUR OWN CULINARY ADVENTURES. YOU CAN ALSO TRY OUR FOOD AT MARKETS AND EVENTS. WE SPECIALISE IN MAKING AND IMPROVING THE ESSENTIAL BUILDING BLOCKS FOR PLANT BASED CUISINE. WE ARE INTERESTED IN HOW FERMENTATION ADDS AND CHANGES FLAVOUR TO OUR FOOD AS WELL AS IMPROVING OUR BODIES ABILITY TO ABSORB THESE FOODS. WE LIKE TO CATER WITH OUR PRODUCTS, FUSING THEM WITH STYLES AND FLAVOURS TO EXTEND AND INSPIRE OUR APPRECIATION OF VEGAN FOOD CULTURE.
WE BEGAN AS FERMENTERS, MAKING OUR OWN ORGANIC SOY TEMPEH. WE WERE MOTIVATED BY THE POOR QUALITY OF COMMERCIALLY MADE TEMPEH THAT WAS SHIPPED LARGE DISTANCES AND PASTEURISED. MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCES WITH POOR QUALITY TEMPEH. WE AIM TO CHANGE THIS.
FRESHLY MADE TEMPEH IS INCOMPARABLE TO COMMERCIALLY MADE TEMPEH FERMENTED IN PLASTIC BAGS. WE CAREFULLY FERMENT OUR TEMPEH IN STAINLESS STEEL PANS IN SMALL BATCHES USING INSULATED WATER BATHS TO MAINTAIN PERFECT TEMPERATURES AND CONTROLLED HUMIDITY. THIS MAKES PERFECT TEMPEH.
PASTEURISING TEMPEH REMOVES ITS UNIQUE AROMAS AND COMPROMISES IT’S TEXTURE. THE SUBTLE NUTTY, MUSHROOMY AROMAS IN FRESH TEMPEH ARE INCOMPARABLE TO THE MASS PRODUCED, COMMERCIAL TEMPEH EXPERIENCE.
WE FOCUSSED INITIALLY ON MAKING EXCELLENT TEMPEH, BECAUSE WE WERE IMPRESSED WITH ITS TASTE, TEXTURE AND VERSATILITY IN VEGAN CUISINE. TEMPEH IS AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF PLANT PROTEIN THAT IS VERY EASY TO DIGEST MAKING YOU FEEL COMFORTABLY FULL FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
WE BEGAN MAKING TEMPEH OURSELVES AT HOME ON A VERY SMALL SCALE OVER 10 YEARS AGO. WE GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO ETHICALLY SOURCE THE BEST ORGANIC SOYBEANS FROM REAL FAIR TRADE PARTNERSHIPS AND THE VERY BEST TEMPEH CULTURE.
WE ALSO MAKE NON-SOY TEMPEH WITH ORGANIC SUNFLOWER SEEDS, ORGANIC BLACK BEANS, ORGANIC CHICKPEAS AND BRITISH LEGUMES LIKE RED HARICOT BEANS. THE CULTURING PROCESS CHANGES THE FLAVOUR PROFILE OF THESE LEGUMES AND OPENS UP NEW WAYS TO ENJOY PROTEINS AND PARTNER THEM WITH FRESH VEGETABLES.
PLANT POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Dear dairy: we love ice cream and appreciate your role in enabling this beautiful creation, but the world is changing fast. It’s time to hang up the milking gloves and leave those teats alone!
Our indulgent soft serve ice cream blended from almonds and cashews is naturally thick, rich and outrageously creamy—just like the best ice cream should be.
Hi there, we are Sam and Jason, the creators here at Leaves of the World. We want to share with you the unique story behind the creation of your favourite tea company, and how it all began.
Firstly, we should point out that many of you have come to know us as ‘The TeaNomads’, which we really kind of like, and really makes us feel just as special as our tea. And it’s kind of suitable, really, considering what Leaves of the World is all about.
Leaves of the World was born in January 2017, when we opened our online store to the world, and started sharing our love for tea with everyone.
Before we became the TeaNomads, we had a very different life. Like most people, we were just two regular people who worked in jobs, various jobs, not just in the U.K. but around the world. From teaching English to children across Europe, managing stores in North America, being Santa’s little helpers in Finish Lapland to making cob houses across Eastern and Northern Europe we have done our fair share of ‘unique’ jobs!
Our experiences had led us to taste the many and varied flavours that the world has to offer, but little did we know, just over a year later, this would be the reason behind our creation for our tea company.
If our travels and our experiences had taught us anything, it was that the world and the environment around us that we live in should always be at the forefront and paramount to the creation of any modern day company and what better way to communicate our message than through the 2nd most popular beverage on the planet – TEA!
We didn’t just want to create tea that people could just drink, we wanted to create a new way of looking at tea, of feeling tea, and of experiencing tea. We wanted our teas to feel like a moment of magic, to feel special, to feel guilt free, and more importantly, to actually be guilt free.
Since founding Leaves of the World, it has been one crazy journey from winning a Green Award to getting to work with like-minded charities such as Less Plastic UK who share the same passions as us about changing the world for the better!
It’s a big mission, from a little place, but our story is only just beginning. And we invite you all to be a part of it. Much Love from us, Sam and Jason, The TeaNomads xx
