STORY

Created by husband and wife team, Charlie and Natalie Winkworth-Smith, Saicho was born out of a personal desire to create a non-alcoholic drink that could pair well with food. Hailing originally from Hong Kong, Natalie can't drink alcohol, and turns as red as a tomato with even the smallest sip, so she always missed being able to fully enjoy the experience of food and wine pairing. As a solution, Charlie and Natalie turned to tea with its rich history and wide variety of flavours, from floral to fruity, nutty to smoky, influenced by its terroir and processing methods. After two years of testing hundreds of different teas from around the globe, they chose their first three teas; carefully selected to pair well with food.
