For over a decade, HOUSE of WARIS has captivated its audience with an escape from the ordinary. Described by the New York Times as a “modern day Marco Polo”, Waris Ahluwalia has travelled far and wide in search of cultural treasures, rare crafts and experiences to share with friends. These adventures, across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, have given him a deeper insight and appreciation for artisanship, meditation and a purposeful approach to living.
Whether on the other side of the world or in his own backyard, Waris comes across people hungering for time, space and meaning in their lives... Waris soon discovered the answer that was in his cupboard. Tea, the most popular beverage in the world, is an age-old remedy for personal and social wellbeing. Through tea, we mark time, create stories, and, most of all, discover connection. For centuries past and those yet to come, tea inspires reverence, artistry and social unity. Today, it is a rare oasis in a world of noise and distraction.
Waris has traveled the world of tea, in search of the best, letting the healing power of plants guide us on this exploration. As with everything we do, we hold fast to the idea of considered consumption and infuse this sense of social resposibility and care into our daily practices. Our teas and herbs, hand picked from exceptional estates, are organic - which means they’re good for you and good for the planet.
HOUSE of WARIS invites you to sit down with a cupful and allow yourself a moment to pause, to breathe, to dream—to discover a more thoughtful way of living.
