In 1925, two brothers and great tea lovers, Robert and Pierre Dammann, created the commercial enterprise known as Dammann Freres. The name Dammann actually goes back as far as 1692 when the family were involved with the supply of tea, coffee and chocolate. Their know how and the quality of their teas made of them the official supplier of the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique - the celebrated and prestigious French Line.
After World War II, the history of Dammann Freres took a different turn with Jean Jumeau-Lafond at the helm. This great tea lover was responsible for some exceptional creations such as the famous Russian blend “Goût Russe Douchka”, the Christmas Tea as well as the Apple tea, which received a triumphal acceptance in Japan. The quality of their teas and their know how has made them one of the finest tea companies in the world.
