Ronnefeldt is the top premium brand tea for first class hotels and gourmet restaurants throughout the world. The company was founded in Frankfurt by Johann Tobias Ronnefeldt in 1823. The tea experts specialise in importing and blending high-grade leaf teas from the world’s most important tea growing regions. Ronnefeldt serves the top hospitality companies with tailor-made tea concepts and innovative service ideas. The company has been committed to the same philosophy since its beginnings: Offering unique quality to customers in the world markets from its central European location. Ronnefeldt teas are produced using exclusively traditional methods, which means that each step in the tea’s production is carried out mostly by hand. Ronnefeldt has set industry benchmarks with the development of its famous Ronnefeldt TeaCaddy® – loose tea in its own large net – and with the Ronnefeldt Teavelope® where each teabag contains solely fannings and is individually protected by a special propylene foil.


Ronnefeldt’s newest invention will again set benchmarks in tea service for the HoReCa market: LeafCup® is the first ready-portioned leaf tea for making delicious tea simply and conveniently in a cup or mug. Long experience has inspired the company to create a cup solution, which is the perfect answer for restaurants, cafés, bars, catering and fast service areas in hotels, such as conference rooms, spa/wellness areas, room service and lounges. Its day-to-day use is simple and straightforward for service staff and guests – and it is available in thirteen delicious varieties.


Ronnefeldt created the worldwide unique TeaMaster® program for hotel service management. Today, there are around 220 Ronnefeldt TeaMasters® working in the most prestigious hotels throughout the world. They ensure that day-to-day tea service fulfils the discerning guest’s expectations of a first class hotel.
