Founded by tea sommelier Sarah de Witt in 2014 in Brunswick, Victoria. The original Impala & Peacock was a brick and mortar tea house - a quiet sanctuary on the hustle and bustle of Sydney Road. Impala & Peacock is now run by Sarah, husband Ruan de Witt, and their Melbourne team.

The tea house was a favourite tea drinking destination winning the Australasian Tea House of the Year in 2015.

In 2017, the tea house closed its doors to focus on growing its wholesale partnerships and online retail presence.

Impala & Peacock shares its tea with high end restaurants, day spas, and cafes Australia wide.

Sarah continues to create, source and develop unique tea blends. Ruan, a mechanical engineer by trade, geeks out on the technical side of tea. That is; the production, manufacturing, and systems that ensure quality and consistency in the tea.

Ruan has represented Australia on the world stage of tea (held in China) in Blind Tea Tasting and Tea Brewing Competition categories after winning the Australian championships.

Sarah and Ruan source teas from origin and combine natural botanicals to create unique blends enjoyed by thousands of Australians every year.
