It all started in 1922 when Peter Carstensen Senior and his wife Hedvig Carstensen opened a general store in the Danish town Aastrup by Haderslev. Back then, they did not merely sell tea, but also other food items, ironmongery, tools, food for animals and many other things, that the surrounding farms might need. During the Second World War, merchandise was in short supply, but Peter Carstensen successfully distributed the goods, so that every customer received the same amount. It did not matter whether they were owners of a farm or workers on the farm. Everyone was treated in the same way.
When Peter Senior passed away in 1981, Peter junior continued the family business with his wife Lena Carstensen. Both had a desire to focus the business on food items, especially tea. When the chance came to buy a small grocery shop in Aabenraa, they immediately accepted. Here they could concentrate on tea and started mixing the first of their own blends, blends that remain popular today.
With almost a 100 years old history of mixing their own blends of tea, the combination of unique assortments and high standards have made them very popular. not only in Denmark but several places in Europe, for their quality brand.
