Dethlefsen & Balk GmbH was founded in Hamburg, Germany, in 1836. Then, its main business was the import and wholesale of premium teas, soon specialising in blending teas, adding flavours and composing delicate fruit tea blends. As the company developed and grew over the years, tea accessories were added as a product category, soon becoming a huge success with tea speciality shops. Approximately ten years ago, a premium coffee selection was launched, giving a new boost to the company‘s growth, followed by the introduction of an exclusive confiserie range.
In brief terms: we are a wholesaler offering tea, coffee, confiserie and accessories to resellers like tea specialty shops, tearooms, coffee chains, restaurants, fine food retailers or gift service companies.
Backed with 175 years of experience we offer you what you won’t find anywhere else - truly fresh teas and exceptional coffees, unique flavours and designs.

With our passion for innovative products and following strict German and European quality guide lines, Dethlefsen & Balk promises their customers an exclusive selection of seasonal product highlights which are trendsetters in the industry and promising bestsellers.
