What can we do for you?



D&B Brand World

We feature several brands of our own: Cha Cult, Café Cult, Tea since 1836, Tea on the Beach, and Hall of Tea. Visit our brand sites and discover innovative and exclusive products.


Shop Outfit / Private Label

D&B brands your tin, bag, and many more products. You want to stand out from the competition and would like your own personal packaging and/or labels? We will glady implement your ideas!



Our accessories are mainly presented in speciality stores. This by itself already obliges us to offer special qualities. Therefore, we seek to create products for the speciality store customer.



Freshness and quality are at the very heart of the product selection for our assortment. We distance ourselves from industrially produced items, which are in competition with classical supermarket qualities.



Our roast master transforms exceptional green coffee beans into superior quality coffees in our very own roaster. We like to take particular care in the choice of our coffees, in the roasting process and, finally, their storage.



There are very few foods that are as multifaceted as tea. Being one of the most important among both the basic and the luxury foods, it artfully combines tradition with modernity.

Our Assortment

Detlefen & Balk is one of the oldest trading companies for specialty shops and is characterised by tradition, experience and innovation. With our collection of teas, coffees, sweets and accessories you will be able to add that certain something to your store.
