Teekanne, then known under the name “R.Seelig & Hille”, was found on 16 July 1882 Dresden. In 1888 the company was renamed “Theekanne”, old German spelling for "Teekanne" (meaning: teapot), and registered as a trademark. The registration number 6541 makes it one of Germany´s oldest trademarks still existing. The two employees Eugen Nissle and Rudolf Anders bought the company in 1892; the first to sell blended, packaged tea. The company has remained family-owned ever since.
