Tea Commerce is owned by the team at the Outfield Digital. Outfield Digital is a UK web agency that has worked with Umbraco as our main CMS platform since 2007, and we love it! When we're not developing awesome Umbraco packages, we implement client websites in Umbraco.
Back in December 2018 Outfield Digital took over Tea Commerce with a view to supporting the product going forward and looking to create an Umbraco v8 compatible version. You can read more about it here.
We have been working to create a new Umbraco v8 solution for last 12 months, taking the decision to make a stand alone product, with a fresh new brand, rather than migrating Tea Commerce, due to the big changes v8 brings, as well as to streamline the solution, make improvements and bring it line with the Umbraco UI.
Tea Commerce will still be available to purchase licences for, for some time, as we understand some clients and developers may not be ready to switch to using Umbraco v8 just yet. We will still support and maintain Tea Commerce, inline with Umbraco's schedule for support of v7.
We're very excited about the future of eCommerce in Umbraco and we feel both Tea Commerce and Vendr offers a simple, yet powerful solution for all your eCommerce needs.
