Tips for the Best Tea
Here is a guide to buying, brewing and enjoying tea
Every leaf that goes into our green & black tea comes from the same camellia Sinensis bush, plucked when green for maximum freshness. The difference in taste comes from how the leaves are processed: whether they are wither, sun dried, pan-fired or steamed. That’s what gives our range of teas their impressive variety of flavours and rich taste.
The taste flavour and character of tea is determined by;
The Species of the Tea Bush
In our green & black teas we use leaves from the tea plant, the Camellia Sinensis bush, which is native to East, South and South East Asia.
The Country of Origin
We mainly use tea grown in China, although it is also cultivated in India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia & Africa.
The Type of Harvest
We pluck only the buds and first leaves for the tastiest blends.
Brewing your Speciality Tea
Each of our Speciality Teas should be brewed for a specific length of time. This is to ensure that you are extracting the maximum flavour from every tea pillow. The brew time varies from 2 – 6 minutes depending on the variant and allows you to also yield the maximum number of infusions per pillow.
