How to get started with loose leaf tea

We want to help you learn to love loose tea as much as we do (which is really quite a lot!), so here are our helpful hints on getting started…

Whole leaves contain more essential oils, giving your tea leaves extra space and unlocking fuller and more luxurious flavours!

Helpful hints

  • LOOK at the beautiful unbroken leaves
  • SMELL the essential oils and fuller flavours
  • MEASURE one TSP for a mug and half a TSP for a china cup
  • BREW green teas for 2 minutes, black teas for 2-3 minutes and all others for 5 minutes
  • ENJOY a handcrafted, very special and delicious cup
