SINGLE-ESTATE, LOOSE LEAF TEA

The world of tea is an exciting but complex one, and although we’ve learnt a lot in the last few years, our education is only just beginning. And we hope that you’ll join us on the journey.

We have carefully selected a small number of black, green and oolong teas, with white tea coming soon. The list will keep on growing as and when we discover new ones. The numbers refer to the order in which we discovered them, tasted them and added them to the collection, hence the seeming lack of logic.

All of our teas come in 100g packs, which will make around 30 cups.

  • SPECIAL: APRIL FLUSH 100g

    SPECIAL: APRIL FLUSH 100g

    9.50 GBP

    While visiting Darjeeling in April, something magical happened. The first flush harvest had come & gone & the second flush was still a while off. Yet in a single field new buds began to appear. With a mixture of curiosity & excitement, these unexpected leaves were carefully picked & expertly crafted into what is a beautiful, yet unusual, Darjeeling tea. Only 4kg were produced & we were lucky enough to bring it all home. 

    A fresh, floral, afternoon tea to be enjoyed without milk. 

  • #10 Sencha

    #10 Sencha

    8 GBP

    The most popular of Japanese teas, Sencha is a steamed green tea that makes up 80% of those produced in Japan. This particular example is grown on southeast facing hills in full sunlight. However, 14 days before it is harvested the tea is shaded to bring out more sweetness.  

    These dark, silky leaves produce a vibrant green cup with a fresh, grassiness typical of a Sencha.

  • #11 Hojicha

    #11 Hojicha

    6 GBP

    Unlike other Japanese green teas, this one is roasted after production, making it light and rich all at once. The chestnut-brown liquor has hints of honey and caramel, as well as toasty notes of cedar wood.  The roasting process also removes much of the caffeine making this is a lovely, rounded cup for after dinner.

    As with all of our green teas, the leaves can be re-infused up to 4 times.

    6.50 GBP

    From a country largely reputed for producing the low-grade tea found in bags comes this delicious ‘orthodox’ black. Produced from a co-operative of small-holding farmers, this whole-leaf tea produces a deep red liquor with a rich and expansive flavour. 

    A great alternative to Assam as a strong breakfast tea, with or without milk.

  • #1 GOLDEN TIPS

    #1 GOLDEN TIPS

  • #3 JADE TIPS

    #3 JADE TIPS

    6 GBP

    A lovely example of a Mao Jian – a sweet green tea with a flowery aroma. These wiry leaves produce a bright, pale green-yellow liquor and can be re-infused several times.

    A refreshing, everyday tea which, with a little care in brewing, is ideal for converting those who don’t already love green tea.

  • #5 DARJEELING 2ND FLUSH

    #5 DARJEELING 2ND FLUSH

    8 GBP

    From the region famed for producing the ‘champagne’ of teas, this particular 2nd flush, with its silvery tips, produces a deep amber cup with a floral aroma and all the muscatel character one would expect from a Darjeeling.

    Full-bodied and fragrant, this makes for a wonderful afternoon cuppa, best served without milk.

    #6 CEYLON

    Well loved for its breakfast teas, Sri Lanka has been filling British mugs for well over a century. This particular whole-leaf tea produces a bright, coppery liquor and a smooth, fruity cup.

    A favourite among milk-and-sugar takers, but even better taken black.

    #8 KEEMUN

    IN-CUP BREWER

    8 GBP

    Ideal for larger leaf teas thanks to the space it allows for them to infuse, this brewer is surely the easiest way to brew loose leaf tea.  Just place it in your favourite mug, spoon the leaves into the basket, pour over water, put the lid on and let it brew! When the tea is done the basket sits neatly into the upturned lid to catch any drips while you enjoy your cuppa.
