Our Special Reserve Tea Collection celebrates the art of tea craftsmanship, supports biodiversity, the environment and small scale tea farmers. Requiring great skill to produce, many of the teas in this collection can take a Tea Maker over 10 years to learn and by purchasing these teas you’re helping keep these traditions and unique tea varietals alive and thriving.
Exposure to light, heat and air causes flavour loss as well as the nutrient value of tea to decline, so be sure to store this tea in the package it came in. Always reseal tightly after opening.
To maximize the taste & aroma experience of this exquisite tea:
