At Rare Tea Company our aim is to source the very best black tea in the UK and, indeed, the world.
Since 2004 Henrietta Lovell, our founder and master blender has travelled the globe to find the finest loose leaf black tea that not only taste amazing but is sustainably grown, without pesticides and herbicides. In this way we can ensure it is not only good for the environment but that our black tea is as good for you as green tea. It is made from the same leaves of the Camellia Sinensis bush – just crafted differently. These are not industrial teas churned out by vast machines. These are the best leaves hand-picked and crafted by highly skilled men and women to be sublime. What is called black tea can be as diverse as what is called red wine. We seek out only the best.
