Many, many thanks for that exquisite Lapsang and its charming little pot, I’m delighted to have them. Lapsang for a long time has been the only tea I really like, but the one you gave me is so subtle and refined – really deliciously performed that I doubt I shall ever go back to my habitual old rope.
Tea to Henrietta is like a teddy bear to a child.
The Rare Tea Company exemplifies the very best of quality food and drink in Britain today: the exquisite good taste of one gifted individual, Henrietta Lovell, realised in a collection of superlative products, in this case the very best teas that money can buy.
Henrietta's white silver tip tea is simply exquisite.
This has to be tea at its finest.
The Rare Tea Company creates teas of outstanding quality and aroma. They offer the finest full leaves with intense flavours (Jasmine is our favourite at Tom Aikens) and Henrietta Lovell provides an excellent service.
The tea from the Rare Tea Company is truly unique. Sourced directly from the small mountain tea gardens in China its pure and natural flavours create some fantastic blends. I am proud to offer this tea selection at The Kitchin as it is very much in line with the restaurant's philosophy 'From Nature to Plate’.
