THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE A CUP OF TEA

All tea is not created equal. The way premium loose leaf tea, also known as specialty tea, is created has a profound effect on how a tea tastes, smells and makes you feel. From the terrain the tea is grown in to the way it is crafted through plucking, withering, oxidising, rolling, drying and finally, sorting; each step has an important role to play in creating the experience that you will have when you brew and sip your cup of tea. Within the categories of white, green, yellow, oolong, black and dark, there are thousands of single origin teas, with each offering a different flavour, aroma and sensory experience.What’s more, loose leaf tea supports your health and well-being. From helping to boost your immune system and reduce free-radicals to bringing you focus and calm, premium loose leaf tea nourishes your body and mind.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

"My Tea Curator subscription is the most nurturing gift I have ever been given. It is so much fun opening my box each month and the quality and presentation of the tea is exceptional."

"I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the teas I ordered from you. Thanks for elevating my appreciation of tea to a new level. I especially like the tasting notes that come with each of the teas you sell, as well as the information about their provenance."

"I loved my first delivery from The Tea Curator! From the beautiful packaging to carefully selected black and green tea - superb! I love stories and each pack includes a little story about the tea: its origin and flavour. I look forward to my journey of learning lots of new tea varieties!"

"Spent a very enjoyable two hours this morning with Anna for her Tea Masterclass. Was very informative and loved the beautiful gift pack we each got to take home. Would highly recommend it."

"What a gorgeous way to start a morning. I met the amazing Anna last year, as she was setting up this fantastic business, and it was a honour to be at her first Masterclass today. I love her brand, her passion, and her wonderful ability to explain the many many intricacies of tea. Not to mention, who doesn’t need a reminder of the importance of a beautiful ritual."

Receiving the Tea box every month is a gift to myself. When I decided to eat healthier having a cup of tea became the treat. I have thoroughly enjoyed the different flavours and broadening of my knowledge.  Anna provides a thoughtful and personal service and would highly recommend ordering her tea.
