Just in time for Christmas, London Tea Club has launched a new online store and range of premium teas, including a rare puerh tea made from tea bushes more than 100 years old.
Tea lovers are invited to explore this new collection of teas carefully handpicked from around the world, from £20 for 100g:-
● Crème Earl Grey
● Vanilla Almond (herbal tea) - we can personally vouch for!
● Iron Goddess of Mercy (oolong tea)
● Silver Needle (white tea)
● Kukicha (green tea)
● Gushu ‘Ancient Tree’ Raw Puerh
London Tea Club has sourced more than 100 teas for the monthly club since it launched its subscription service last year and these teas represent the most popular flavours. The premium collection arrives in good time as non-traditional blends (like Crème Earl Grey), traditional teas (Iron Goddess of Mercy, Silver Needle, Kukicha) and herbal infusions (Vanilla Almond) are all gaining popularity.
The new tea range is complemented by a ‘Tea for One’ bespoke porcelain gaiwan tea set designed in partnership with London Tea Club and handmade by ceramicist Ben Sutton.
Orders placed before 16 November will include a free hand-poured soy candle from Earl of East London.
Please use code PRESS for 15% off online shop orders through 31 December 2015.
About London Tea Club
The fledgling company, created by tea-enthusiast Cecelia Lau who travels the world to find the finest teas is already a hit with a discerning group of loyal tea enthusiasts.
Each month members are introduced to three premium loose-leaf teas tailored to their personalised profile - a perfect treat for beginners and aficionados alike, to enjoy at home, work or on the road.
Membership to the London Tea Club is £10/month for UK members and £12/month for international members with shipping costs included.
Founder Cecelia Lau first discovered tea over a decade ago. She says, “I grew up in a household where there was always a pot of green tea on the kitchen table - it was just a normal part of daily life. Later, friends from Iran and India introduced me to Persian tea and chai. I fell in love with black tea, and spent the next decade becoming increasingly obsessed with all varieties of tea.
“London Tea Club is a project to bring inspiration and wellness to people who love and want to learn more about tea. We love our breakfast tea here in the UK, but there's a whole world of fine traditional teas and modern blends that many people haven't discovered yet! Our goal is to help people discover the world of tea – from the traditional to the modern, the familiar to the undiscovered - and make tea a daily ritual.”
The elegant packaging arrives with three transparent vials containing tea customised to members’ tastes and preferences. Each vial has enough tea to brew 3-4 cups and is accompanied with a description card providing the tea’s origins, tasting notes and brewing instructions on how to enjoy it best. With careful thought to detail, London Tea Club also includes disposable tea sachets which make your daily brew an effortless experience. Quality is paramount to the club, with many teas being sourced direct from farm, vials from Italy, cork stoppers from Portugal and a recycling program for members.
