The world of single garden tea is one where tea tastes distinctive, the people making your tea get the highest returns and it’s a world where the environment has a much better chance of thriving.
The best way to experience this world is to make a habit of loose tea. You’ll get everything that’s great about the single garden world, and also:
Find the very best tasting teas – the best quality teas are served loose;
Reduce your unnecessary waste – loose tea has less packaging and processing; and
The best value for money – you’ll be paying for the tea, not the packaging.
