What factors are considered when calling a tea “premium”?
A loose leaf can be considered premium if it falls into any of the following categories: sourced from a reputable tea garden (otherwise known as single origin tea), has a high tea grading (leaves or buds plucked from the tip of the camellia sinensis plant), is plucked using unique methods (orthodox teas are plucked by hand) or is a bonafide rare tea (only harvestable during certain times or difficult to source to Australia).
All of the above is reflected in the price points of our premium teas listed above. Some of these teas are difficult to source and supply to Australians, but The Tea Centre does the hard work because our tea lovers deserve the best! Our premium tea is sourced from across the globe from small batch productions. If one of our premium teas is out of stock, this may be due to seasonal availability.
Consider pouring a cup of our finest tea the next time you want to unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Making a cup of premium tea is also a great gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home.
