Although we believe all our teas are of a high quality we do have certain teas which we consider to be more of a premium selection. Often premium teas only use the budding leaf and/or the first one or two leaves, which generally means they're not producing as much of this tea and hence making them more exclusive. Some premium teas are only picked at a certain time of year, and sometimes only have a harvesting period of a few days. If weather conditions aren't right then teas may not be picked at all, meaning none of that premium tea is produced that year. Some premium teas are only grown and harvested from one particular garden and yet others are hand woven or hand rolled, producing something special but quite labour intensive. So various things can come into play to categorize a tea as a premium tea - making them a little more special than some of their counterparts. All in all our premium selection has an array of beautiful teas which we're sure won't disappoint!
