Rare Tea Company

Sourcing and supplying the world's best tea – direct from farmers and their tea gardens.

Fill your pot with the all-round good teas from the Rare Tea Company, curators of fine tea from across the globe.

There’s a lot that has to happen for Rare Tea Company to class a tea as “good.” Firstly, exceptional taste is a must and they personally search out tea gardens and farmers delivering remarkable flavours.

Next, the tea must be grown using organic, sustainable methods. There are no pesticides or herbicides on any of their supplier farms. Their packaging is just as green too – free from the bleaches, glue and microplastics often used by other brands. 

What’s more, the Rare Tea Company will only work with farms where workers are treated fairly and responsibly. And they also cut out the middleman, working directly with their farmers, which keeps the value of the tea where it belongs – with the people who grow it. 

From a delicate chamomile tea made of whole flowers, to a perfectly balanced Earl Grey, take your tea time up a notch with their range.

Meet The Founder

Henrietta Lovell, also known as the Tea Lady, founded the Rare Tea Company in 2004. 

She wanted to offer an alternative to mass produced teas created as part of an exploitative industry. So she started the Rare Tea Company, introducing some of the world’s best teas to customers all while giving the farmers behind every cup a fair deal. 

What began as a one-woman business with just a handful of devoted customers has now grown to a renowned independent company, much-loved by avid tea drinkers. The company often supplies top chefs, restaurants, bars and hotels, from Noma in Copenhagen to Claridges in London.
