There is, of course, no better way start the day than with tea.  Preferably a cup of tea brought to your bedside by a loving other.

New Tea and New Adventures

July 17, 2014 | 1 comment

I'm about to leave for Nepal and India to search for some new tea gardens and visit old friends.  It's monsoon season with plenty of thunderstorms so it should be a particulary exciting Himalayan trip. I was stuck by lightening in the Andes and lived - so fingers crossed my luck hold's out.


Before I go I wanted to let you know about two new black teas. We need to make room at HQ for the new discoveries I'll be bringing back from this trip - so please do your bit, try these two and free up some room.  Please Drink your tea Responsibly. 

Rare Tea is 10 years old....

I know it's hard to fathom but Rare Tea Company is almost ten years old.


Henrietta has been the tea-lady for a decade.  We thought that might be cause for a celebration and possibly a stiff drink.


So we are hosting our first ever cocktail competition - and we'd be honoured if you might submit a recipe.

Whist I was in Mexico hunting for rare herbs last month I had the huge honour to spend time with the legendary Diana Kennedy at her house in Michoacán.

An update from Mexico.
