Leaf Teas of Distinction

Discover our luxury collection of carefully-selected, finest reserve leaf teas.

The epitome of tea craftsmanship, taste and elegance, our Leaf Teas of Distinction come in beautiful Dragonfly tins and are foil-wrapped for freshness.

Every tin makes around 20-25 teapots, and because the leaves are of such a high quality, you can brew our green and white teas twice - in fact, it is often said that the second infusion reveals the most refined aromas and flavours. Just be sure to follow the brewing instructions, as teas as delicate as these should not be infused too long or at too high a temperature.
