It's an exciting week here at Debonair Tea Company HQ – our very first directly sourced tea is finally available to buy! 

Darjeeling teas, and particularly the range produced at Glenburn, are absolute favourites of our co-founder and in-house sommelier, Louisa.

Tea - A Tradition Revisited (Article for Hythe Life Winter Edition)

by Louisa Latham December 01, 2016

The British penchant for tea is a national institution, but in a world now dominated by big coffee chains and increasingly complex coffee concoctions our devotion to the humble cuppa is seemingly in decline. 

Or is it? There has been unprecedented growth in ‘speciality’ tea over the last decade, but what does ‘speciality’ actually mean? A hundred years ago there was nothing particularly special about loose, whole leaf tea. In many ways we are in fact going back to basics!
