Rare & Limited Collection

Travelling the globe, we source the most authentic teas from renowned tea gardens in regions such as Darjeeling and Dimbula, Ceylon, – all of which have established their reputations on a global scale. Searching far-flung areas in China, Japan and Taiwan, for the highest quality, unique and rare tea we also work with independent artisan tea farmers who use the traditional methods passed down to them over many generations.

About Our Rare Tea And Limited Release Teas


At The Tea Makers of London, we take pride in offering our customers some of the rarest and most authentic teas from around the world. In order for a tea to make it into our Rare Limited Release range, it has to be single-origin and single harvest (micro-batch) from an independent artisan farmer using traditional methods. And of course, the tea has to be sublime and the best of its kind.

Having tasted hundreds of teas, our tea masters have assembled a selection of outstanding quality. Without the use of equipment used for mass production, the results are simply stunning. The teas we have carefully selected are unique in their own right and exhibit all the art and mastery of tea making at its finest.
