How Love Leaf Tea discovered tea
Once upon a time, when I’d wake up in the morning my first thought would be ‘I must have a cup of coffee” And it had to be delivered quickly preferably within the first 20 minutes of wakening. But this was part of my life for too long. I still love coffee, don’t get me wrong , but then I discovered tea and numerous wonderful infusions that not only tasted fantastic but also made you feel great too.
My mother and step father lived and worked in Hong Kong and as teenagers we regularly visited and spent long periods of time out there, where we soaked in the energy from a place that made you feel alive with its bustling busy streets. This is where we first discovered what I would call real tea. Not strong dark, steeped bags (which I’m sure have a place)but mild flavoured wonderful green and white teas which made you feel fresh, cleansed and invigorated. We drank it out of delightful little cups and glassware and it made us feel relaxed and free. I wept when I left for what I knew would be the last visit for a long time, but my love for the culture, the pure excitement of the place, and of course especially the tea remained. This was how my love for tea began.
How Love Leaf Tea started and what we love about tea
In my early twenties, I opened a quaint little tea shop called “Melanies” in a suburb of Newcastle. It was a wonderfully sociable little place which I sold on the arrival of my first baby.
My love of tea ( I drank raspberry leaf tea throughout both my pregnancies) the oriental culture and all their wonderful teapots and china remained with me and I knew that at some point I wanted to share them with everyone.
Specialized teas started to become more popular in the UK having already established itself in Europe. We felt perhaps it was time to introduce the tea experience, so people could enjoy the specialist teas, fruit and herbal infusions.
In 2006 we opened “Sencha” the first specialist tea shop in Newcastle, against many warnings that Northerners were not ready for such a cosmopolitan venue. We offered 40 different teas ,infusions and eight different flowering teas. People loved it, they loved watching the tea flowers unfold in the glass teapots. The whole experience of drinking loose leaf tea is a relaxing “Me Time “ experience where they could reflect on their lives or maybe just the events of the day.
Unfortunately, due to ill health, I was sadly forced to sell Sencha a year later, although my passion for tea remained.
It was at this time that I actually discovered tea was infact very beneficial to your health and that all those claimed health benefits worked for me. It took about eighteen months to recover in which time I drank a number of different teas which I am convinced helped me.( The website will help you choose the right tea for you or email us for advice)
My passion for tea is now even stronger. It tastes good ,it makes me feel good and now I truly believe it helped me get better. I wasn’t about to give up on it now. So we decided to launch Loveleaftea so you can all enjoy it too.
