York, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 22, 2013 -- LuLin Teas specialises in hand-picked, artisan produced, whole leaf teas sourced directly from single estates. As the name implies, they have a focus on Chinese teas, with LuLin meaning "Green Forest" in Chinese.
"We work closely with the tea farmers and producers, visiting them regularly, sourcing the highest possible quality loose tea, and we look after every leaf from picking to pouring."
The world of Chinese tea is huge so LuLin Teas sources only the best quality for the best price teas they can find. These teas include Green, White, Black, Puerh and Oolong teas. All the tea comes from the same plant the Camellia Sinensis but the difference in the flavour and look of the tea comes from how it is processed. All of this the company has learnt along the way on their tea journey.
The company caused a stir in the tea world in late 2011 with the launch of their innovative tea bag, Tea Cubed. A new concept of teabag, designed specifically for whole leaf tea, and now four flavours of Tea Cubed are among the products exclusively available in Harrods. The Tea Cubed varieties in Harrods are Jasmine Dragon Pearls, Keemun Breakfast, Puerh tea and their 2* Great Taste Award winning Fujian Oolong, together with four loose teas and the Blooming Tea Exploration Box.
Amy Gallagher commented "I am delighted to be working with Harrods, they are the epitome of style, quality and luxury. Having only launched the LuLin brand in September 2011 it is a big step for a young brand to be recognised by such a prestigious institution."
They will be working closely with Harrods, with regular tea tastings days in store, the first being on Friday 14th December, as well as launching the products on the Harrods website next month.
They are also proud to have begun collaborations with The Cedar Court Grand 5* Hotel & Spa in York, and Zest Restaurant in Derby, winners of "Best Restaurant" at the 2012 Derby Food & Drink Awards.
