A deliciously cleansing, loose-leaf tea which is among the freshest and sweetest of the green tea family. Each tea leaf is rolled into a tiny ball (these little pellets were mistaken for gunpowder by sixteenth century traders, hence the name). When brewed it has a smoky flavour with hints of aromatic honey.

Chiswick Tea Co is a small London based company that specialises in premium loose-leaf tea from some of the finest plantations around the globe.
The founder Chris has had many years experience of tasting and working with tea. After several trips to China he came to realise that the U.K tea market was lacking in good quality premium teas. From all of this the Chiswick Tea Co was created.
The Chiswick Tea Co not only offers you one of the finest ranges of loose leaf teas in the UK but also information on brewing techniques and other ways to enjoy tea.
