Boasting over 400 varieties, LUPICIA is clearly a haven for those passionate about tea. Though extensive in selection, shopping online is easy as you can browse a wide range of categories including type of tea, region and flavour. Or you can simply search by keyword. In addition to all the classic teas and blends we are world renowned for, we also offer an eclectic range of unique and rare flavoured teas such as Grapefruit Green, Mango Oolong and Sakura Vert to name just a few.
All our loose-leaf teas are packaged in nitrogen-based vacuum-sealed bags to lock in their freshness and flavour.
Once opened, we recommend you store your tea in an air-tight container, such as one of our unique tea tins, available as an optional extra with all of our loose leaf teas.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the overall superior flavour, quality and freshness that makes our tea so special:
- The country and region the tea plant is grown in
- Species or varietal of the tea plant
- Condition and quality of the soil
- Climate & other environmental factors
- Safety standards
- Production methods
- Harvesting and packaging methods
At LUPICIA, not only do we pay utmost attention to each of these individually, we know that it is the optimum combination of all that enables us to deliver such a wide range of high quality teas, each with their own individual and distinctive flavour profiles.
The premium quality of the teas we select is based on our strict commitment to delivering only the very best. We maintain this commitment by carefully controlling our production process, including using our own highly experienced buyers who check the quality of tea at the source before it is imported to our distribution centre in Japan. This includes carrying out strict safety inspections. Ultimately, tea leaves are only imported provided they meet all of our quality and safety standards.
After we receive the imported teas in Japan, they are processed accordingly and packaged on the same day of arrival.
Our skillful and creative tea blenders work tirelessly and passionately at their craft. They are the reason behind our extensive range of original blend green and original blend black teas as well as our large selection of unique flavoured teas for you to savour and enjoy.
