Episode Info:

This week on Tea & Tattle, I’m joined by the founder of the Rare Tea Company, Henrietta Lovell, to discuss Henrietta’s just-published book, Infused: Adventures in Tea, which is a captivating memoir of Henrietta’s love affair with tea and the impact this delicious beverage has had upon her life.

In ‘Infused,’ Henrietta describes the journeys she takes around the globe, sourcing the most delicious teas and working directly with the farmers and artisans that supply her tea. On a mission to convert everyone to the pleasures of excellent quality loose leaf tea, Henrietta is known throughout the food industry as ‘The Tea Lady,’ and her passion and knowledge rings through every page of Infused.

Henrietta’s book opened my eyes, not only to how tea should be prepared to draw out maximum flavour, but also to the importance of knowing exactly where your tea comes from and how it’s produced. As soon as I finished reading Infused, I ordered some of Henrietta’s tea from the Rare Tea Company, and I can truly say that she’s opened a whole new world to me - her teas are the most delicious I’ve ever tasted!

I was so excited to get to chat to Henrietta about her passion for tea, why the art of tea preparation and ritual virtually died out in the UK after the second world war, and how we can all help to bring back the enjoyment of a beautifully brewed pot and promote fairer trade around the world.
