The idea for LuLin Teas was born when Alexandra Verhoosel started to bring tea back for her friends from her travels in China.
The teas were so popular amongst her friends that she started to source rare and exotic teas to sell as part of her company “Tea & Things” in Belgium.
At the same time her son, Hans Verhoosel and his partner Amy Gallagher were running a speciality coffee house in York, UK and found it difficult to source sustainable and traceable teas from other UK companies.
So with the help of Alexandra and the knowledge and experience she had gained, Hans and Amy embarked on a trip to China that would change their lives!
They quickly realised that they could find all the tea they needed in China and more – and what was even better was that they could meet the farmers and try the teas with them so they knew exactly where it was grown and even who had picked it! They chose only the best tasting and high quality whole leaf, loose leaf tea to send back
