A world away from traditional tea bags. These teas should be brewed 'Gong Fu Style'.

Attractions of the loose tea that we offer
An affordable luxury – that really is what loose tea is. It is a world away from traditional tea bags and you can get especially good flavours through use of tea ware that we at The Tea Guru offer a great variety of. You can also greatly benefit from brewing loose tea through use of the Chinese method of Gong fu. A Gaiwan is a Chinese lidded bowl used for infusing and tea consumption. The Gaiwan has been used for centuries and is often considered the most effective way of tea brewing to extract delicate flavours and aromas.
There are also said to be many health benefits of drinking tea. These benefits, recent studies suggest, could include lowering blood pressure and helping to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer.
We particularly endeavor to ensure that we offer a choice of many different flavours of loose tea. We have had lots of fun and excitement trying many different flavours of loose tea and we want you to have the opportunity to experience this fun and excitement as well.
Many flavours of loose tea are available from our Guildford base
Our base is located in the town of Guildford in Surrey. This town is a mere 27 miles southwest of central London and easy to reach from both the capital and Portsmouth; however, there is no need for you to visit this base if you would like to buy some great quality and great value loose tea from The Tea Guru. We are capable of delivering loose tea and great all-round service to many addresses in the UK. We’d drink to that!
