Lalani & Co., Teas of excellence
My wife is something of an aficionado of high quality teas, but even she has had to admit that the quality of the teas that are purveyed by Lalani & Co are the best teas that she has ever drunk.
"It's clear that they love teas, themselves," she pointed out. "They have got everything exactly correct. These teas would be viewed as perfectly acceptable for the tea drinkers of the country of origin, which isn't always the case."
She has raved for days about their Okumidori Sencha Green Tea. "It's one of the best green teas I have ever tasted. It's perfection in a cup!"
She was particularly pleased that the tea is accompanied by such important details as to the region of Japan where it was sourced, which season and also the exact tea garden where it was grown, and if it is organic or not. In this case the tea in question was organic and the garden was the Wazuka Garden.
However, she reserves her special praise for their Matcha Gold tea, which is finely milled as only a proper Matcha tea should be.
She said: "Matcha Gold. I have had Matcha tes in the past and, to be fair, thoroughly enjoyed them.
But that was before I tried Lalani & Co. Matcha Gold. This is truly the Matcha experience to beat all Matcha experiences
"Apparently they pick it in Kyoto from only real, family owned farms, it's shaded from the sun for 21 days, then they mill it using the ancient method involving granite stones.
"It takes time to prepare it properly, which is the only way, as this tea deserves to be prepared and drunk with real respect."
It is sold in 30 gramme jars at a cost of £29.00.
