Tea in all its subtleties

She’s been called a couturier of tea – but she believes that fine tea should not be for the privileged few. Henrietta Lovell’s passion for tea began when she had to travel to China for work. Now a champion of the delights and range of teas from silver tip white tea to rarest oolong, Henrietta has just become Selfridge’s consultant on fine teas; she also runs the Rare Tea Company. She joins Jane to discuss the art of making the perfect cup of tea; what to drink if you  want to keep up your anti-oxidants but keep down your caffeine; and to explore the subtle possibilities that tea can offer.
