Lupicia Fresh Tea has a quiet achieving business since QV's inception. It is on Artemis Lane, and despite the fact that many of the shops around it have changed countless times, it has stood the test of time. The store originally started in Japan and has shops all around the world.
It is a well situated quiet shop where you can buy a good range of fresh teas. The teas include black tea, oolong tea, green tea, herbal tea, as well as some flavoured teas.
They also have a quirky range of 'Australian' tea. The tea comes packaged in lovely round tins that could be used for other things once bought. The staff are informative and friendly.
They stock a good range of teapots, tea caddies, tea drainers and the like. The shop is light and airy. What I love the most about this shop are the sets that you can buy. You can buy pre-packaged selections of three or more varieties of teas. They also have tea sets which include the tea decanter and a selection of teas. It's very well thought out. But I would expect nothing less from a company originating in Japan.
