Classic Selection

Earl Grey – Earl Grey is a type of Flavoured Tea that needs no introduction. It usually consists of the finest quality China Black Tea with delicious, citrusy bergamot oil.


Darjeeling First Flush – Darjeeling First Flush Tea is so special, so extraordinarily unique, that it deserves a section of its own. This is a type of Indian Black Tea considered the crème de la crème among connoisseurs. Such is its popularity, indeed its allure, that people the world over flock to buy First Flush Darjeeling Tea as soon as it becomes available, year after year.


Assam Leaf Tea Flowery Orange Pekoe – Assam Tea originates from the vibrant and fertile valleys of Assam in northeast India. It stands out as a distinguished form of black tea. This tea is esteemed for its robust, full-bodied flavor. It has a distinctive malty essence and a rich amber hue. It truly tantalises the senses.


Lapsang Souchong – This is a Smoked Black Tea from China. Its unique characteristics are the product of workers drying the leaves over pinewood fires. The practise dates back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912), a time of great upheaval in the country when bandits roamed freely.

According to legend, a group of farmers, harassed by marauders, decided to hastily ready their Tea crop by smoking it before heading off to market.

They expected little from their endeavours, believing that they had ruined their produce. What they had done, in fact, was to create the first type of Black Tea by pure accident. Its popularity spread soon after – or so the tale goes.


English Breakfast – Traditionalists insist on English Breakfast should be a split between Ceylon Tea and Assam Tea. We offer a Flowery Orange Pekoe and Ceylon mix version of English Breakfast Tea


 Scented Tea Selection

Lavender tea

Rooibos – Rooibos Tea (also known as Redbush) is a South African Herbal Tea. It grows exclusively in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape Province.

Peppermint green tea

Chamomile flowers tea


Flowering teas – 1 flower per person

Flowering Tea (also known as Flower Tea, Treasure Tea and Blooming Flower Tea) is a carefully handmade creation. It is the product of dried flowers placed within a delicate layer of sewn Green or White Tea.  Workers typically roll them into ball-shapes, which, when placed in hot water, unfold while showing the striking flower within. The sight alone is enough to marvel at- and then there’s the great taste.

Ayurveda teas

An estimated 80% of rural communities in India practice Ayurveda and, as a result, brew Ayurvedic Tea. The idea is to balance the three “doshas,” which are energies in the body that make up every individual. There are three such doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each one, according to Ayurveda, has a different function in the body, providing spiritual harmony when balanced.

Ayurvada balance tea PITTA

Ayurvada stimulating tea KAPHA

Ayurvada anti-strain tea VATA
