Rose Tea with Petals

If you love a classic black tea but with a little twist of romance, why not try our Rose Tea with Petals?

Described by one of our customers as a "delicately flavoured and scented tea which is perfect from a beautiful china cup", the Chinese black tea contains hints of green tea, rose and jasmine petals.

With subtle aromas of red rose petals, the cup offers a flowery, mild and flavourful tea.



Organic Raspberry & Rosemary Herbal Tea


Our new organic infusion of fruity raspberry and aromatic rosemary will get your taste buds tingling. The naturally caffeine-free herbal fusion is as beautiful to look at in its dry loose-leaf form as it is in the cup. Containing natural ingredients, the expertly blended tea is fused with raspberry and rosemary, fennel, lemon and liquorice — an expertly balanced combination of sweet and savoury flavours.



Paradox Tea Timer – Pink 


Because brewing tea for the optimum time gives you the perfect cup, we always time our brewing. Our Paradox Tea Timers make for the ideal ‘small’ gift for any tea fan whether brewing loose-leaf or bagged tea. These smartly designed tea timers are modern in style and come in a variety of lively colours. 



Wild Fruits Organic Loose-Leaf Tea 


Our organic Wild Fruits loose-leaf tea is summer in a cup. The red berries and fruit infusion tastes and smells simply delicious.

The fruity composition offers a typical tartness thanks to the hibiscus and summery sweetness of the berry notes.

This infusion can be served hot on wintery days or as a refreshing cold beverage on a warmer day evoking thought of long summers! 



Organic Teavelope Rosehip


For a quick and easy hit of delicious rosehip, our organic Teavelope range is perfect for on-the-go indulgence.

A classic fruit infusion, the natural sun-dried rosehip and colourful hibiscus create a refreshing and aromatic tea that is perfectly balanced.

Plus, each Teavelope teabag is individually wrapped in an aroma protection sachet for perfect freshness.
