Selection Variations

We’ve selected the most delicious and high quality teas and with 14 to choose from there is something for everyone!

  • Da Hong Pao Organic: A full-bodied robust organic Oolong which has a combination of ripe nutty flavors and elegant Muscatel notes.
  • English Breakfast St. Andrews: This blend has a dark colour when brewed. Of the traditional teas, English Breakfast tea is the most mild in flavour. Its robust, full-flavored taste makes it a favourite breakfast tea.
