Our products are sourced from around the world. Literally. Some countries include China, Egypt, Mexico, India, South America, Sri Lanka, and of course, Australia! We do whatever it takes to find the most delicious tea, herbs and spice available word wide.
No. We have a large range of organic products which are showcased in our ORGANIC TEA & ORGANIC HERB collections, but we also carry some products which are not organic. The various certifications include: ACO, USDA, BCS, NOP, IMO
All our products should ideally be stored in a dark place away from light and heat. A solid opaque canister or caddy is preferable to a glass container or jar.
They should also be kept in an airtight container to avoid exposure to air and humidity. This will ensure they maintain optimum freshness for longer.
This depends on the type of tea or herb you've purchased. Below is a basic guide for brewing a cup based on one serve (approx 1 teaspoon or 2-4gms) in 200ml water. This is always something you can adjust according to your personal taste. Using filtered water is preferable if available, however distilled water is not recommended as the low mineral content can make for a rather bland cuppa!

GREEN - Brew 2-3 minutes using water 80°C

WHITE - Brew 2-3 minutes using water 70-80°C
