Our Environmental Stance on Packagaing
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL STANCE ON PACKAGING
We are regularly asked about the way that we pack our tea, and often these questions are focused on an environmental concern surrounding plastics, glues and non-recycled elements. We don’t use any of these elements in our packaging, and this article helps to further explain our stance on environment focused packaging.
Behind the Scenes – Our new warehouse
BEHIND THE SCENES
Holding a few hundred kilograms of raw ingredients takes up quite a bit of room, so in early May we made a big decision and moved into a brand new warehouse so that we could continue packing more of the tea that you love without so many space restrictions.
The benefits of consuming Matcha
THE BENEFITS OF CONSUMING MATCHA
Matcha tea has made a resurgence in popularity in recent times, and while it has done so with good reason, the method of roasting and pulverizing green tea into a powder has been around since the Song Dynasty (10th – 13th Century).

Australian Sencha Tea
Going Caffeine Free
GOING CAFFEINE FREE
Coffee and tea are two of the world’s beverages of choice, and while many people understand that coffee contains caffeine and it is consumed for its stimulatory effects, it’s important to note that tea also contains caffeine.
The caffeine component found in the camellia sinensis plant contains varying degrees of caffeine, depending on how and when the plant is harvested and processed. Dependent on the growing techniques and treatments that the tea leaves undergo, they are then classified as white tea, green tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, black tea or matcha tea, all of which are caffeinated but to varying levels.
Vanilla – a worldwide shortage
VANILLA – A WORLD WIDE SHORTAGE
Not only is it the second most expensive spice in the world, it is one of the most labour intensive foods on earth.
After the flowers are pollinated by hand and the seed pods are harvested, each pod is soaked in hot water, wrapped in a woollen blanket for about 48 hours, placed in a box to sweat and are later laid out to dry in the sun. The whole process takes months to complete.
