The packaging design by Stephanie Borg™ is also locally inspired as it depicts patterns of traditional Maltese tiles.

The name Chamomile comes from the Greek word meaning ‘ground apple’. Its history dates back at least to ancient Egypt, where Chamomile tea was prescribed as a cold remedy. The Romans enjoyed it as a beverage, as well as an incense. Ironically, the name ‘Roman Chamomile’ by which it is sometimes known, does not stem from this time. It rather comes from an arbitrary naming of the herb in the 19th Century by a botanist who happened to find some growing in the Roman Coliseum.

This golden herb will always be a favourite with its calming effect and sweet floral finish. Serve with honey for extra sweetness.

South African Rooibos requires solid soil preparation, good plant material, rainfall, and ability to make a good quality Rooibos based on harvesting skills and traditions. Rooibos tea is well known for a number of benefits namely to aid nagging headaches, insomnia, asthma, eczema, bone weakness, hypertension, allergies, and premature aging.

The story of vanilla begins with the Totonaco Indians of Mexico, who were the first to unearth its secret. They fell to the Aztecs, who were in turn soon conquered by the Spaniards, under the leadership of Harnando Cortez. Cortez brought his precious plunder, including a few beans of vanilla, back to Spain. Vanilla beans are the fruit of an orchid, which blooms for only one day each year. Because of this, and also because the flowers must be hand-pollinated, vanilla is the second most expensive spice on earth, after saffron.

Taste the orient with this blend of creamy coconut, floral lemongrass and chai spices. Spicy and zesty all in one.

Historically, tea in India was viewed as a herbal medicine, rather than as a beverage for taste. Some chai spice blends still in current use are derived from Ayurvedic medical texts. Popular spices include anise, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, peppercorn and ginger. Traditional preparation actually calls for the spices, milk and leaves to be simmered over sustained heat, rather than steeped in preheated water. In India, chai is served in little clay cups from chai carts. After enjoying your tea, the cups are shattered on the ground and allowed to compost – an earth-friendly alternative to paper or plastic cups.

A mellow and light-bodied oolong tea with floral notes ending with a creamy mouthfeel. Excellent for multiple infusions on a rainy afternoon.

Ali Shan is an alpine green oolong tea from Taiwan. While relatively new, Ali Shan is one of Taiwan’s most famous tea growing areas, producing beautiful high mountain oolong teas from its misty peaks.

Formosa, meaning ‘beautiful island’, is what Dutch traders called Taiwan. The teas grown here, mainly north of Taipei, continue to be called as such. Tea can be harvested up to six times a year here, although the high mountain teas may be only twice a year. Oolong tea had been a very important export for the island until the 1980’s, when tea growers turned their focus to native oolong enthusiasts. Today, oolong tea is mainly produced for tea lovers in Taiwan, and the rarest, most prized lots are extremely difficult to find in the West. Tea culture is so alive and well in Taiwan, annual competitions are held amongst tea growing districts to reward the most outstanding oolongs each year. Gold medal winning oolongs are some of the most expensive in the world.

This naturally quiet tea is made up of young and delicate tea leaf buds enhanced with the graceful scent of jasmine flowers. Paired together for several nights until the perfect balance is created.

Jasmine Silver Needle white tea is made up of young and elegant tea leaf buds with a whisper of jasmine aura.

Jasmine tea production is a two-step process. The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the jasmine starts to bloom at night. Each evening, the tea is carefully layered with fresh blooms, which will open and give their scent to the tea. In the morning, the flowers are removed and the process is repeated again that evening. This happens several nights in a row, until the tea master has the aroma balance just right. At the end, the tea is refired to dry off any flower moisture imparted to the leaf. This is why some jasmines can have a toasty finish.

The exotic lushness of ripened mangoes mixed with the natural goodness of green tea. Happiness in a cup!

The origins of our Mango Twist tea reside in a Hindu legend, where a mango tree grew from the ashes of the sun princess, who had been incinerated by an evil sorceress. When the ripened mango fell to the ground, the beautiful princess emerged again.

Mangoes originated in Southeast Asia, where they had been cultivated for over 4,000 years. Since their discovery, mango groves have spread to many parts of the world, though mostly the tropical and sub-tropical climates. There are over 1,000 different varieties of the mango plant in existence, and India alone produces half of the world’s supply. Mangoes are used widely in the culinary world, from sweet sticky rice, to delicate chutneys, to spicy and savoury pickles. It’s also an important part of non-food life in several cultures; both the fruit and leaves are used for decoration, religious ceremonies and weddings.

A fresh, crisp green tea paired with sweetly tart red raspberry. A tempting cup made in heaven!

Tempting Raspberry  is a blend of fresh, crisp green tea from China with sweetly tart red raspberry flavour.  The genus Raspberry consists of over 200 distinct species, however, only two of these are presently cultivated. The first mention of raspberry comes from the people of Troy (Helen perhaps?), located in modern-day Turkey. Its original name was ‘ida’ – a reference to the mountain on which it was first spotted. The medicinal properties believed to cluster in its leaves were of more interest to its early users than the sweet, red fruit. Today, you can find red raspberries, as well as black, purple and golden.

A delicately soft-textured everyday green tea with a hint of freshly roasted artichokes.

Fujian Pekoe is a green tea from the Fujian province of China. In professional tea terms, ‘Pekoe’ is actually just a grade of tea, referring to the size of the leaf. Many tea drinkers have seen this term on packages of everyday black teas (most famously, ‘Orange Pekoe’). Green pekoe can only be picked and made in Spring. The condition in the Guzhang county area is suitable for planting this green tea. The Guzhang village factory in Fujian province must make the tea leaves in the same day of picking. They never use yesterday’s leaves to make this tea. As a result, our green pekoe has a pleasant smell with beautiful green soup.
