Tea 101

Technically “tea” refers to Camellia sinensis — the same evergreen shrub that gives us rich black teas, tightly rolled oolongs and delicate white teas — but we like to think of tea as pretty much anything that can be infused in water. The possibilities are endless (and delicious).

Fun, delicious and packed with benefits, each tea type is its own little world.

  • Green

    Healthy, energizing and delicious, green tea is the most popular drink on the planet — after water.

  • Matcha

    Energizing matcha is made by finely grinding full tea leaves, so you get all the benefits of green tea with every sip.

  • Herbal

    Our range of caffeine-free fruit and herbal infusions has everything from classic tisanes to the latest superfruits.

  • Black

    Black tea is rich, energizing and full-bodied. We love both traditional pure teas and exciting new blends.

  • White

    Loved for its light flavour and sweetness, this delicate tea is as close to the living tea bush as you can get.

  • Oolong

    Oolong tea is somewhere between green and black tea. Watch the tightly rolled leaves slowly unfurl in your cup!

  • Pu’erh

    Traditionally made by aging tea leaves in mountain caves, earthy pu’erh is thought to boost metabolism and aid digestion.

  • Maté

    We love energizing herbs like yerba mate, guayusa and yaupon for the long-lasting, jitter-free boost they give us.

  • Rooibos

    Made from a small South African shrub, mineral-packed rooibos is naturally sweet, hydrating and caffeine-free.

From ancient wellness to modern medicine, tea has been celebrated for its health benefits for centuries. It’s hydrating, energizing and packed with antioxidants. It may help detoxify and boost brain function, mindfulness and immunity. It can speed up your metabolism or help you slow down at the end of a stressful day.

And with blends this tasty, what do you have to lose?

How To Brew The Perfect Cup Of Tea

Ready to get started? Here’s what you need to know. Our teas are sold by weight, with 100 g (4 oz) making an average of 30-40 cups. So if you’re making one cup per day, it’ll last you about a month. There are a few basic steps to follow.

  1. Measure your tea

    Measure your tea

    We recommend 1-2 Perfect Spoonfuls per tea as a general rule of thumb.

  2. Pour your water

    Pour your water

    Some of our teas call for cooler water, so the leaves don’t burn and become bitter. An easy trick is to let your kettle sit for a few minutes before pouring.

  3. Let it steep

    Let it steep

    Different teas call for different steep times. While some can turn bitter after more than a few minutes, most herbals and maté blends can infuse all day.
