Our Herbal Tea Infusions

While tea is a single plant with a unique history, herbal tea infusions promise the rich variety of the entire plant kingdom. They draw on herbs, fruits, flowers and spices from around the world, each one distinct with a unique flavour and aroma. A common misconception is to call a herbal infusion a 'herbal tea' when they are, in fact, not tea at all.

The flowers, herbs and fruits that make up our herbal infusions are selected with the same meticulous approach as our loose-leaf tea so that they burst with vibrancy. At most, we might combine two or three of these to create complementary blends - such as our Fruit & Floral range or Lemongrass & Ginger, but largely, we focus on the goodness and authenticity of one single flavour. 

Where Do They Come From?

To preserve the flavours and aromas, we believe in the beauty of intervening as little as possible. Our non-blended herbal infusions are sourced from one single origin - just as our loose-leaf teas are - so that they capture the authenticity and clarity of each flavour.

Most importantly, our herbal infusions are all naturally flavoured. The fruits, herbs and flowers are picked and slowly dried in ambient conditions and are handled with care to protect the beautiful colour, essential oils and rich aromas. They make a fresh and uplifting alternative to caffeinated tea.

Tips for Making Herbal Tea Infusions

Fruity or cleansing, intense or delicate – once you’ve chosen your favourite flavour, you’ll want to make a cup. Here’s how to get the very best from your herbal tea infusion.

Tip One

Only measure out what you need. 

Getting the tea to water ratio correct is essential in extracting the very best flavour. The majority of our herbal infusions need 2 tbsp per cup (250ml), but some are less so always check the recipe.


Tip Two

Heat your water to 95-100°C. 

Use filtered or softened water in your kettle for the best possible taste experience.




Tip Three

Infuse to taste.

We'd recommend 3-4 minutes but with herbal infusions, it's really how you prefer it.

If you wish, re-infuse for a further cup - all of our range are suitable for one re-infusion.

Tip Four

Always store your tea in a cool and dry area.

Our tea bags and tea caddies are designed to ensure that the tea stays fresh – they’re airtight, sealed, and opaque to block out sunlight.
