Tea subscription - just for you
Tea subscription - just for you
Invest in your wellbeing, every day
Your monthly tea subscription gives you permission to take healthy time out for yourself, and make that a habit each and every day. It offers you a regular invitation to feel restored, calm and centred. That restorative moment infuses serenity, contentment and reflection time into your life. This gives you more clarity; makes you more decisive, more grounded and better able to address the challenges of your day. Investing in your wellbeing is not a luxury; it's smart and, these days, it's a necessity.
What you receive with your subscription
In the first week of every month, you’ll receive a beautiful box filled with two different specialty teas, each with a unique fragrance and flavour (see below for this month's teas). Your first box comes with our tea guide to help you steep and taste your teas.
If you’re a regular tea-drinker, drinking 1-2 cups a day, the quantity of tea (2 x 20g pouches) will last you around half the month. We focus on high-quality, small-batch teas and each month, we choose one darker tea (dark, black or highly-oxidised oolong) and one lighter style tea (lightly-oxidised oolong, green, yellow or white) for the box. So there should always be one tea that suits your taste buds, plus another to help you experience a new flavour.
Who is the subscription for?
If you consider yourself a 'foodie'; if you are curious and love trying new flavours or taking part in food and beverage tastings; and if you are interested in learning more about tea then our tea subscription is perfect for you. With specialty tea, the flavours you experience may be different to what you are used to. So, when you drink it, you will have a wonderful experience if are curious and choose to adopt an adventurous palette.
If you love the comfort of your tea tasting the same each time, your best option is to stick to your normal tea brand rather than join our subscription.
Choose from three options for your first box:
Option 1: Small box ~ $29
~ teas only (2 x 20g pouches)
Option 2: Large box ~ $59* (save $20)
~ teas as above and our tea glass infuser and long-handled teaspoon, packaged in our large gift box, to help you prepare and drink your tea with ease.
Option 3: Ultra-large box ~ $359* (save $48)
~ teas, tea glass infuser, long-handled teaspoon (as in Option 2) as well as the Fellow Stagg EKG temperature variable kettle and a Rhino pocket scale. These are the essential tools all serious tea drinkers need to expertly prepare and enjoy their tea.
*Options 2 and 3 are special rates just for tea subscribers. All subsequent deliveries after the first box will be the small box with two teas at $29 per month (NZ delivery, rural surcharge applies).
We believe that knowledge is powerful; that by discovering and learning about different types of tea, you will have a more enriching experience. By purchasing the monthly subscription box you give us permission to add your email address to our mailing list, so we can send you information about your teas each month. Please let us know if you wish to opt-out.
In our August 2022 box:
Thyolo White Peony
White tea, Malawi
Flavour: light and supple ~ hints of papaya, apple, summer grass
Thyolo White Peony is a hand-harvested, large leaf white tea from Satemwa Tea Estates. The infusion is smooth and supple. Sugary-sweet notes of dried papaya and steamed apple give way to hints of summer grass and ginger. To create this tea, each pluck is three leaves and a bud. Gathered together, the leaves are dried in partial sun and shade, before being finished in the tea factory’s air drier. November 2021 harvest.
Satemwa Black OP1
Black tea, Malawi
Flavour: smoke, spice, wood, dried fruit ~ medium-bodied
A classic, brisk, full-leaf black tea from the Shire Highlands in Thyolo, southern Malawi. Satemwa OP1 is a small batch tea, grown and hand-plucked by a local farmer, then purchased and processed by Satemwa Tea Estates. This is their April 2021 harvest. At 100'C the infusion is clean and brisk with notes of smoke, wood and spice. 95/90'C softens the infusion and emphasises its fruity notes.
Founded in 1923, Satemwa is a small, family-run tea estate in Malawi, Africa. Satemwa is certified by Fair Trade & Rainforest Alliance and has a strong focus on sustainability and ethical tea production.
