Tea subscription - just for you
Tea subscription - just for you
Your relaxation time, made easy.
Each month, you’ll receive a beautiful box filled with two different teas, each with a unique fragrance and flavour (see below for this month's teas). You’ll also receive information about the provenance and flavour profile of your tea selection, so that you can savour the knowledge – as well as the flavour – behind the tea you’re enjoying.
If you’re a regular tea-drinker – that is, drinking 1-2 cups a day – the quantity of tea (2 x 20g pouches) will last you around half the month; enough to restore, relax and enjoy alongside your regular tea-drinking routine. Every month, we choose one darker tea (dark, black or highly-oxidised oolong) and one lighter style tea (lightly-oxidised oolong, green, yellow or white) so there should always be one tea that suits your taste buds, plus another to help you experience a new flavour.
The subscription price of $27 per month includes shipping (a surcharge applies for rural deliveries). Delivery is to New Zealand only.
If you would like to try our teas and service without committing to a monthly subscription, you can purchase a sample box here.
Savour the flavour
To make it easy for you to brew the perfect cup of artisan tea, we recommend you include our tea glass infuser with your first subscription box, at an additional one-off cost of $30. If you purchase the infuser with your subscription we will include our long-handled teaspoon and delivery, both free of charge (please select 'Add to cart' above before you select an option below).
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 January box:
Ben Shan Oolong
Oolong tea, China
Flavor notes: milky, floral, vegetal ~ light-bodied
Ben Shan is one of the four famous oolongs of Anxi county – known as the tea capital of China. It is a lightly-oxidised oolong with a unique, complex flavour. When steeped, Ben Shan emits an intruiging milky, floral aroma. In the mouth the flavour evolves from milky to floral to vegetal and finally leaves you with a cooling, minty aftertaste. Ben Shan is light-bodied with a beautifully soft mouthfeel. Premium grade Spring 2021 harvest from Gan De village, Anxi county, Fujian province, China.
**Please note we have sold out of Himalayan Royale below and are now including Wild Forest Purple black tea in place of this in our January boxes. **
Himalayan Royale Handcrafted Tips
Black tea, Nepal
Flavor notes: gardenia, eucalyptus and pine ~ medium bodied & aromatic
Himalayan Royale Handcrafted Tips is Jun Chiyabari’s signature black tea. Harvested on 3 and 7 May 2021 and carefully crafted under the tea maker’s careful supervision. The infusion releases an opulent floral and citrus fragrance. Medium-bodied with a fresh acidity and notes of gardenia, eucalyptus and pine.
Jun Chiyabari, meaning ‘Moonlit tea garden’, is a family run, high mountain tea estate led by brothers Bachan and Lochan Gyawali. The tea plants are set in small plots scattered between forests, bamboo groves, boulders and streams, at an altitude of 1650m to 2100m in Dhankuta, east Nepal. The terroir, the brothers’ commitment to organic production and careful processing creates rare, high quality, light and aromatic full-leaf teas. Organic certification by IMO.
