If you like loose leaf teas I recommend that you try Harney and Son's. I particularly like Cranberry Autumn Blend.

A blend that combines black teas from China and India with dried cranberries, oranges and cranberry flavoring.


One of our most popular teas is Hot Cinnamon. People just love the mixture of black teas, cinnamons, orange and sweet cloves.

They also have many other types of teas. I also like to drink jasmine or green teas.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

A strong black tea brewed over an open fire.

Boil the Billy
Add required amount of tea
Cover and allow to brew for a couple of minutes (leave by the side of the fire).
Swing billy around three times to get the leave to sink
Serve sweet & black.

I'm not able to consume caffeine for medical reasons, so I stick to herbal teas, which is actually no problem as I've always loved them. Some of my top favourites are peppermint, fennel, ginger, licorice root (it's a mild anise flavour, not a ragging licorice taste), camomile and cinnamon

Something else that is good to try is adding about 1/4 teaspoon matcha to your favorite tea when brewing. It really deepens the flavor. And of course if you have never tried Japanese teas your really missing out.

Let's talk tea! I love chamomile, tila and Yogi Tea’s organic Healing Formulas which can help ease and relax you. I like to take them when I'm getting ready to mellow out in the evening. Get a restful night’s sleep with Yogi Tea's Bedtime and stay anxiety-free with Yogi's Calming and let Kava Stress Relief quiet the body and mind. Some I take while I'm entertaining is Green tea which serves as an antioxidant and Cinnamon/Apple tea when serving dessert...for the ones who don't drink coffee. Enjoy your tea!
