Behind the scenes we have been working hard to bring you new black tea blends that we believe are uniquely New Zealand. From the strong Capital Tea with pinches of Horopito and Kawakawa to the solid Dunedin Dawn that epitomises the heart of the Otago region (in tea form of course). Last but not least - JAFA Black where we tip our hat to the City of Sails and the iconic NZ sweet. We highly recommend enjoying this cuppa with a few of those sweets on hand.
Share with your tea tribe and we hope you enjoy drinking these brews as much as we loved making them!

CHINA MILKY OOLONG
A brand new tea to our range. Developed in 1980 and originating from Taiwan this milky oolong is light in liquor, creamy in aroma and very delicate on the palate - definitely a must try. Watch the video below to learn a little more about this tea and to get yours click here.
Rooibos (Pronounced: Roy – Boss) is technically not a tea (from the Camelia Sinensis species) but rather a shrub that grows in only one area in the world – the Cederberg in the Western Cape of South Africa in what is now a protected World Heritage site approximately 200km north of Cape Town.
Anecdotally, Rooibos has been used by locals there for more than just drinking pleasure. When there is a skin ailment – it is bathed in. For pregnant and new mums nursing their babies – the tea is drunk in copious amounts to ease the body’s changing biomechanics. To aid in increasing ones appetite – it is also consumed (although of all the urban legends we have heard we are not so sure about this one).
Lastly – the great thing about Rooibos is that it is also caffeine free.
Whether you like your Rooibos flavoured, unflavoured, with a bit of spice, with some lemon or with some real chocolate stars and perhaps a healthy dose of mocha we have no doubt it will surprise and delight the senses.

The Little Tin Of Tea Samples
In the past TEA TOTAL offered customers a set menu of gifting options in so far as samples were concerned. A customer could get a black tea sample box or a fruit tea sample box or a herbal tea sample box. These were great - but numerous customers wanted to try a range of tea across black, green herbal and fruit tea. The customer spoke and we listened.
What we have come up with is the Bespoke Little Tin Of Tea Samples. You still get the great samples of tea and the difference is you the customer get to choose exactly which samples you want - whether it is for yourself or as a gift for someone you care about.
For just $17.5 you get a TEA TOTAL Tea Caddy and 6 loose leaf tea sample bags of your choice.
