If you have a passion for flavour, read on to discover nine delicious tea blends that will appeal to the most adventurous of tea drinkers.
1. Chili Chocolate
If you’re looking to spice up (literally) your tea game, look no further. The chili chocolate blend is rich, warm and chocolatey – with a hint of spice!
The combination of chili and cocoa was originally crafted by the ancient Aztecs, leading to the popularity of the blend throughout Central and South America.
- Ceylon Orange Pekoe
- Cacao shells
- Chocolate chips
- Red pepper
- Chili pepper
- Natural chocolate chilli-pepper flavour
A delightful and exotic mix, this black tea blend can be enjoyed as is, or with milk to enhance its creamy texture. If you’re ready to spice up your tea today, shop the Chili Chocolate Blend.
2. Lime Fizz
Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. A long time favourite, the Lime Fizz exudes all the tartness of lemon and lime but is balanced with subtly sweet notes of apple.
- Apple cubes
- Orange peels
- Lemon verbena
- Pink pepper
- Calendula petals
- Natural lime ginger flavour
Delicious both hot and iced, this is an all-time best-selling fruit blend. For a sweet sip with a tangy kick, check out the Lime Fizz Blend here.
3. Popcorn Blend (aka Genmaicha)
Popcorn…in tea? Yep, you read that right.
Known as our Genmaicha Blend, this is a Japanese Bancha Green Tea with toasted popped rice kernels.
In most Western blends of Genmaicha, popcorn is usually substituted for rice. But in our version, it’s the real authentic deal of traditional Genmaicha. The toasted popped rice kernels give this green tea an extra nutty boost!
- Japanese Bancha
- Rice kernels
Go nuts with our Genmaicha Blend!
4. Turmeric Spice
Sip up some spice with this next blend!
For those of you familiar with turmeric’s strong flavour in curry dishes, don’t be alarmed. Through the combination of other complimentary herbs and spices, the Turmeric Spice tea blend does not taste as bitter as you might expect.
In fact, the blend has a more soothing and rich flavour. What’s more, these ingredients are known for their vast array of medicinal properties, resulting in:
- Reduction of inflammation
- Boosted immune function
- Reduction of cardiovascular complications
- Management of IBS symptoms
So, if ready to up your healthy habits today, shop the Turmeric Spice Blend here.
5. Ginger Lemon Rooibos
Ginger and lemon and rooibos, oh my! This tea blend packs a triple punch of refreshing flavour from South Africa.
Like other green rooibos blends, this one avoids oxidation in its production process, leaving it closer to its natural state with a lighter body.
- Finest Green Rooibos from South Africa
- Calendula petals
- Natural flavour
Light and refreshing, but still not your average cup of tea, this blend is a safe bet for all you risk-averse tea testers out there. To add a little boost of adventure to your tea collection, shop the Ginger Lemon Rooibos Blend here.
6. Valentino: Quince Ginger & Fruits
Ever heard of a quince? It’s basically a cross between an apple and a pear, can smell like tropical fruit and was the ancient fruit of fertility in wedding ceremonies (who knew)!
It has an astringent tart but sweet flavour, and when made into a black tea with ginger and other fruits, it becomes an exotic delightful blend with a ginger finish.
- Ceylon orange pekoe
- Apple cubes
- Lemon peel
- Ginger pieces
- Calendula petals and safflower
- Natural quince ginger flavour
If the sound of this tea tickles your fancy, shop the Valentino Blend here.

Ever mixed black tea and banana before? Probably not, but it’s actually way better than you might think.
This tea makes for a sweet cup, with the delicious aroma of ripe Sri Lankan bananas.
- Ceylon Orange Pekoe
- Candied Banana pieces
- Natural banana flavour
You can try it on its own or add a dash of milk for a creamier, tropical taste.
8. Licorice Blend
Licorice…some love it while some just can’t stand it. If you’re a fan of the polarizing treat or open-minded enough to explore something new, perhaps the licorice blend is for you!
- Organic Rooibos
9. Pitta Balance
Our taste tour now comes to an end in the southeast region of the Indian subcontinent.
The Pitta Balance is a herbal blend from a line of Ayurvedic (alternative medicine) infusions known to help cool down the drinker. With a minty, sweet and slightly tart taste, the Pitta Balance is a lovely (and healthy) choice of tea!
