Our wide selection of imported finest quality teas and herbal infusions are blended and packed in-house in loose leaf café packs.
The tea plant, botanically known as Camellia sinensis, is a hardy evergreen with fragrant white flowers. When dried and fermented, the leaves are steeped in boiling water to produce an aromatic, slightly bitter drink referred to as tea.
The Bonissimo Classic Black Tea collection is blended and packed in house from a selection of premium teas from India, Ceylon and China. Our exclusive English Breakfast Tea is a popular favourite.
Green tea, like black tea, is also produced from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush. However, the process involves little or no oxidation.
Green tea, which originated in China is now gaining in popularity throughout the rest of the world especially in traditional black tea markets.
Chai Tea is created when traditional black or green teas are blended with aromatic Indian spices and herbs.
Originating in India where tea was historically viewed as a herbal medicine, chai tea has now gained widespread popularity.
Unlike true teas which are prepared with cured leaves of the tea plant Camellia sinensis, herbal teas or tisanes are made by infusing herbs, spices, or other plant material in hot water.
In many countries, the name ‘tea’ can only be used for Camellia sinensis leaves. Therefore the words ‘tisane’ or ‘herbal infusion’ are used in place of ‘herbal tea’.
Our herbal infusions are blended and packed in-house in loose leaf café packs. You can also purchase from us herbal teas in convenient quality silk pouch bags from SereniTEA® .
The organic Fairtrade sereniTEA collection is sourced from the gardens of Darjeeling and Assam. Assam teas are bolder and brisker in flavour as they are grown at sea level in humid weather. Darjeeling teas are grown on the steep slopes of the Himalayan ranges up to 5000ft high where the cooler climate produces tea with a delicate and muscatel aroma.
Fairtrade means that for each tea you buy, part of the proceeds returns to the producers.
