Health Benefits

Here's just a few of the benefits of Black Tea...

  • Oral health
  • Heart health
  • High anti-oxidants
  • Digestive health

Black tea is normally consumed with boiling water, but some prefer close to boil at 80 degrees. One teaspoon is recommended. A steeping time of 1 minute for a lighter taste and 3-4 minutes for a stronger taste.

S.R - "Valerian is great. Very relaxing. I have been mixing it with a little bit of Ceylon black tea"

    Tea for grownups

    Sometimes you don't want the fruity bits, the exotic spices, the virtuous health benefits. You just want a proper cup of tea, dammit. This orange pekoe has a clean taste and a pleasing colour, without too much tannin. Perfect to have along with your Agatha Christie on a solitary evening. Go ahead - put on the cashmere cardie, the pearls, and have a real cup of tea in that beautiful Noritake cup your auntie gave you.

    Hi Lisa - haha yes totally correct, sometimes a good black or green tea is all that's needed. Personally I'll have a green tea most mornings and has left me feeling better (and with better skin) than the morning coffee I used to have in my younger days.

    Why buy online with Tea Life? What sets it apart?
    We're not just another tea brand.
    We focus on Australian produce and organic tea wherever possible.

    • Quality: Australian standards impose strict quality control on packing and Hygeine.
    • Freshness: We only pack our tea upon your order. Until that time, it's kept within the bulk of the loose leaf tea. This dramatically increases freshness and taste.
    • Health: The full remedial powers, taste and aroma of our tea are unlocked due to our organic and fresh produce.

      Tea Life is the best

      Haha thank you! I've shared this to our Facebook page :)
      Best Peppermint Tea

      I love peppermint tea and have tried many loose leaf and bag varieties over the years. This tea is the BEST one I have had. I could tell I was in for a magical experience from the moment I opened the packet. It tastes wonderful. I could not recommend this tea highly enough. I will be buying more in the future!

      Hi Sarah - wow what a great review, thank you! That's much appreciated. We've always got a lot on hand as we need to use this for a lot of other blends as well :)
      Great tea and great service

      The Teas are great taste and awesome quaility love drinking the night wish

      Hi Leanne, thank you - this one was created as it's different to the rest of the other bedtime teas such as goodnight sleeping.
      Another lovely mellow tea bloom

      The yellow chrysanthemum bloom is very beautiful sitting on it's bed of green as this bloom opens into a slightly aniseed smelling tea at first, but when fully brewed tastes like a mellow silver needle tea that has a very subtle, fruity, sweet overtone. It's not overpowering or dominating in anyway and is very refreshing.

      Hi Casey, thank you for your review! I really hope those samples have arrived....
      Happy with my tea

      Unable to purchase Decaf leaf tea from the supermarket It was refreshing to find that i could purchase this seemingly elusive product online at "Tea Life".
      The service was excellent and the tea arrived promptly. I'm very happy with my tea purchase and would recommend this company. Many thanks Tea Life.

      Hi Liz, thank you. We'd love to expand our decaf range actually but it's difficult to get a hold of. Hopefully this year will bring some new decaf teas!
