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.

    The perfect orange pekoe

    An orange, light, versatile pekoe tea. Very refreshing, not as heavy as any other I had, definitely what i would want from this cup of tea. An orange pekoe should be just like this one, light enough to be had during the day all day. Also I highly recommend trying this with their herbs, brew it with some lavender for example (ratio of 1 to 1/4) or any other tea life herb, you will get many flavors of orange pekoe plus the benefits of the herbs :))

      Fantastic product the best service & communication ive had in years and I cannot recommend this product and company to highly

      Hi David, wow thank you. We always do our best.
      Okay, I’m convinced!

      Reading through the reviews of the Cacao Chocolate Husk Tea I thought “well, maybe it’s vaguely chocolatey in taste, but these are the opinions of tea drinkers, not hard core chocolate drinkers such as me”. Still, curiosity saw me ordering the small 40g pack which arrived with other tea varieties I decided to sample. It’s been almost a fortnight since I received the Cacoa Tea and this morning I actually got around to opening the packet. I followed the suggestion about crushing the husks before steeping for 7 minutes and cautiously took a sip... Wow! Everything that other reviewers have posted is true! So here I am, back on the Tealife site, nursing my second cup of Cacao Tea and ordering the 160g packet...

      Hi Liz, wow thank you I love this review :) We're reallllly hoping to get the price down this year further. It's always a bit of a pricey tea but we'll do our best.
