The Scent of Asia Tea Collection

The rich history of tea in Asia is unparalleled, and influences many facets of culture within China, Taiwan, Japan and many other eastern countries. Each tea often has its own orign story, based in fantastic mythology often taking place thousands of years ago which have survived to this very day.

Blue sleepy time yea

Very happy with this tea. Works a treat, mild flavour and blue colour is very enticing. Thank you Tea Life for another magical tea.

Hi Patti, thanks for your great review! This has always been one of our most loved blends, so we were a little nervous to add the blue and change it a bit but it seems to have gone down well.
Love it!

This is a really comforting, mild flavoured tea. I loved the service and the personal touches on the packaging. Will definitely be buying more Aussie organic teas!

Hi Jill, Thanks for your review! We've seen good results from this one and happy to see it help some of our customers.
