A wonderful therapeutic tea. Great for stress and relieving anxiety. With the warmer summer months upon us, making a pot and keeping it chilled in the fridge is a refreshing way to cool down. Great service and prompt postage receipt.

Hi JP, one of our more popular teas here, and definitely something we try to keep well stocked of. Glad you're enjoying it.

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

  • Quality: Australian standards impose strict quality control on tea made within Australia.
  • 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.

We understand that shipping fees are a little annoying, especially on low cost items such as tea. That's why we offer free shipping on all orders over $50 and $2 for shipping for up to 80g. Stock up on your favourite tea blends at Tea Life and get free shipping throughout the whole of Australia!

  • We're located in Sydney, so please allow some time for delivery based on your location. $2 shipping takes 5-7 days on average but can be much faster. $6 shipping is via registered post and takes on average 3 days.

  • We also offer Express Yellow Bag Australia Post at $8, which is free for all orders over $80. If your order is classified as such - we will prioritize your order to ensure it ships same day. Please understand that even though this is classified as 'next day delivery' by Australia Post, sometimes it can fall slightly short of this!

  • For Express, the cut off shipping time is 6pm for Australia Post. We of course need time to pick and pack too! So in general - the earlier an order is placed, the easier it will be for us to make that cut off time. We can guarantee any order will be sent same day if any order is sent prior to 3pm, excluding out of stock items.
    Express delivery orders are always given priority. In the event we don't have stock of that tea when express post is used, you will be refunded $2 to take the order back down to 3 day shipping - but an express shipping bag will still be used once back in stock.

Search is over.

The quality and potency of this green tea is outstanding!
Have been in search for really good green tea for many years now. We drink it nearly everyday. Have tried Japanese, Chinese, etc.
The search is over. Will only get this one from here on.
Almost finished the big bag just bought. Reordering now!
Thank you TeaLife! :)

Hi Elise, Thanks so much! This one is grown on a small farm in Australia as a family business - with the hand roasted version of our green tea coming from the same place too. We've had similar feedback for this tea, so we'll definitely be keeping it around for as long as they can supply us. We will hopefully be able to offer larger bags in the future once we get our act together and increase our storage space! - Toby

The order was very quickly processed and sent out. The quality of the product is also fantastic.

Hi Kate, Thank you! We have a large fragrance company in America using our Melissa Tea too, so the quality is definitely there! Thanks for your review. - Toby
Great service

Great personalised service and an all Australian product, how could you go wrong?! Love the packaging of the teas too.

Thank you Jenny! Still unsure if the packaging is too cute, but it's a good reflection of the personality of Tea Life. :)
High quality and delicious!

Firstly, I have to say the customer service is really good. The parcel took a little longer to come than I expected, so I emailed to check and I received a response straight away and an offer to re-send for free. Thankfully it did arrive and it is packed in a way that makes for easy storing. Also it tastes FANTASTIC! I used it in a special food recipe for an anniversary gift. My husband says it tastes great on its own too. I'll definitely be purchasing again.

Hi L, Thanks for getting back to me on this one! Something i'll normally do when asked where a delivery is, is ask to wait about 1 more day because 99% of the time it will turn up the day after an enquiry! Sorry for the transit time this time around, it's not really a common occurrence. I'm glad you like the tea! - Toby
