At Tea Blend we are passionate about tea. We source the finest ingredients for our expertly blended teas with a full range available to suit all tastes and desires as a healthy alternative to coffee or sugary drinks. We believe in providing natural, authentic tasting teas and therefore minimize the use of flavouring in most of our teas to bring out the natural flavours of the ingredients. We also source organic ingredients where possible and all of our teas are blended by a certified tea blender.
Those who want to express their individuality can design their own custom blended tea. We also offer tea blending parties that provide a social and interactive environment where you will learn about tea and try creating your own unique taste to suit your style.
Tea contains a variety of polyphenols, including catechins, theaflavins, tannins, flavonoids and epicatechins, which are naturally occurring plant chemicals that have strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are agents that protect cells against damage caused by free radicals.
Some studies have found that teas may help with a variety of conditions such as stroke, reducing blood pressure, high cholesterol, weight loss and neurological disorders and appear to have antimicrobial qualities. Teas are also used to reduce stress, increase energy levels, bring about mental alertness and generally promote a feeling of wellbeing.
