A savoury delight

Delicious tea for drinking in the afternoon. Has some savoury undertones that I haven’t seen in tea before. The flavour was familiar so if you’re afraid that this will be too unusual, I would say there’s no need to hesitate.

Tasting Notes

Koseret has complex and exciting flavours. It has delicious aromas of basil and tomato vines. The taste is mildly sweet and herbaceous, with a light lemon finish. 

Cold infusion brings out a more pronounced tomato vine note and sweetness.

Both hot and cold, it makes an extremely refreshing drink.


For a hot infusion use 1g of leaf per 150ml of water.

For a cold infusion use 1g per litre of water.


For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.

For a cold infusion, fill at room temperature and place in the fridge to infuse.


Infuse for 1 - 3 minutes, tasting regularly.

(This is one of the rare herbal leafs that will become bitter with longer infusion, so make sure you try little and often.)

For a cold infusion, infuse for 8 hours or overnight.


You can infuse these herbs at least three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
