a revelation!

I bought your Portuguese Cinnamon Basil tea a few weeks ago and it has transformed my life. I adore it. I basically drink coffee in the morning and then spend the afternoon decaffeinating myself, so I drink a variety of herbal teas. They are insipid and monotone in comparison. I didn’t know herbal tea could be so flavoursome and interesting and characterful. I make it in my little teapot and have several brews. It is also very pretty. I love it. Thank you.

Tasting Notes

A deliciously soothing herbal tea with deep cinnamon flavours and a subtle hint of strawberry.


Use 1g of tea per 150ml of water.


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


Infuse for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


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