Spice Dream

SPICE DREAM is a deliciously healthy and exotic Chai Latte blend with a delicate balance of sweetness and spice. With the Australian tea market bursting with chai options and variations, I found that many of the powders and syrups available were full of rubbish- milk solids, flavourings and a whole lot of sugar! I wanted to make a spicy brew that was devoid of these nasties- something that was natural and pure and in line with what we stand for at Byron Bay Tea Company.

Fortify

FORTIFY is the super-charged newcomer to the BBTC range of herbal teas- a wellness tonic combining the powerful healing benefits of medicinal mushrooms and Tulsi with Cacao and a delicate blend of spices. Medicinal mushrooms have been a personal favourite of mine for years. I keep a powder on hand at all times when I need that extra zing! Fortify has been a long time in the making and involved a little trial and error to get the balance of ingredients just right. Cacao matches the richness of the medicinal mushrooms and seemed like the perfect addition to ...

Cancer and Phytonutrients

I went to a seminar on the Integrative treatment of cancer a couple of weeks ago. Green tea was one of the therapeutic phytonutrients, along with Tumeric and Resveratrol, that starred on the day- due to their potent antioxidant actions.

Top 3 BBTC Teas for Winter

As the days get shorter, the nights get longer and a chilly winter sets in, we need to adjust our lifestyles to match the natural rhythm of a different season. Winter is the season for “storage” in Chinese Medicine. It is the storage of winter that allows for the aliveness of Spring. It is the storage of Qi, Blood, Yin, and Yang that is important and this is done by using an appropriate diet for the cooler seasons, as well as modifying our lifestyle in other ways.

Tea Tasting: Steps on How to do Tea Tasting

Like savouring a fine wine, tasting premium tea is similar. Tea masters around the world use standardised cupping procedures where measurements determine the amount of leaf, the temperature of water, and infusion time. There is also a time-honoured set of rules to assess the flavour of tea and this can differ across cultures and include slurping, sipping, swallowing, or spitting. The most frequently used is the “slurp-and-sip” method and this involved slurping tea from a spoon and spitting the tea rather than swallowing. Recently, ...

Somethings Brewing at Byron Bay Tea Company

I sound like an absolute dag but I love herbs and always have! I have always been interested in Natural Medicine and the healing power of herbs and I wanted others to experience their benefits. I felt like there was a gap in the market 14 years ago when all you could find on a supermarket shelf was plain Chamomile or Peppermint tea. I observed that many people were interested in drinking them for their health benefits but didn’t really enjoy the flavours.

How To Make The Best Brew

I love sitting down and making a great brew of tea to enjoy with friends, or as a way to unwind for myself in the afternoon. In our fast-paced world, I believe we have lost touch with the art of making tea. Long before coffee was a twinkle in the eye of a barista, the ritual of brewing the right tea for your visitors was a way of welcoming people to your home in both Eastern and Western cultures.
