Mama D's Tea

Ingredients - organically grown black Ceylon tea (single estate)

Our Mama D's Tea is a recipe created by Mama D in 1989 when Sri Lanka was engulfed by war and insurgence.

Due to numerous hardships in the country, Dissa (one of our master tea makers) and family couldn’t get a cuppa for months.

So Mama D headed out secretly & plucked tea leaves and through adopting a traditional recipe lost for more than a century, she created this special brew.

She sundried her leaves, hand pounded them in a stone mortar, hand-rolled and fired them on a traditional hearth. Mama D's is as strong as she is. The result is a full-bodied, ultra-strong cuppa, easy to drink with or without milk.

This loose leaf tea is a perfect special gift for the eco-conscious tea lover in your life.

FAQ

More about tea

Yes! Tea is known to be packed with antioxidants to boost your immune system, fight off inflammation, and even ward off cancer and heart disease. Regularly drinking tea can have a lasting impact on your wellness. 

Flavours vary from region to region, as does the caffeine content. The climate, soil, and rainfall all effect the caffeine levels in tea as it is a natural product harvested from the camellia sinensis plant. The level of caffeine in our loose leaf teas vary. Herbal tisanes such as our Pure Peppermint and Blue Lemongrass are caffeine free.

Fully fermented black tea leaves which are the basis of all breakfast teas contain the highest amount of caffeine. Green tea has less caffeine, followed by white tea which contains a minimal amount of caffeine. While you will get a caffeine hit from your pot of tea, it is significantly less than you would from coffee.

Artisinal loose leaf teas are created in smaller batches and hand-picked from single estates. We know exactly where all our tea is grown, and who grows it. We want to be sure that each bag of tea we sell is doing good for the local community where our favourite tea plantations are.

Absolutely! Tea is made to be brewed and shared and it's the perfect gift for the novice or expert tea drinker in your life. If you're unsure of what kind of tea to gift - you could choose a gift card or flick us an email and we'll help you decide!
