Blue Lemongrass

Ingredients- 100% pure lemongrass, butterfly pea flowers

Voted people’s favourite, this organically grown colour changing brew is 100% pure fun! 

Water brings out a turquoise blue, soda changes colour to a deeper royal blue, and adding a few drops of citrus changes the colour again, this time to purple.

Our loose leaf organically grown Blue Lemongrass is made from pure, high quality, hand-cut lemongrass with intense lemon and mint flavours.

The lemongrass is cut using an invention designed by Ashok, one of the estates key team members.

'I grew up on a tea plantation. But I always dreamed of becoming an inventor. At Amba Estate we needed a machine to cut our lemongrass better. So I made one, using only things I could finding the area. My chopper cuts the lemongrass perfectly every time. I'm honoured to share this with you.' - Ashok

A totally unique brew perfect for treating yourself or to purchase as a gift for the tea lover in your whanau.

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!
