This all Australian tea has been 10 years in the making.
One of our dreams has always been to have a tea made up of entirely native ingredients, sourced entirely from local businesses. Over the last 10 years we have watched small businesses trading in indigenous plants grow to the point where we can now reliably use them to produce this lovely, native tea: "Waltzing Myrtle".
Waltzing Myrtle is a peppery pick me up, and it's getting popular - everyone who has tried it so far has come back wanting more.
Lemon myrtle provides a tangy base that pairs nicely with the deep, back-of-the-throat heat of Australian mountain pepper. Throw in a little aniseed, cinnamon, and rosella* (which is basically Australian hibiscus) and you've got a crisp, zesty herbal.
Most of the ingredients in this tea are native plants sourced from businesses run by Indigenous Australians.
Ingredients: Lemon myrtle, cinnamon myrtle, aniseed myrtle, mountain pepper leaf and berry, Egyptian Hibiscus.
*At the present time we are unable to source local Rosella and have substituted Egyptian Hibiscus. It is disappointing but sometimes the weather is not our friend.
