organic tea - kapow tea temples
Jacqui Wales started Libertine Blends in 2014 by blending delicious, organic tea – the kind that made her feel great and tasted delicious, the kind of tea she wanted to share with her family, enjoy in a cafe and gift to friends. To be a Libertine is to have a lust for life and she wanted to build a brand that was about more than tea, it was about nourishing yourself, and having the energy to see the joy in every day.
Blending tea starts with the knowledge that the right tea can shift the mood in a moment, and the vision that tea can be elevated beyond being a healthy choice to a welcome part of our busy routines. That they can be a way to love yourself first.
Teas and herbs are selected for both for their flavour and properties. Working with naturopaths, carefully exploring each blend over time, the range has developed into a range to suit every moment.
Libertine Tea range offers a range of hand crafted teas, in either loose tea or tea bag/temple offerings.
15 tea temples
Loose leaf tea is generously portioned into tea temples. Tea temples allow excellent infusion for optimum flavour and let our beautiful blends shine through as you can see the herbs, spices and premium quality tea. They are made of cornstarch and are commercially compostable. Perfect for busy moments or to take to work. Makes a giant cup or medium pot.
Kapow – kawakawa, lemongrass, cardamon, chilli
This is a bold and warming blend with native kawakawa and chilli leading with a punchy, peppery flavour. The blend is balanced by the freshness of lemongrass and the rounded sweet finish of fragrant cardamon.
Sometimes described as a New Zealand chai, this blend combines herbs to strengthen digestion and help improve circulation. Antibacterial, and antiviral properties help sustain good health.
WHEN TO DRINK THIS TEA
A wonderful blend in the morning for caffeine-free boost to your day, and after a meal to support digestion. Infuse a strong cup when you are feeling a chill, to ease a sore throat or need an energising pick me up.
