So, here we are on our forth tea in the Big Five launch! Which is your favourite so far? We have had an incredible response to our competitions on Facebook, and we look forward to announcing the grand winner early in the new year.

Are you a sucker for a good brain teaser? You could WIN a tea hamper to the value of R500 AND you’ll be entered into the grand draw for a R1500 voucher from The Tea Merchant.

Simply locate the competition post on our Facebook page, post your answer in the comments, and remember to share with friends and family so they can enter too. The winner will be announced on 11 December 2017, and grand winner will be announced early in the new year.

Number four in our Big Five reveal is ‘African Sky’ – a beautifully organic and fully fermented black tea. African Sky is unique in it’s blend, as it is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water, which essentially steams the tea leaves.

Also known as Black Sencha, this tea may be enjoyed either hot or cold, and has a smooth taste. Just like the nostalgia of a camp fire under the African Sky, this blend will make you feel truly at home.


For best taste results, serve 16 grams per litre of water, with a water temperature of 100C, and steep for 1 to 3 minutes.
