Our Facebook page is abuzz with giddy excitement over the announcement of our Big 5 loose leaf tea launch. Here at The Tea Merchant, we are equally thrilled, and look forward to a wonderful launch over the next few weeks and into the new year.

Not only have we announced the release of our new range, but we have also kicked off with a fun and mathematically tricky competition for our loyal fans. Do you consider yourself a maths boff? Head on over to our Facebook page to take part in our first competition, and remember to use your good old BODMAS rules you learnt in school.  Every correct entrant will stand the chance of winning a Tea Merchant hamper to the value of R500, and they will be entered into the grand draw for a further R1500 voucher to shop at The Tea Merchant stores. Doesn’t that sounds delightful?


Over the course of the next 10 weeks, we’ll be rolling out our delicious and beautiful range of loose leaf teas. The first one to be released is the The Heart of Africa.

Heart of Africa is the ultimate romantic, with dark chocolate stars and white chocolate rasps, sending your taste buds into a magical dream world. With a flavor combination of roasted almonds, hints of chocolate and rooibos tea, this new blend is packed with all the delightful ingredients of a Tiramisu Truffle. It’s no wonder that this tea has stolen the Heart of Africa.

For best results, steep for 4 to 7 minutes and enjoy the aroma of the Heart of Africa before it hits your taste buds.

Heart of Africa is available for purchase from our national stores, and online here
