ROAST LEVELS

Medium Roast

The Medium Roast is brown in colour and a non-oily surface because the beans are not roasted long enough for the oils to break through to the surface.  Delightfully aromatic, roasted to deliver a smooth, balanced lighter taste.

Viennese Roast

The Viennese Roast is slightly darker than medium offering a smooth cup which is slightly bolder in taste.

French Roast

The French Roast is generally a darker, richer and more intense taste.  Darker in colour with some oil on the surface and with a pleasant aftertaste.  Some people prefer this as their Espresso roast.

Italian Roast

The Italian Roast is the darkest roast we carry.  Shiny black beans with an oily and pronounced strong flavour for those who enjoy a stronger cup.  The darker the roast, the less acidity and caffeine will be found.

➡️ Loose Tea Selection

Black Teas

Black Tea, like Green Tea and other non-herbal teas, is a tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant.  Black Tea is made from fully oxidized leaves, which produce a deep rich flavour.  It is fully fermented before drying. 

Flavoured Teas

Flavoured Black Teas are created by adding fruits, flowers and Natural Flavours to Black Tea.  The flavours complement the tea.  Black Tea is a tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant and is made from fully oxidized leaves, which produce a deep rich flavour.  It is fully fermented before drying.

Decaffeinated Teas (co2)

Decaffeinated Loose Teas are a natural process using carbon dioxide.  By using this method, the freshly plucked tea leaves are briefly soaked in water and gently flushed with carbon dioxide (co2).  The co2 binds to the caffeine molecules and extracts them from the tea, leaving behind all the natural proteins that give tea its flavour.    It also leaves many of the polyphenols and Antioxidants intact. 

Herb & Fruit Teas / Herb Teas

Herb & Fruit Teas are not really teas at all since they do not contain leaves from the tea bush (Camellia Sinensis).  These teas are made from seeds, roots, flowers and/or other parts of plants and herbs.  What’s great is that these teas are often blended to make unique tasting infusions more formally known as Tisanes.  Herb & Fruit Teas are caffeine free.

Green Teas

Green Tea is made from the leaves of the tea bush Camellia Sinensis but is not oxidized.  It is withered immediately, steamed, or heated to prevent oxidation and then rolled and dried.

Green Tea has Detox properties which are very beneficial.  It is best not to consume Green Tea on an empty stomach.  It is best to drink Green Tea after a meal or in-between meals.

Oolong Teas

Oolong Teas feature partly oxidized leaves and combines the taste and colour qualities of black and green tea.  The more oxidized the tea the closer it is to a black tea and less oxidized closer to green tea.  Extremely flavourful and highly aromatic.  Oolong teas fall between Green and Black teas on the oxidation scale. While this may seem an insignificant variable, it yields a dizzying array of tea styles and flavours. 

Rooibos Teas

Rooibos or “Red Bush” is a shrub native to South Africa.  Rooibos is naturally Caffeine Free.  It owes its unique red colour to the process of oxidation when it is spread out to dry after harvest.  Rooibos brews up a lovely amber colour with a distinctive aroma.  You can enjoy this tea on its own or blended. 

White Teas

White Tea is made from the leaf buds that are covered with whitish hairs.  The new buds from the Camellia Sinensis bush are plucked before they open, withered, and then dried slowly at low temperatures.  White Tea has a mild flavour and natural sweetness.  The name “white tea” derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea bush, which gives it a whitish appearance.
