• Australian grown black tea is blended with wild-harvested native Mint to create this wonderful minty tea.  Full of flavour, it can strong for a robust tea when you feel like something with a bit of a punch, otherwise a softer version and you still have the flavour of the black tea and wild mint coming thru, just depends on what you're after at the time!
  • THE PERFECT AFTERNOON TEA

    The crushed leaves of this free-spirited rambling Wild Mint bush combine with the calming effect of gentle Lavender to enhance the spirit and soothe the mind.

    It is now a proven fact that Lavender has a soothing, calming effect...we've all, most likely, enjoyed the benefits of aroma therapy with lavender, Lavender candles, oils, soaps and so the list goes on.  I'ts been a really popular aroma for centuries.  I've seen lavender Panna Cotta, lavender put into perfumes and bath oils, the list is endless. I always marvel at why some aromas and flavours just seem timeless and have a universal appeal. Lavender has definitely has made it's mark, it came into it's own in the Victoriana era where giving flowers and posies was fashionable, ahhhh great to see the romance of it all....some things never change and hope they never do!

    Now we know that lavender is not only useful for its beautiful aroma but also makes a great tea.

    Note here that not all lavenders can be consumed, the one that OutbackChef uses is a french lavender that is grown for culinary use.  Combining with mint, I've added some calendula and Australian grown green tea, it's a great brew, a truly Australian blend with these unique flavours, try yourself or makes a great gift.
  • There are many species of native mint in the Australian natives, they are all wild-harvested.  Some, like River Mint have  a strong spearmint taste and aroma, whereas the Round-leaf or Bush Mint is more like your traditional mint with a slight aromatic edge.  The early settlers used Australian native mints to make mint sauce for their Sunday roast lamb.  This native bushfood herb is just as versitile as the traditional mints and can be replaced by them, use a little until you get used to the strong minty flavour.  OutbackChef's Wild Mint & Lavender Tea is a perfect way to enjoy a quiet cuppa in the afternoon, made with Australian grown green tea and beautifully packaged this tea makes a wonderful gift for someone special.
