Limóncello Tea from The NecessiTeas

Lavender Dream is a fruit and herbal blend, combining the sweet fruitiness of peach with the light floral of lavender.

Tropical Green Tea from Octavia Tea

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Tea Description: This tea is so much more than what “tropical” might conjure in your mind. There’s sweet tropical flavours for sure, but there’s also an amazing floral character that envelopes the entire tea, a fun citrus finish that blends well with the vegetal notes of the green tea.
