Van Diemen Chai mix – Tasmanian black tea from the Huon valley with native cracked pepperberry, ginger, star anise, cinnamon verum, cardamom and allspice.


Van Diemen’s Land was notorious for unrelenting hard labour, with very little chance of escape. Van Diemen Chai is just what you need after your own bout of hard (or not so hard!) labour with every chance to escape the day’s travails over a refreshing cuppa!

Tasmanian black tea, grown in the Huon region of southern Tasmania and marketed as Huon Black, is a mild tea with a roasted aroma, which does not need milk so as not to to detract from the flavour.

Tasmanian Pepperberry

Compared to everyday pepper, Tasmanian Pepperberry has more of a herbal dimension, and packs more of a spicier, sharper, hotter punch.

Simply by drinking a refreshing cup of Van Diemen Chai is a great way to obtain rich, superior antioxidants. Not only has Pepperberry served Indigenous Australians as a flavouring agent for food over generations, but by and large, as a traditional medicine. Due to its high antioxidants, Pepperberry has been documented as a treatment for a variety of illnesses including stomach ache and colic.

With potent antioxidants, four times more powerful than the renowned blueberry, Pepperberry’s health benefits are just as useful today as they have been over centuries.

Allspice can help you get a good night’s sleep but can also reduce digestive issues such as nausea. It takes its name from its aroma, which smells like a combination of spices, especially cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg.

Ginger has been used for centuries as a cure for nausea and vomiting caused by morning sickness and motion sickness. It also contains compounds that fight to eliminate free radicals and toxins which cause you to get sick in the first place. Ginger also works to prevent the immune system response that causes wheezing, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes in allergic reactions and also has anti-inflammatory properties that may help to ease muscle pain and joint pain

Cinnamon all of the spice’s intoxicating flavour and scent without overpowering your drink. Cinnamon has been used medicinally in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat a variety of ailments.

Cardamom is one of the most expensive spices in the world. With citrus, mint, spicy and herbal notes all at once, the benefits it provides with its impressive range of active compounds and nutrients, make it well worth the price!

Star Anise tea after meals helps treat digestive ailments such as bloating, gas, indigestion and constipation
