The dark oolong base is a perfect compliment to the orange and citrus essences added to this smokey, high-grade oolong tea. An earthy but bright infusion with a complex, deep and smokey flavor profile. This is a perfect tea to have by the fire on a cold day, with added whiskey or rum, or cold as an iced tea with added sweetener. You will be surprised by complexity of the flavour and aroma of this blend. One of our classic, favourite blends.

Well done! This blend has a great balance, the citrus and the sweetness are carefully balanced by the strong, dark oolong base. I infused this tea 3 times and the citrus flavour actually came through on each infusion! Very rare to have that happen with flavoured teas. The flavour is definitely a punch style, the taste is fruity and citrusy, but I taste more than just citrus fruits (although I can’t place what the other fruits would be). All in all great tea blend, I will definitely buy more.

5 Healthy Iced Tea Recipes to Wow your Summer Guests - by Safiya Motala
Summer is around the corner, and that means BBQ’s, patios, and warm weather. It also means iced tea!
We really have fun with iced tea at Shanti Tea. Combining different teas, adding fruits, potentially adding booze… It’s easy to make great iced tea, and it’s generally healthier to drink iced tea than any other cold beverage (besides water). Many of our teas are sweet without sugars, so you can enjoy a sweet iced tea if you wish, with zero calories or sugar.
All of these recipes call for sparkling water, you can choose to omit that and just use cold, filtered water instead. Sparkling water is just there for the bubbles.
These are our favourite 5 recipes using healthy, organic ingredients from Shanti Tea.
Let’s start with an easy one. Banana Colada is delicious as is, it’s herbal (caffeine-free) and has all the refreshing flavours of the tropics. We made this as a one-time seasonal blend last year, but our customers loved it SO much we brought it back again for another year.

History of the Hot Toddy
- Toddies came from India, the fermented sap of the toddy plant, named tari in Hindi. The British brought back a version of this brew, and originally it was served cold. Eventually, this brew was served hot as a comforting beverage with the same mix of spirits and spices.
- The hot toddy was based on a Scottish cold remedy of whisky, hot water, and spices such as nutmeg or clove. Suggestions that the name comes Tod’s Well, a source of spring water outside of Edinburgh.
- In Dublin, Ireland, Dr. Robert Bently Todd would recommend a brew of hot whisky, lemon and cinnamon.
These are just a few theories about the origins of the hot toddy. One other story is that the Hot Toddy was a drink for Scottish women who didn’t enjoy the taste of Scotch. In American history, the legend goes that colonists used toddies as a liquid courage during the...
