Specialist tea company, Bohea Teas, was founded by husband and wife team Chris and Sophie Parker-Loftus. Combining our joint passion for tea with Sophie’s professional background in horticulture, we want to help people enjoy the amazing breadth of tastes and flavours that the world of loose leaf tea offers. We’re based in Manchester UK and regularly sell our teas at artisan markets in and around the city. It was the fantastic responses from our lovely customers that encouraged us to take this online and to start sharing our fine selection of teas from around the world, with more tea lovers, just like us.
Lemongrass and ginger:
Zesty and refreshing. Our Sri Lankan lemongrass and ginger herbal tea makes a delicious caffeine free drink to be enjoyed at any time of day. It also makes a lovely summer cooler, served over ice with a touch of agave syrup for added sweetness. Measure 1 heaped tsp per cup (250ml) and brew in freshly boiled water for 3 minutes or to taste.
Our top quality Chai is made from a rich and malty tippy Assam tea mixed with spices. It’s great drunk on it’s own or made in the traditional fashion by boiling it in the pan with milk, water and sugar for several minutes. The boiled milk adds a delicious richness to the drink which is really worth the effort. We put lots of spices in our Chai, so give the bag a gentle shake each time before you brew.
Made from the fermented and dried leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant, Rooibos or Redbush as it is commonly known is a caffeine free drink with a wonderful nutty taste and natural honey sweetness.
Earl Grey with cornflowers:
Perfectly blended rich black tea scented with the finest Italian bergamot oil, and sprinkled with cornflowers. Serve with a slice of lemon, a dash of milk, or just on its own (which is how I like it best). It also makes a fantastic cold brew. Just pop 8g per litre in cold water at bedtime. Strain it when you get up, and off you go.
