Machair (Herbal Infusion)

(109 customer reviews)


Machair is a sweet and fragrant herbal infusion. It is inspired by the expanses of machair in the Scottish islands – fertile, flower filled fields which stretch down to the shore.



Machair Herbal Infusion is inspired by the fertile flowery ground in the Scottish islands, called machair.

Machair in Tiree supports the Great Yellow Bumblebee – one of the rarest in Britain. It loves the fertile ground, which stretches down to the shore, carpeted in sweet wildflowers throughout the Summer. Find out more about the machair here.

Like the machair and the flowers the bees enjoy, Machair Herbal Infusion is sweet and fragrant with subtle citrus notes.

    A lovely, tasty blend of herbs and flowers. Pack design is appealing too. I’ll be back for more.

    I don’t drink ordinary tea and drink fruit tea or mint tea instead. In this strange situation we find ourselves I searched online to find an alternative – and found Tiree Tea’s herbal infusion, The Machair.
    It was delivered quickly to my home and in a robust packet which fitted through our letterbox.

    The tea is Amazing! If you’ve ever been lucky enough to visit the Scottish islands this herbal infusion will take you right back there. It’s not sweet like fruit teas but it’s a fusion of wild flowers and herbs that tingle my tastebuds. I can drink it and imagine myself walking along the edge of the machair and breathing in those wonderful scents.

    Lovely refreshing taste

    Delicious any time of day or night. I drink a lot of herb teas and Machair is now the one I reach for first.
    Try serving chilled with ice if the sun is shining.
    Great package design too.

    Thoroughly enjoyed, well packaged and arrived quickly. The free samples of the varieties not ordered were greatly appreciated. Great service – keep up the good work!

    Very pleasant. My brother in law thought it was wonderful so I have sent some to him

  23. Andy Wilson (verified owner)

  24. Rob Wherrett (verified owner)

    Not hugely fragrant but pleasant and refreshing.

  25. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Pretty as well as delicious. One bag easily does two mugs as it is quite strong. The Roobos content gives me a headache but that’s not your fault, I should have checked first!

  26. Sandra Day (verified owner)

    I’ve never been to the Machair, but just opening the pack of these teabags gave such a gorgeous scent of new mown flower meadows that I felt I was right there! They are a lovely mix of flower and herb flavours and I love them. So good to see no plastic in the bags themselves and my order arrived earlier than expected.

  27. Sandra Schlemper (verified owner)

    Nice and mild. Evening tea.

  28. Margaret Y. (verified owner)

    Delicious tea. Refreshing and has a lovely aroma.

  33. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This tea is delicious, original, aromatic, refreshing. The flavour reminds me of the scent of the machair flowers at the end of the summer. Excellent communication and speedy service. Will be giving some to all my friends.

  34. Wendy Dick (verified owner)

    I bought this one for me and I really like the flowery smell and taste of it.

  35. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Lovely taste and a very different type of herbal tea to most others. Will definitely be trying your other infusions in the near future!

  36. Maggie Hunt (verified owner)

    Just love this tea – as does a close friend*; it’s refreshing and gentle with a lot of depth. How do you do that?Two of the packs are for her* birthday in 3 weeks. I know she’ll be pleased

    This tea was recommended by a friend and I have to say I absolutely love it. Some teas I have tried in the past have tasted ‘chemically’ and ‘synthetic’, but you can taste the herbs in this infusion, and it doesn’t leave a ‘taste’ in your mouth. Will definitely be buying more.

  48. Polly (verified owner)

    Great service and lovely tea – one bag goes a long way! Love it

  51. Laura (verified owner)

    What a gorgeous, absolutely divine blend. I can almost hear the bees buzzing about the Scottish heather as I drink this tea! I drink a lot of herbal teas because I can’t have the caffeine and this is now one of my favourites.

  52. Amy (verified owner)

    A delicious caffeine free tea that I’ve really enjoyed at bedtime. It also looks beautiful in the bag with its colourful petals. I got some at Christmas with a mug and coaster to match!

  53. Aileen Macdonald (verified owner)

    Interesting combination of flavours. Each sip seems to be different with flavours peaking.

  60. Tania Cheston (verified owner)

    Lovely tea, and very impressed by the packaging.

  61. Angela Kelman (verified owner)

    Mild and mellow – another favourite!

  62. Jack Honey (verified owner)

    The Machair Infusion Tea is an exciting but yet delicate bouquet of gentle ideas that present both in flavour and aroma. Normally I drink Rooibos Tea from South Africa, so I was interested to sample the “Green Rooibos” listed as 30% of the blend. I am delighted with the result of that tasting exploration.
    I love the presentation, humorous light hearted descriptions and attractive incorporation of Tiree as the “source” of this package of joy.
    I’ll be back for more and at the first opportunity I plan to visit your special island and pickup a pack in person.
    Thanks also to my friend Marion McIntosh who, knowing my love of all things Rooibos and tasty, did really go the extra mile to introduce me to your tapestry of taste extravaganza.

  63. Caroline Hornberger (verified owner)

    A unique and delicious blend for drinkers of herb tea. And it reminds me of the machair in Tiree when I drink it. Great label design. Greenest possible packaging and teabags.

  83. Lucy Mitchell (verified owner)

  87. Alastair (verified owner)

    I had Machair at a cafe in Argyll over the summmer. It’s a winner. Literally the best tisane i have had and delicious. Using it as my mid afternoon pick me up beverage.

  88. Helene C. (verified owner)

  89. Owen Dixon (verified owner)

    It’s a lovely infusion, packed well, and got to me in no time. Very happy!

  90. Christopher (verified owner)

    Really delicious tea.

  91. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Tea caddy and tea was a gift for a friend who had tried one of my Machair tea bags and loved it. She couldn’t remember its name, so called it “the delicious lavender tea”, because of all the flowers she could see, even though it doesn’t actually have lavender in it! The tin is really stylish.

  92. Sarah B. (verified owner)

  93. Sandra Day (verified owner)

    Like walking through fields of wild flowers.

  94. Hilary B. (verified owner)

    This Machair tea is really special. It’s hard to find words that describe the unique taste. Apart from tasting incredible, Tiree teas are beautifully packaged and orders arrive really quickly.

    I love this tea, and I’m a devout coffee drinker!
    It would be nice to see the ingredients feature more species native to the machair, provided you are permitted to collect them.
