Machair (Herbal Infusion)

(32 customer reviews)


A sweet and fragrant herbal infusion.


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.

    Loved it. A deliciously different taste that evokes holidays. I was looking for something with lots of notes and was not disappointed. I have ordered some 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.

    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.

    Not hugely fragrant but pleasant and refreshing.

    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!

    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.
