Crofter Breakfast Tea

A delicious breakfast tea that works anytime of day! Crofter is a robust tea – like the inspiration behind it. Highly rated, this firm favourite is here to stay. Meet the wee grey fergie tractor.

Tilley (Mint and Nettle Herbal Infusion)

Tilley is a refreshing blend of spearmint, peppermint and nettle. It’s the ideal cuppa after a meal or before bed. We are reliably informed that the bags are so well filled you can get two cups out of one…

Machair (Herbal Infusion)

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.

Ferry Berry Tea (Flavoured Blend)

Ferry Berry tea is a herbal infusion of mulled spiced berries. Now available year round, it is warming and comforting. If you know a wild swimmer – this would make a great gift! Warm up from the inside out…

Gneiss (Earl Grey)

Gneiss earl grey  tea is delicious blend, sprinkled with cornflowers and topped with lighter notes. A perfect cuppa at any time of day.

Tiree Taster Box Blends

Crofter

Crofter Breakfast Tea was inspired by a little grey fergie. The little grey fergie has lived on the Tiree Tea croft since she was born in 1947. She is still a working tractor.

Like the fergie, Crofter Breakfast Tea is a versatile blend equally suited to breakfast, a flask on the go or, (in true Tiree style) accompanied by a couple of biscuits after an already large meal. Leaving it in a teapot on the stove to stew for a couple of hours is traditional, but entirely optional.

Hints of: baler-twine and marauding livestock

Net weight: 30g (10 teabags )

Ingredients: Indian Assam Black Tea, Kenyan Black Tea, Sri Lankan Black Tea.

Tilley

Tilley Mint and Nettle Herbal Infusion draws it’s inspiration from a variety of souces! Tilley lamps once powered island homes. Now Tilley the Turbine powers community projects.

A refreshing blend of peppermint, spearmint and nettle, Tilley Mint and Nettle Herbal Infusion is inspired by Tiree’s fresh breeze, and the scent of wild mint as a crofter trails through a bog on the heels of a cow. The less said about nettles, the better.

Hints of: birds flying backwards and washing stuck on a fence.

Net weight: 20g (10 teabags)

Ingredients: Mint (70%) (Peppermint, Spearmint), Nettle (30%)

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.

Hints of: pretty petals and mis-pronunciation

Net weight 15g (10 teabags)

Ingredients Green Rooibos (30%), Lemon Verbena (25%), Nettle (25%), Lemon Thyme (8%), Mallow Flowers (4%), Red Cornflowers (4%), Sunflower Petals (4%).

Gneiss

Gneiss is the bedrock of the Hebrides and Tiree gneiss was the intended building material for the Skerryvore lighthouse, but after the first three foundational courses the builders opted for softer Mull granite for the rest of the tower!

Like its namesake, Gneiss Earl Grey is a solid base for a great cuppa, topped with lighter notes.

Hints of: Dance tunes and bright lights.

Net weight 25g (10 teabags)

Ingredients: Sri Lankan Black Tea (98%), Blue Cornflowers, Natural Bergamot Flavouring, Natural Flavouring

Ferry Berry

Ferries have long been a comforting sight for islanders, providing a lifeline service all year round. Ferry Berry Herbal Infusion is bold and striking, welcoming you aboard with a heady mix of spices to warm the toes like an early morning announcement that the cafeteria is open.

Hints of: Cathy Bhàn and chilli mornings on the pier.

Net weight 25g

Ingredients: Cinnamon, Apple Pieces, Hibiscus, Elderberries (14%), Ginger, Allspice Berry (5%), Cloves, Red Peppercorns, Lemon Verbena, Rosehip, Chilli, Blackberry Leaves, Orange Peel, Freeze-dried Blackberry, Raspberry Pieces, Strawberry Pieces, Natural Flavouring.

20 teabags | brew for 3 mins in 100 degree water

    Having tried, and loved, all the teas, I ordered some sample boxes for my alumnae society. They will make ideal gifts by post for our older members as they reach their 80th or 90th birthdays – and last a lot longer than flowers! My favourite sleep inducing night time tipple is definitely Tilley!
