How its made
Ethically sourced fresh fruits and roots are chopped and packaged in a single serving ready for infusing with hot or cold water using our innovative filter or tea infuser.
Every cup you drink is packed full of zingy flavours and natural goodness.
LAUNCHING EARLY 2020
Since we started, we’ve unleashed over 100,000 cups to you nice folk with an amazing response to our infusions which actually taste as good as they smell.
We’ve also taken time to listen you to find out how we can keep innovating and making our product better. Top of the list has been making TEA REX more environmentally friendly. It’s taken a year behind the scenes to develop, and from early 2020 we will be launching a widely recyclable sachet, removing our disposable filters and introducing a reusable filter and on the go cup.
I have always been vocal about how disappointing fruit teas taste. I had tried fresh infusions on my travels, from a soul-warming honey, lemon and ginger served in the cafes of Calcutta to a mighty mint tea in markets of Morocco. But, I saw these as exotic bews which always made you feel amazing, but were only to be savoured when abroad. However, the penny dropped, why my wife asked if we could recreate these fresh brews in our kitchen because we craved the amazing flavors and natural goodness. There was no alternative to the dusty, dried tea bag which is bland, beige and, quite frankly, boring. For me fresh fruits and roots are full of amazing flavours, hyper healthy nutrients and kick ass colours… so doesn’t all this goodness make it into the cup?
Our mission is to get the best out of what nature has to offer. We go back to basics, back to the roots of what works well, to make a infusions which are the King of Taste.

It’s what’s inside that counts. Undress to reveal the amazing orange colour of curcumin, Turmeric’s active ingredient containing many anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Mother Nature’s absolute golden boy, this knobbly little root has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Indian medicine for centuries. With the secret well and truly out, it's now enjoying well-deserved notoriety. Only accept the real, raw version and not dried imitations. It’s not spicy but Turmeric is oh so hot right now!
Lemons really are legends of the fruit world – no need for swanky artificially caffeinated sports drinks, they are packed full of vitamin C and natural electrolytes which help rehydration and kick start your metabolism. Whatever has happened the day before, the smell of fresh lemon is guaranteed to pep up your mood ready for the day ahead
Lemongrass is native to India and tropical regions of Asia, known for its distinct lemon flavour and citrusy aroma. Astonishingly for a stringy grass it is loaded with vitamins A and C, folate, folic acid, magnesium, zinc, copper, iron, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and manganese. It has generally awesome antibacterial and antifungal properties that help your body cope with coughs, fever and other man-flu like symptoms. Ohh lovely lemongrass.
Ginger really is the head honcho in Ayuverdic medicine. An ancient woody spice, its active compounds gingerol and zingibain are responsible for that fierce flavour, and are natural ways to relieve nausea and inflammation. Ginger has an impressive kick so you don’t need much to reap the benefits. Like most things - it is best enjoyed fresh and raw.
