What's Brewing at Stir:

Shop at Stir Tea
We hold good stock of most blends with more stock on the way. Customers are purchasing larger quantities than normal as they provision themselves for the holiday period and to manage their freight costs. We encourage you to order early to avoid missing out and to avoid the anticipated freight delays.
The 2022 shipment of dragonwell green tea which has just arrived is pictured, we  hope you enjoy the depth of flavour as much as we do.

Tea Trends & Stir Thoughts:

Tea replacing alcohol for cost conscious consumers

Tea replacing alcohol for cost conscious consumers

Research firm Mintel conducted a survey showing almost half of British tea lovers say they now sometimes drink tea as an alternative to alcohol.

The research reveals that a cup of "posh" tea (at Stir we just call that loose leaf) is proving to be a viable luxury, as two-thirds who swap alcohol see high-quality teas are an affordable treat.

And then the other universal benefits:

The research went on to say: “Tea remains a comforting constant for consumers, also offering a little emotional pick-me-up.

Tea Tip:

As you head outdoors this summer remember that dried tea leaves make a great deodoriser. They readily absorb moisture and smells in the air. This makes them a really great way to freshen any lingering odours in your fridge, chilly bin, thermos flask or keep cup.
To freshen your flask/cup simply place the dried tea leaves inside (we use a paper towel to hold the leaves) with the lid gently sitting on top. Leave for a few hours (overnight is good) and then remove.


The Stir Team are taking an extended tea break and will be closed from 5.00pm Thursday 22nd December and reopening on Monday 16th January 2023.

You can still order online during this time and we will dispatch your order as soon as possible after our return.

Parting Thoughts from Michelle:

Michelle in Queenstown NZ

My parting thought is very simple given the challenges of this year for everyone. I hope you get to relax over the holiday period and raise a cup of tea as a toast to good health and happiness.

Until next time, take good care of yourself and those around you. We look forward to sharing lots more tea moments with you in 2023.

Warm regards, Michelle
