  • Where does A Tea Novel source its tea from?
    Our teas are sourced from various origins, blended in Germany and packed in Singapore to ensure only the freshest quality are delivered. If you have a query about a specific tea or tisane and its origin, please feel free to get in touch with our customer service team.
  • Does our teas contain any allergens?
    Some of our teas contain allergens, so it is always best to check the ingredients list at the back of the tea box, foil, tin, or on the product description page on our website.
  • What are the ingredients listed flavourings?
    Where listed, the flavour in all our teas are food graded and made of all-natural molecules that are found in nature, made in an artificial process. We use a higher concentration of these compounds than what is found in nature to give an intense flavour and to maintain seasonal consistencies amongst the teas. If a flavour contains or is made up of any allergen or of any other ingredients (like sugar for example) this will clearly be displayed in the ingredient listing.
  • Does tea expire and is it safe to drink tea after it’s expiry date?
    Tea is classified as a ‘low-risk item’ (like honey or bottled water) so as a general rule of thumb, it doesn’t expire. To ensure that our teas are enjoyed at their optimum taste and freshness we do have a best before as a general guide. Our teas are best served before 18 months for the best flavour. This is located on the bottom of the box or tin, or on the back of our foils. Our teas are best sipped before their best before date!
  • How should you store our tea?
    Whenever possible, store in an air-tight container, away from direct sunlight, moisture and odours. Exposure to these conditions will cause the tea to deteriorate and lose its flavour. You may also store them in the fridge to maintain freshness for as long as possible. However, do note that opening a bag straight from the fridge will result in condensation on the inside of the pack, which, when closed, can then affect the quality of the tea inside.
