Braai Tea: Think outside of the cup

Please say hello to our new Braai tea!

During heritage month we highlight the beauty of South Africa’s indigenous and locally produced teas. On top of that, we have been brewing on a new blend specifically for our local customers. We wanted to create a tea that is not your usual cup of tea, but is familiar to all. After many flavour combinations, tea tastings and refining the flavour we have a magnificent result. In light of heritage month we are happy to share our new blend; Braai tea. A must have for every tea lover, braai fanatic and veggie or meat-turning chef! 


The combination of Rooibos, Black Tea and Chai spices makes our Braai tea a unique blend that is a round, rich and strong tea and a powerful and tasty marinade! 


The teas that make up this amazing Braai tea blend is known to boost well-being:


  • Great for your digestive system
  • Supports Heart Health
  • Improves “Bad” LDL Cholesterol
  • Improves blood pressure and circulation
  • May Lower Blood Sugar Levels
  • Has Antioxidant Properties


Besides all the health benefits I would encourage you to think outside of the cup since our Braai tea is not only to be enjoyed as a tea but it serves as a marinade too! 

In general, teas can do wonderful things when used for cooking and it brings out new flavours. 

This tea blend is specifically designed for braaing and can be used as a marinade for both meat and veggie lovers. Check out our recipe below. 


From Farm to Braai


  • 2 teaspoons Braai tea
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Add chili (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 fillets or 1-2 aubergines

Use 1-2 teaspoon per cup and allow to steep the Braai tea for 2-5 minutes. 

Use the tea brew and mix it with olive oil, salt and garlic.
You can add chili to your liking (l like to add 1 freshly chopped chili).
Lay your meat or veggies in a casserole and poor the marinade over it.
Let it soak for 60 minutes before putting it on the braai.


Use your braai skills, our Braai tea and voilà 🙂
