Indulge in the nostalgia of a timeless classic with Chanui's Special Reserve – the very tea that our founder, Doug, craved and embarked on a quest to find all those years ago. This brew captures the essence of the past, reminiscent of the tea affectionately known as gumboot tea in New Zealand after the footwear of the workman who enjoy it.

To those in the UK, builders' tea is your closest translation. Its robust, fortifying flavour will take you back to memories of your most deserved cups of tea after a hard morning’s graft.

To savour the full character of this strong black tea, use one large teaspoon per cup and always pour in fresh boiling water to extract the full essence and flavour. Allow it to infuse for 2-3 minutes then strain, pour and enjoy the intensity of flavour.

Black tea has many known health benefits including digestive and cardiovascular health. For more on this, read our blog post: The health benefits of tea according to Chanui.

Discover the legacy of New Zealand’s favourite tea.

Also available as teabags.
