Situated on the busy Gallery Walk on Mt Tamborine, Tamborine Tea is home to a fantastic selection of loose leaf tea.



The range includes many varieties of green and white tea and herbal blends, some imported and some locally grown. They even cater to coffee lovers with 19 different kinds of coffee. They also stock tea infusers and a range of beautiful china teapots which I was unable to get a picture of due to the difficulty of keeping two curious small children away from them.

Personally I prefer flavoured black teas, and I was not disappointed with the range of black teas with added fruit, spices, flower petals etc. I can thoroughly recommend the blueberry tea, which is unusual and smells and tastes strongly of the berries.

The tea comes in resealable bags but is best stored in a tin.


Raspberry and Lime is also a lovely fruity blend which would be for drinking iced in the Summer. It smells heavenly, and has a refreshing lime after-taste.

There are samples of the teas in little saucers for customers to smell. Beware, the wonderful scents make it nearly impossible to walk out of the shop without buying something. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and can give recommendations and advice on the correct way to brew the different types of tea.

If you're visiting Mt Tamborine, I definitely recommend a stop in at Tamborine Tea. If it's too far for you to travel you can always check out their website and shop online.

Great article, I was not sure if I was going to make the trip up to Mount Tamborine to visit the shop, but after reading this article I changed my mind and I have now been there, and like you said it is hard to walk out without buying a bag of tea. I tried the Rooibos Earl Grey and it is extremely flavorful. I also highly recommend this shop
