The cafe and retail store offers more than 200 different types of tea. Black tea, white tea, green tea, rooibos – it's all here. One of the most popular teas is Divine Temptation, a richly-flavoured, aromatic black tea with chunks of hazelnut and nougat in it. The store also offers a number of healthy teas. Yerba mate, which comes from South America, is rich in vitamins and minerals and is known for its pick-me-up qualities.
