An Antarctic Tea Tasting

Silk Road Tea

Take a sip back in time! Jaymie our Merchandise Coordinator and Michael our IT Specialist taste Silk Road Tea’s limited edition Antarctic Expedition Tea.  In addition to the delightful flavour, Michael, our Quark IT Specialist,  remarks the tea’s aroma ” is divine.”  The tea is a re-creation of the tea enjoyed by the British Antarctic Expedition in the quest to be the first to reach the South Pole in 1911-1912.  Captain Scott requested a strong black tea be created, that would lift the spirits of his team during the cold and long journey through the Antarctic.  Enjoy as both a breakfast tea, or an all day pick-me-up!


The tea will be available in the Quark Expedition ship polar boutiques this Antarctic season.


Follow the leader!
