Magic Hour Tea Review – Our Top Picks!
Magic Hour Tea is a California-based tea retailer that specializes in ceremonial teas. Read our Magic Hour Teas Review to get the scoop on their philosophy, best-selling teas, and our recommendations!
What is Magic Hour Tea?
Founded in Ojai, California, Magic Hour was founded by Zhena Muzyka with the mission to make at-home retreats accessible to people by bringing spirituality and tea together.
The name “Magic Hour” was inspired by California sunset and sunrise that Muzyka refers to as “an electric pink Magic Hour.” To this day, you can find their flagship Magic Hour tea studio in downtown Ojai.
Each Magic Hour tea is organic, sustainable, and fair trade.
Their tagline is “connecting the world through tea ceremony”. According to Muzyka, tea ceremonies are a great way to take time for yourself daily in as little as 10 minutes.
Magic Hour Teas are made with all-natural ingredients and no added sweeteners or preservatives. They come in a variety of flavors, each with its own unique set of health benefits too.
We intend to create sacred ceremonies of connection for you through Magic Hour—so that you may create the space to connect to your heart, your soul, your lover, family, friends, and to our oneness.Magic Hour
Does Magic Hour Tea Have Caffeine?
Magic Hour sells teas of all kinds, so that depends on the tea you get. Their black tea and green tea varieties do contain caffeine, but they also sell herbal teas and rooibos teas for people trying to avoid caffeine.
Magic Hour Review: Teas We Tried & What We Think
This month, we tried various Magic Hour teas. Here are 6 of our favorites!
Ruby Moon™ Hibiscus Elderberry Herbal Tea
Ingredients: Organic Hibiscus, Organic Elderberry, Organic Black Currant, Organic Rosehips, Organic Cranberry, South African Rooibos, and Natural Berry Flavor Extracts
Tart, fruity, and slightly floral, this red-hued herbal tea is an incredible blend for when you’re looking for something refreshing. I especially enjoyed the Ruby Moon tea blend served over ice during hot summer days. It’s caffeine-free, high in vitamin C, and smells amazing!
Renewal Peach-Goji-Rose Oolong Tea
Ingredients: Organic Ti Quan Yin oolong tea, Organic Goji Berries, Organic Roses, Natural Peach Flavor
As a huge fan of Oolong tea, I was really glad to find that this blend uses high-quality oolong (you can taste it!). The addition of goji berries, rose, and peach flavor made this blend more fun and refreshing than the traditional oolong. I enjoyed this tea both hot and cold, and recommend it with a bit of honey.
Lotus Mind™ The Crown Chakra Tea Blend
Ingredients: Silver Moon White Tea, Organic French Lavender, Organic Gotu Kola, Butterfly Peaflower, Jasmine Essence & Asian Pear Extract.
Out of all the teas I tried, this one felt the most “fancy.” First, the color of this tea took my breath away. The Butterfly Pea flower lends a gorgeous deep blue/violet hue to the tea and it was just beautiful! It also features the rare Silver Moon white tea. Flavor-wise, this tea blend has a slightly sweet, earthy flavor. It’s definitely the lightest tea of everything I tried.
Queen of The Tropics: Rose All Day Herbal Tea
Ingredients: Pineapple Fruit, Organic Garcinia Cambogia, Organic Zante Currant, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Apple, Rose petals with Natural Pear, Raspberry, and Grape Extracts.
The Queen of the Tropics Rosé blend was created as a nonalcoholic tea alternative to the Rosé wine. As an herbal tea, this blend is also caffeine-free. When brewing, the blend starts with light pink color, then builds to a darker, almost peachy pink color. It’s also rich in antioxidants and polyphenols and amazing served cold! For a fun twist, I recommend serving this tea blend over sparkling water.
Symbeeosis Wellness Tea (Green Tea)
Ingredients: Organic Echinacea Purpurea Herb, Organic Butterfly Pea Flower, Organic Jasmine Green Tea, Organic Chamomile, Organic Lavender, Organic Elderberry, Organic Hibiscus, Organic Cinnamon, Natural Strawberry Flavor
Containing organic Jasmine green tea, I most enjoyed the Symbeeosis blend served hot with honey in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up. The flavor profile feels like a mixture of everything: slightly sweet, slightly tart, and slightly earthy.
Magic Hour also sells its Symbeeosis blend as a gift set and sampler boxes.
Blueberry Lavender Moon™ Blue Butterfly Tea
Ingredients: Purple Tea, Organic Blueberry, Butterfly Pea Flower, Organic Licorice, Organic Lavender Flower With Natural Blueberry Flavor Extract
Another tea with a deep purple color, the Blueberry Lavender Moon tea blend is part of Magic Hour’s line of beauty teas. It features almost double the antioxidants of other types of tea and features a special purple tea that they source directly from Kenya. For reference, purple tea is similar to oolong tea, but it has actual purple leaves! The flavor is very delicate. I recommend this blend served cold over ice!
How Much Does Magic Hour Cost?
Magic Hour sells its teas in a variety of packaging and sizes. As such, the overall cost varies. However, Magic Hour teas generally cost less than $1 per serving, or as low as $0.39 per serving if you purchase the largest pouch size.
- Sampler Pouch: $11 for 10-15 cups
- Glass Traveler Jar: $17 for 10-15 cups
- Luxe Pouch: $33 for 60-75 cups
- Glass Apothecary Jar: $55 for 60-75 cups
- Bulk Pouch: $77 for 200+ cups
Magic Hour also has a subscription service where you can save 5% off each order!
But before subscribing to a bunch of teas, I recommend first purchasing the sampler pouches of the teas you are interested in. Once you’ve tried them and know what you like most, you can set up a subscription for those teas 🙂

I can’t figure how to open the jar
Hi Patricia! The jar is a little tight, but once you cut the paper holding the lid and the jar together, just wiggle out the lid – it will come out!
