Where does the name “QUARTERPAST” come from?
QUARTERPAST was designed on the adage “¼ past the hour is time to take a break, sit down and relax” which is why our logo looks like a CUP being viewed from above, where the cup arm is pointing to the number “3” on the clock, representing ¼ of an hour.
Can I recycle my bottles?
At QUARTERPAST we are fully committed to the environment and are always looking for better ways to make a difference.
Our bottles and caps are 100% recyclable. All you need to do is remove the labels and rinse the bottles.

How to use QUARTERPAST?
All of our products are designed to be diluted with a 9:1 ratio. This means: fill 10% of your cup/mug/glass with QUARTERPAST, top the remaining 90% with liquid (water, milk, coffee), stir to combine and enjoy!
Our products are made using natural cane sugar, which is the best form of natural preservative and a better way to taste food when compared to artificial sweeteners. Because our products are super concentrated, you only need a small amount diluted into liquid (9:1 ratio) which means less sugar per serve.
Why do you use preservatives in your products?
At QUARTERPAST, we are all about flavour, taste, and quality. Our products are made by cold brewing simple, honest ingredients to deliver true flavour. We use minimal preservative to make sure our products are shelf stable so you can experience delicious flavours and high quality every time.
Why do I see colour variations on your tea infusions?
Our tea infusions are made using real fruit sourced all year round which may cause some variation in colour due to seasonality.

Order has FAILED but bank shows "payment taken"
When your order has failed it will NOT take money out of your account and instead it will block the payment. This normally happens because our payment system has found something wrong with your card or bank.
When this happens, you may see a line on your bank statement that says “PENDING PAYMENT FROM QUARTERPAST.” This means your bank is yet to understand that our system has blocked your payment.
This will clear from your bank statement within 1-2 business days, please allow this time for it to clear. Please rest assure no money will be taken from your account, as our system has blocked your payment from going through.
Please try making the purchase using a different card.
If for some other reason this has not cleared, please contact us and we will work with you to resolve this.
Is there any sugar-free option?
Not at this stage, but we never say “never.”
Do you offer caffeine-free options?
Yes, we do indeed.
All of our tea infusions, hot chocolates, mixers, milkshakes and chai are naturally free from caffeine.
In addition, we also have a delicious decaf iced coffee concentrate which is identical in flavour to our caffeinated version! It’s delicious and we worked tirelessly to get it perfect! Make sure you check it out 🙂
