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.

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.
