A good time to make new friends
















An exciting new, must-stop shop along the N7. One visit and you will keep you coming back for more. It not only offers a hub of honest food, exciting pairing experiences, quality artisan products, an excellent wine selection, but our range of Carmién teas too. The original ‘toll house’ that was built in 1864 as a watering hole for horses and donkeys transporting goods to Cape Town harbour, is now a family stop for much more than just water!




De Tol Deli is located on a historical piece of land along the N7 on the Piekenierskloof Pass


The historic wine cellar at De Tol dates back to 1849 and produced wines for travellers en route to take back home, south to the Cape Colony or north to ‘Duitswes’ (Namibia) as a reminder of their journeys.


Today the familiar white building has been gently renovated (as much as regulations allow) and is also home to Piekenierskloof wines‘ exciting new tasting room and our very own Carmien Gin.


The traditional ‘bakoond’ (outside wood oven) still turns out the most delicious ‘roosterkoek’, and if that is not enough to lure you, you can enjoy a wine tasting served with a beautifully paired food platter and first hand information on each wine.



Pairing experiences at De Tol Deli are not only for adults. The latest range of healthy nibbles paired with rooibos ice teas were tested on a group of children and met with great success (not to mention the adults who also dived into the eats!). It’s truly a place not to be missed. See you there soon!

Tea with a difference

Carmién tea has gone cold. Ice cold in fact. Why?

Enter CARMIÉN ICE TEA! With a difference…A unique ALL NATURAL ice tea.

No sugar. No calories. No caffeine. 100% natural ingredients. No preservatives. Refreshing, hydrating, pure deliciousness. Hot brewed for extra taste and flavor.

Now in two Great Flavours:

  • Carmién Green Rooibos with Camomile,Ginger & Chilli
  • Carmién Green Rooibos with Lemongrass, Ginger & Mint

Ideal for the whole family, kids and babies from 6 months old. The fit and the unfit. The sweet tooth and the health conscious.

Apart from being all natural, what’s so special about CARMIÉN ICE TEA? No sugar.

Added sugar is the enemy of the modern diet.

We can’t ignore it. Not for ourselves nor for the sake of our children. The latest research shows that sugar is highly addictive, even more addictive than cocaine. It promotes obesity, causes insulin resistance which leads to diabetes, contributes to cancer and raises cholesterol which leads to heart disease. There’s more, but, enough said.

CARMIÉN ICE TEA is the perfect drink when you’re tempted to reach for something sugary, or when you’ve done your daily exercise. When you’re out strolling with baby. Or a diabetic. Oh ok, when you’re slouching in front of the television too!

Healthy too! Soothing on the nervous system. A great digestive aid which helps with weight loss, significantly lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes, fights cancer and heart disease. Alleviates allergies. Alleviates colic & cramps in babies. Excellent for hyper-active children. And more.

Be the difference. Get the difference.

Live life the way it’s meant to be lived.

Long, happy, healthy.

Carmién Recycle Project Continues

From natural waste to recycled gift cards. From gift box to recipe booklet. We waste nothing.

You may have purchased one of our gift boxes and not given a thought to what happens to the piece that gets cut out to give you that beautiful display window. Well, we have, and the end result is a lovely little recipe booklet that we will spoil our Carmién Tea Club members with! Keep a lookout next time you have a birthday!

Our grateful appreciation goes to Colourtone Aries for once again stepping up to the printing plate in support of our Recycle mission.
