What is organic natural flavoring?

Organic natural flavoring is derived from all organic and natural sources, such as essential oils, essences, or extracts. The flavoring enhances the tea components and rounds out the flavors. However, a little goes a very long way and the flavoring accounts for less than 1% of our tea blend composition.

Please note: Our Beautiful Wondermint Tea Blend does not contain any natural flavoring.  

How long does our tea remain fresh?

To keep your teas fresh, always store them in a cool, dry, dark place and keep them well sealed. For maximum freshness consume within 6 months of purchase or up to 12 months, if transferred into an airtight tea tin.

Preparation Notes:

Preparation instructions are based on 8 ounces of water for medium strength and flavor. If milder or stronger tea is desired, please customize to your liking by reducing or increasing the amount of tea and the amount of steeping time. However, avoid over-steeping your tea to avoid a bitter taste.

All tea orders include a complimentary brewing card with instructions on preparing a great cup of tea.
