Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products organic?
We craft each of our delicious teas with certified organic ingredients. However, our company is still in process of receiving our own certified organic stamp of approval.
Is your company environmentally friendly?
Yes! We care very much about the sustainability of our planet and using resources wisely. As a result, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our carbon footprint.
Some steps we have already taken:
- Recyclable shipping materials.
- Reusable glass jars for packaging.
- Biodegradable shipping peanuts.
- Banana Waste Paper packing slips.
- Recycled paper labels on packaging.
How do I make a cup of tea?
Put the kettle on! We recommend letting your water come to a full boil and allowing it to cool ever so slightly.
Add a heaping teaspoon of loose tea to your reusable strainer or biodegradable tea bag. (We have those on our website if you need them!)
Let steep for 5 minutes.
Don't forget the honey! Our flavored honey was created specifically to compliment our teas. Add as much or as little as you like and don't forget to lick the spoon.
Is there any sugar in your tea?
Our Chicory Chai has less than 1g of added sugar per serving. The sugar added to our Chicory Chai is pure maple sugar which has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar.
Does your tea have caffeine in it?
Nope! All of our teas are herbal teas and void of any actual tea leaves. Herbs are naturally un-caffeinated while black, white, and green tea leaves have caffeine in them.
Why does honey crystallize?
All honey eventually crystallizes over time. Because our honey is raw, unprocessed honey it will crystallize faster than traditional processed, store-bought honey.
Heat entire honey jar in a pot of hot water to liquefy it again or simply scoop it into your hot tea as-is.
Where do you get your honey?
We work exclusively with an apiary near Cincinnati, Ohio who utilizes sustainable organic farming practices for his bees. Each harvesting season we get first pick of his crop to supply our customers with the best of the best.
