Are your tea blends organic?
While our Whole Health Teas & Botanical Blends are not yet designated as Certified Organic, almost all of the ingredients that we source are organic. All sources that we purchase from operate their farms and their collection of botanicals in a sustainable manner, recognizing that nurturing the soil and the plant is the only way to create a sustainable crop.
What are the tea sachets made from?
Our sachets are created from a plant-based material called Soilon. More specifically, they are made using a Polylactic Acid (PLA) derived from plant materials that is 100% commercially compostable and certified safe by the FDA. Additionally, our sachets are sealed with sound wave technology, meaning there is no glue or staples present anywhere in our process. Our sachet material is tested through a 3rd party to ensure its safety, and most importantly, we assure you that our sachet is not comprised of PET plastic or nylon.
Are the tea sachets biodegradable?
Yes, our sachet material is biodegradable. The sachets are made from the starch of plant-based material, primarily corn. The string, tag and sachets are all biodegradable in active compost with the proper amount of heat and moisture over a one-year period. Sachets will fully biodegrade in 90 days when in perfect compost conditions – 125 degrees F and 85% moisture. The speed with which it decomposes depends on the level of microbes in the active compost. Of course few of us have “perfect” compost conditions. In the natural condition it takes about three years for the sachets to fully decompose. In the case of very cold climates the sachets will not decompose.
Are your Whole Health Teas & Botanical Blends gluten-free?
Our products are made from a blend of botanicals, herbs, and leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant, and sometimes flavored using pure essential oils, therefore, our products are inherently gluten-free. We exceed all international food safety standards and have full lot traceability, performing extensive third-party lot testing for each botanical ingredient, which has showed no evidence of gluten in any of our products. Furthermore, we work closely with our growers and manufacturers of raw materials to ensure that there is no gluten in the materials from which our teabags are made.
Are your teas and botanical blends suitable for vegans and/or vegetarians?
What blends are suitable to drink while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide medical advice for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It’s best to chat with your health care professional who will be able to recommend a tea for you.
Do your blends contain caffeine?
Do your blends expire, and are they safe to drink after the date printed on the package?
Our Whole Health Botanical Blends include botanicals, herbs, spices, and teas, which are classified as a ‘low-risk item’ (like honey or bottled water) so as a general rule of thumb, they don’t expire. To ensure that our Blends are enjoyed at their optimum taste and freshness we do have a ‘best by’ as a general guide. This is located on the bottom of the box. Our Blends are best sipped before the ‘best by’ date!
