Our collection of global tea represents all the traditional tea producing nations with their signature varieties. Over the past 4000 years, the tea plant spread to each of these nations, where it took on a unique form and flavor due to the regional terroir, namely the local soil quality, humidity, altitude, and temperature. Each region also developed specialized methods of processing the tea leaf to obtain a particular taste and form. Shaped by the traditions of their culture, local tea masters are still developing and perfecting regional tea around the world. Explore our collection!
Caffeine naturally occurs in the tea plant, causing all traditional teas to have a naturally occurring amount level of caffeine. Chemical processes can be used to extract most of the caffeine from tea leaves, however we do not carry these processed decaf teas. We do, however, have a variety of herbal teas that are naturally 100% caffeine free. On the other hand, other traditional teas are naturally highly caffeinated. These create a sustained buzz that won't result in the familiar unwanted "crash" that often follows coffee.
Back for the season, by popular demand, is our ever popular caffeine-free herbal tea to relieve stress and promote immunity. You'll find our new Cold Buster with tulsi leaf, also known as holy basil, to be just as aromatic and delicious as any of our other herbal blends. This handcrafted rooibos-based herbal remedy is packed with an array of healthy constituents. When you're starting to feel a scratchy throat or sniffles coming on, this blend can help warm and fortify you from inside. High in Vitamin C, with lemon and orange peel, hibiscus and rose hips, it also contains herbs with anti-asthmatic character and Tulsi leaf to soothe cold symptoms and control coughs. This unique blend is based on a recipe for a natural cold cure from Europe.
Ingredients: red rooibos, ginseng, tulsi holy basil, lemon peel, orange peel, hibiscus, ginger root, rose hips, cinnamon, rose petals, marigold flowers, orange, cinnamon and vanilla flavoring.

Author: Amanda K This tea has been dubbed “miracle tea” amongst my friends. Nips colds right in the bud, and tastes much better than nasty cold medicine.
Author: Janelle M I agree with Amanda. Has total healing and preventative powers! Delicious blend.
Author: yolanda ambrosek THIS IS NOT THE SAME INGREDIENTS AS 2010.PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD BLEND.YOU SHOULD WARN PEOPLE WHEN YOU TOTALLY CHANGE THE BLEND NOT LET THEM ORDER THAN FIND OUT. I DONT CARE FOR THE NEW BLEND AT ALL.
Author: Brigette Sumeraj Simply amazing for colds and bronchitis symptoms. I've been plagued with bronchitis and asthma for over a week. This is a great supplement to my prescribed meds. I ordered this when I first started feeling symptoms (7 days ago.) I was so happy to receive it in the mail and I couldn't wait to see if it would help me as my prescription meds had only given me so much relief. I drank 16 oz as hot as I could stand it at bedtime last night...and what do you know?...It was the first night of restful sleep I've had all week. I didn't even need to take my cough medicine either. And when I woke up this morning it was the best I've felt since I first fell ill. And best of all, it tastes great. I do add about a tablespoon of raw honey to the 16 oz mug for added benefit. It's so rich in Vitamin C...just delicious.
Author: Umbreona While I am not personally fond of the flavor of this Blend I do not find it unpalatable. It tastes a little spicy but has an odd sweetness about it. It is very much like sucking on a spiced up sweetened cinnamon stick.
However, I can vouch for its effects. The moment I drink it my throat feels a LOT better and it even seems to clear my sinuses a bit when taking deep breathes of it. It gives me a nice warmth inside and has staved off more vicious bugs several times now. I would recommend anyone start drinking this at the very onset of any nasty bug and while it is not a miracle cure it can really help to put those nasties down before they get their teeth in you. Waaaay better than cough medicine.
Author: Kirstie This tea is amazing for a cold. After about three weeks of cough drops and copious amount of other teas I got a sample of this tea and all of a sudden I didn't need to cough anymore.
It brews up to a deep pink/ orange color (depending both on how many times you've steeped it and how long you've steeped it) and to me taste fruity and spicy. I often catch hints of cinnamon that slightly remind me of apple cider in the fall.
