----------------------------------- How to Brew Green Tea: Rinse 1-2tsp of leaves with water that has just started simmering, discard the rinse water. This 'wakes up' the leaves and removes small particles that can make it bitter. Then pour over 8oz of 160F water and steep for 2-3 minutes. (Using boiling water will burn the delicate leaves and destroy their health benefits; brewing for too long will result in a very bitter drink. If you want a stronger flavor, use more leaves and steep for the same or slightly less time.) ...and for a Pitcher of Iced Tea: Follow the same steps per tea, however triple the quantity of tea used and double the water. Let it steep for at least twenty minutes, possibly overnight. Then put in the fridge, or pour directly over ice. Note that the caffeine and antioxidants tend to disappear after 3-4 hours of brewing, so be careful!

How many cups of tea is in a package? How do I store my tea? What is the shelf life of herbal teas and moringa?
We recommend using ~1-2tsp (heaped) of tea for a standard mug, though you may want more or less depending on your taste, infuser and water temperature! Therefore...
Always store tea is a dark and airtight container or cupboard (light degrades the leaves removing the tasty goodness!). If stored correctly, our teas will retain their taste for up to three years. After that they are still safe to drink, but won't taste of much! If stored in an unsealed container or exposed to light, our teas should be consumed within six months of purchase to get the maximum flavor.
Powdered Moringa is best consumed within six months when stored properly to get the maximum flavor and potential health benefits.
Nut allergies: All of our products are handled, packed and processed in facilities that handles nuts and seeds. You can also check our ingredients list in the description tab of each tea or product to see if they have added/blended nuts, nut oils or other nut derived compounds.
Chamomile teas: A relatively low percentage of people are sensitive to chamomile and develop allergic reactions. People sensitive to ragweed and chrysanthemums or other members of the Compositae family are more prone to develop contact allergies to chamomile, especially if they take other drugs that help to trigger the sensitization (Srivastava, 2010). ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity and is a scale to gauge antioxidant units. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the antioxidant level.
