How many cups of tea is in a package? How do I store my tea?

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...

  • 1oz of tea makes around 12-14 cups
  • 4oz of tea makes around 50-56 cups
  • 8oz of tea makes around 100-112 cups

Always store tea in a dark and airtight container or cupboard (light degrades the tea 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! 

What does the ORAC score mean?

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. 

Allergen Warning:

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).
