Herbal teas, technically speaking, are not true teas as they are not a product of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are properly referred to as "tisanes" or infusions, crafted from dried herbs, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit. Like tea, herbal infusions have been consumed for centuries as healing tonics to lift the spirit and enhance well-being. Our Herbal blends are hand crafted with artisan care and a vast knowledge of how theantioxidant properties and therapeutic applications ofpure, fresh herbs, flowers, and botanicals, deliver delicious healthful infusions that can delight both mind and body.

This is my favorite tea. It is wonderful hot or cold. Can't get enough. I am careful not to over steep this. It ruins the flavor.

Had to throw it out
I gave this tea several tries, but had to throw it out. The flavour is so overpowering and sour-tasting, it actually made me nauseous. I'm a diehard tea drinker, but this tea was just a miss.

I love it!
Tried the "Sweet Ginger Plum" tea for the first time as included in the "Warming Joy" gift box. Now I'm ordering a box of just this! Delicious, light & very flavorful!

Love love love it
This tea tastes like it's loaded with antioxidants :) I can drink it all day long and I am not even a tea drinker.

Odd Combination of Flavors
This tea has so many competing flavors that it's difficult to describe. I would hardly know it contained plum and ginger if they weren't in the description, since the brewed taste is very muddled. The cinnamon and cranberry seem to rise to the top of the non-hibiscus flavors. All in all, not one of my favorites.

Best Fruity Herbal Tea Ever!
This tea is incredibly flavorful and sweet. I usually have to add a sweetener to any teas that have rosehips, hibiscus, etc, but this one was luscious all on its own.

The first time I tried this tea, I didn't care much for it. I'm very happy I gave it another try! After a long day, I sat down to this and it was perfect. My Kati cup allowed me to savor it. I went out and bought a canister of it today.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
