Characteristics: vegan, sugar free, zero calories, all natural, gluten free, pesticides free, no chemicals, Non-GMO

Other Tips: 

While simmering, keep the tea covered. This will prevent the beneficial essential oils from escaping with the steam.

A longer simmer will produce a stronger cup of tea without any hint of bitterness.

If you are making a cold brew, make a whole pitcher and not just a cup. Make sure the leaves are well soaked -you may put a lid and shake- and keep your pitcher covered in the refrigerator. Your cold brew tea will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

Make Herbal Tea Ice Cubes! Just pour your cold brew tea into ice cube trays, and freeze completely. Pair with filtered water, club sodas, fruit smoothies, mocktails, and cocktails.
