Tea 

How much caffeine is in tea?

A lot of variables like plant varietal, plant age, growing region, field conditions, soil nutrients, rainfall, and length of the growing season influence how much caffeine is present in plucked tea leaves to begin with. Caffeine content will be further affected during production of the leaves into the finished variety like white, green, black, etc. Finally, the amount of tea leaves per cup, hotter water, and longer steeping all contribute to more caffeine per cup.

Below are general guidelines for amount of caffeine per tea variety (These quantities may vary depending on specific tea):

Tea Type 
Caffeine Per 8 oz. Cup
Black Tea
60-120 mg 
Matcha 60-100 mg
Oolong Tea 
45-75 mg
Green Tea
35-70 mg
White Tea
10-55 mg
Herbal/Rooibos Tea
0 mg  

As a reference, a brewed cup of coffee generally contains between 80-150 mg of caffeine. 

 

What is the difference between tea and tisanes (herbal tea)?

All tea types including white tea, green tea, oolong tea and black tea come from the same plant, called the Camellia Sinensis plant. Any leaf, herb, root, fruit or flower, like chamomile, rooibos, and peppermint come from a different plant or flower and are therefore considered herbal tea or tisane. All herbal teas are naturally 100% caffeine-free, while anything deriving from the Camellia Sinensis plant naturally contains caffeine. 

 

How do I brew tea?

Always remember to start with clean filtered water. Refer to our tea brewing instructions for more details.

 

Why do your tins have different weights?

Each variety of tea will have a different weight and volume. For example, chamomile blossoms are very light but some of our traditional black teas are more dense and heavy.

How many servings of tea are in your different size pouches?

Pouch Size Approximate Servings
Sample Pouch 5-8 Cups 
2 Oz.
Apx. 25 Cups 
4 Oz.
Apx. 50 Cups 
8 Oz.
Apx. 100 Cups 
16 Oz.
Apx. 200 Cups

 

How long does tea last?

Although tea will technically never "go bad", it will stay freshest for up to a year if kept in a cool, dry area in an airtight container.

 

Are your teas Kosher?

Yes, a lot of our teas are now certified kosher by OU or Earth Kosher 

 

Do your teas contain gluten?

A lot of our teas are now gluten-free.
