This set of four teas truly stand out in the wellness tea category in several ways:
- Our founder and Tea Sommelier Jennifer developed these teas with leading nutrition professor, scientist, and adaptogen expert Amy Symington, M.Sc. to ensure all formulations are safe, and evidence-based
- These teas include chopped whole plant ingredients – not finely ground powders or dust (like the other brands), so they can be re-steeped for a second serving (or an extra-large single serving!)
- Our pyramid tea bags are compostable, non-GMO corn-based and plastic-free (many companies use petrochemical based PP or PE to heat seal their wellness tea bags)
- Tea for Good teas are hand-blended, packed, and shipped directly from our facility, ensuring optimal freshness
- Each blend includes a key Canadian-grown ingredient
About the Blends:
Renew: Harness the power of chaga mushrooms (ours are sustainably sourced from the pristine Boreal forests of BC) in this turmeric and chai-spiced blend that’s delicious on its own, or served up as a delicious chaga chai latte. This tea is anti-inflammatory, high antioxidant, and an effective tummy settler.
