Does the boiling water not kill the vitamins?
Boiling water doesn’t kill vitamins or minerals, it degrades them over time. All our teas have been independently tested, and over 10 minutes of brewing, the vitamins were shown to degrade slightly. Based off this research, we then add extra vitamins into each bag to make sure we meet the claims we make and all have been EU certified.
Do your teas contain caffeine?
Our teas contain a very small amount of caffeine. We choose a low caffeine green tea and only about 50% of the tea bag contains that green tea. On average, our teas contain around 12 - 15mg caffeine per cup, that is in comparison to around 40mg in a cup of English breakfast tea or around 70mg in a cup of coffee. Its as low as we can get the caffeine content whilst having the benefits of the green tea.
Are your tea bags bleached/organic?
The tea cannot be labelled organic due to the vitamins. Our tea bags are 100% free from any chlorine. They are Oxygen bleached to give the white colour but the process is 100% natural and 100% free from chemicals.
Are your teas suitable for diabetics?
There’s less than 0.5g (substantially less than this) of sugar per tea bag therefore it's a very, very low sugar drink.
Are your teas safe to drink whilst pregnant/breastfeeding?
The recommended limit of caffeine for pregnant and breastfeeding women is 200mg per day. Our teas have between 12-15mg of caffeine per cup so they are very low caffeine and substantially less than tea or coffee. Most of the energy that is given out from our teas come from the B vitamins rather than caffeine.
Do your teabags contain any plastic?
We’re proud to say our tea bags are polypropylene free.
Your teas say they contain Mannitol, are they not suitable for gluten intolerance?
Our teas do contain Mannitol as part of a binding agent in the B vitamins we use, which is a completely natural source, but does contain a wheat derivative. However, our teas are categorised as gluten free under EU regulation. The content of the wheat is in such a small quantity that it is below 20 PPM (parts per million) which constitutes safe for those following a gluten free diet and coeliacs. As we are compliant with gluten free rules we are not obliged to state the mannitol but we do declare it on our boxes regardless, to make people aware at the point of purchase.
WHY IT WORKS…
Vitamin C encourages a healthy immune system, helping to lessen the severity of colds as well as helping you heal more quickly. Amongst its myriad of health benefits (including improving skin health, preventing cardiovascular disease and boosting eye health) Vitamin C will help you heal when you need it most.
Echinacea is traditionally used to help combat flu and colds. The popular herb contains alkylamides, which are known to stimulate the immune system. It’s been traditionally used to promote seasonal wellness and support overall health.
Vitamin D is most commonly obtained from sun exposure and helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, both of which are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. It’s also been shown that vitamin D plays a key role activating the cells of the immune system.
Varieties of Ginseng are traditionally used as treatments for a number of medical conditions. As one of the most popular herbal medicines in the world, there has been evidence to suggest that it may boost the immune system.
