From the corners of the earth, to the bottom of your teacup, we're preserving tradition and creating a sustainable future. For over 30 years we have been making herbal teas blending the ancient art of traditional formulating with the most modern methods to ensure you a consistently reliable and good tasting cup.
We know that you choose to live as if there is a tomorrow, as we do. That's why we purchase our herbs and manufacture our teas sustainably. Whether it's working with a cooperative of herb collectors, supporting organic herb farmers or using 100% wind power to offset our electricity use, we believe that teas that are good for you should be good for the earth.
Breathe Easy is a complex and aromatic blend of herbal tastes—spicy-aromatic and cooling, somewhat bitter and astringent and slightly sweet.
You Deserve Only The Best
We use pharmacopoeial grade herbs in this tea. That means that these herbs meet the highest standards set for quality, purity, strength, identity and composition. While it is accepted to use food grade herbs in herbal tea products, we choose instead to use the higher pharmacopoeia grade for its enhanced quality.
What is a Pharmacopeia?
Most countries in the world, including the United States, have a Pharmacopoeia. A country's pharmacopoeia is an official guide of quality standards for ingredients used in dietary supplements, as well as over-the-counter and prescription medications.
Directions: Brew Well to be Well
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink three cups daily or as needed. Adding honey may enhance benefits, especially in dry climates.
Consult a health care provider before using if you have hypokalemia or if you are taking any kind of hormonal therapies, diuretics, potassium depleting agents or MAO inhibitors. In rare cases, excessive consumption of teas that contain eucalyptus leaf can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
