Alvita's Teas Begin With a Choice.
Every Alvita tea is infused with how much they care about every herb - and how each can benefit you. So making the perfect cup of tea starts with where they get their herbs.
Alvita Makes sure that every ingredient comes from responsible growers who make the land - and the herbs that grow on it - their primary concern. From there, their team painstakingly reviews the scientific data to make sure of proper dosage, and the perfect brewing techniques, so that their teas can give you the maximum benefit and the best taste.
A Company Dedicated to the Environment
Walk into any health food store these days and you will be instantly overwhelmed with the wide range of teas that are available. Not only is there a seemingly endless variety of teas made from various herbs, but there are dozens of brands of tea that all claim to be organic or healthy. One of the top brands of natural herbal tea is Alvita tea, which is available through a number of online outlets as well as in the top health food shops throughout the country. With a huge selection of different herbal remedies and teas, Alvita certainly helps contribute to the extensive choice that they have as consumers.
Some of the most popular types of Alvita tea out there on the market today include fenugreek, rooibos, senna leaf, catnip, and parsley. Most of the types of tea will contain only one type of herb, to ensure that customers have access to the pure effects of that herb, be it for relaxation or to help with a specific health problem. Valerian root, for example, is well known for its relaxing properties. The Alvita valerian tea contains pure valerian root, so that those wishing to experience these benefits will not find their experience marred with other fillers, like some other tea companies.
With a history dating back to 1922, Alvita tea has been manufacturing pure and natural singles and blends. They are most well known for their commitment to the environment, and offer some of the most sustainable and green- friendly packaging for their tea products currently available. The box that contains the tea is composed of 100% recycled board, which can then be recycled again to keep the trend going and eliminate waste. The bags themselves that contain the tea have no excessive strings, tags, or staples, but are instead "English pillow" style, so that no space is wasted.
The paper used in the teabags that hold Alvita tea is also completely recycled, and the bags are oxygen bleached rather than bleached with chlorine, which can cause damage to the ground water and environment. This attention to detail extends beyond their packaging, and also helps describe the products, as the tea is crafted with a purity and attention to detail that is good for the earth and for customers alike. That is why more and more customers have chosen this brand of herbal tea over others, when faced with such a wide selection.
Steeped in Tradition.
In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root stem contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
Alvita's new organic products provide the most appropriate dose, precise preparation and use instructions with Organic, Gluten Free and Kosher certifications. Only the highest quality alfalfa was used in those first tea bags and today Alvita continues with that same standard of excellence.
For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound beneficial properties of herbal teas. They search the glove for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.
Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for a broad array of different teas, including classic single herb varieties and their unique Alvita blends. Each Alvita product combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas. This philosophy is the very reason why you will find sensible, English pillow style tea bags that are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. Any why you won't find any strings, tags or staples.
