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.
