What is in our White Rose and Goji tea?

This is a botanical blend of white tea, delicate flowers and naturally sweet goji berries. Individually hand gathered, white tea is the new young leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It is renowned for its high antioxidant content, and has less caffeine than green tea. Hibiscus flowers, rose petals, and rose hips bring this beautiful blend to life, offering a clean body, with a light, refreshing flavour.

Our ingredients for this blend are sourced from India and China – and hand packed with care, by us, in Victoria, Australia.

 

 

What are the health benefits of drinking White Rose and Goji tea?

White tea is from the same plant as green tea, called Camelia Sinensis, however it is picked first, and these young leaves contain less caffeine than green tea. Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are rich in antioxidants, amino acids and in carotenoids which support healthy eyesight. They are also rich in Vitamin A, C, and minerals including Zinc, Magnesium and Iron. Rosehips (Rosa Canina,) and Rose petals, (Rosa Centifolia,) also offer antioxidants properties and are rich in vitamin C. Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa) has traditionally been enjoyed for its powerful antioxidant properties which help protect cells from oxidative damage. It has also been used to help reduce high blood pressure, and to lower high cholesterol levels.

Does White Rose and Goji tea contain caffeine?

Our White Rose and Goji tea does contain some caffeine, but less than green tea. White tea is the new young tea leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant, which are picked first, and contain less than green tea. This slightly caffeinated tea is blended with Rose, Goji berries, Hibiscus, Rose hips, which are caffeine free.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our White Rose and Goji is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

Our pyramid tea bags are also not made from plastic. They are made from a biodegradable, non-GMO, plant-based material called Soilon, which meets all compostability standards in Japan, North America and Europe. However it is important to note, they will definitely take longer than other compost items to decompose. The material manufacturers recommend commercial composting as a quicker alternative to address this longer time of breakdown.

If you are looking for the most environmentally friendly option, we will always recommend drinking loose leaf tea.
