|Tea, Herbs or Tisanes?|
|True teas are made from the Camellia sinensis plant. Herbal teas do not contain tea leaves but are created from herbs and spices. Tisanes are made from fruits.|
|Store your tea in a cool, dry, dark place, preferably in an opaque tin or jar. Store no longer than a year to prevent spoilage, deterioration, or loss of flavor.|
A serving of tea contains less than half that of coffee. Brewed coffee has an average of 110 mg. of caffeine per serving. While brewed tea has an average of 40 mg. of caffeine per serving.
Approximately 80% of caffeine can be removed from tea by steeping the tea for 30 seconds and pouring off the water. Add water again and steep for the proper amount of time.
|Did you know that a single pound of tea will yield about 180 cups of brewed tea!|
