Welcome to our Organic Tea & Tisane Selections
Organic Teas and Herbal Tisanes are grown without any unnatural enhancements on certified estates. Although the tea plant itself is naturally resistant to leaf eating insects, the products listed in this section have been certified by their originating countries of origin, as well as the USDA. Since organic certification can take a tremendous amount of field down time and financial burdens on smaller tea growers, we have selected a few popular teas and tisanes to offer in this section.
Brewing Tips: Organic Black Teas should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Organic Ceylon and Organic Bold Leaf Pu-erh should be steeped for 4-5 minutes, while Organic Darjeeling should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. A bit greener in character, Organic First Flush Darjeeling should be steeped for 3 minutes. Organic Green Teas should be made with water that has boiled and allowed to cool for just under a minute and then infused for 2-3 minutes. Use the same water temperature for Organic White Teas, but only steep for 2 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Organic Herbal Tisanes should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. These Herbal Tisanes should be steeped for 5-7 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping.

This “lifesaving cup of tea” is a hearty English Breakfast blend of Kenyan teas. It is sourced from Williamson Teas’ Fair Trade Kenyan tea estates, now Rainforest Alliance certified, and sold on behalf of the world famous Royal National Lifeboat Institution. A portion of the profits from the sale of this tea is donated to the RNLI to help train and support the hard working lifeboat crewmen and women. Lifeboat Tea makes a full-strength brew that is strong enough to ward off the cold North Atlantic weather.
