In the Know

The rich bronze color and distinct malty taste is the trademark of teas named after its place of production, Assam, India. It is here where high temperatures during annual monsoon seasons provide the perfect greenhouse-like conditions that allow this iconic black tea to thrive. Enriching and invigorating, this classic tea is a staple amongst tea aficionados, either on its own, or as an ingredient in popular tea blends.

This Indian tea boasts an interesting history in the west, begun when a Scottish trader came upon the plant, Camellia sinensis var. assamica, and witnessed local tribesmen brewing the leaves and seeds to drink. In 1830, the plant was sent to a botanical gardens in Calcutta to be examined, where it was, indeed, identified as a variety of tea.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

Bleach Free Tea Bag

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
