Buddha Teas typically doesn’t talk a lot about these types of things on our pages but in this case, for this tea, it seems appropriate to give our customers some more info. It’s sort of hard to imagine, but sugar can be more deadly than opioids. Opioids kill just over 100 people per day in the US and Type 2 diabetes alone kills twice as many on any given day. It’s already a huge topic in the medical world and massive amounts of research is being done to figure out ways to prevent and treat this debilitating illness. Sugar causes chronic inflammation when eaten in excess but it’s almost as if we don’t have a choice but to partake given that most of our food is highly processed. It’s a simple fact, that sugar in America is a very real issue. While we have medicines and homeopathic options at our disposal, ultimately, healthy lifestyle changes are necessary to beat this epidemic. Let’s do our part to keep our bodies healthy for as long as we possibly can!

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us.

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.

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.
