In the Know

Blessed thistle, Mary thistle, Marian thistle, holy thistle … sounds biblical, doesn’t it? Logic would have us believe this is an ancient, spiritually relevant plant. For sure, milk thistle was first documented thousands of years ago, but where it actually got its biblical nickname, well, that we can’t say for sure.

What we do know for sure is that milk thistle is an annual or biannual plant with purple flowering heads, quite recognizable for its unique appearance, but not so well known as the basis for a healing, single herb tea. Not yet, anyway!

The first century Roman naturalist, Pliny the Elder, is known to have discovered milk thistle as useful when dealing with liver issues. Additionally, the Greek physician, Dioscorides, is said to have incorporated milk thistle into his kidney and liver disease healing regimes; he cites its use in his encyclopedia of medicinal plants that he created while traveling with the army. (A remarkable collection of information that was the authority on plant medicine for 1500 years!)

Why Drink Milk Thistle Tea?

Though you will likely not reach for the milk thistle for a tasty afternoon teatime treat, if you feel the need to sweep your liver and kidneys clean, you’ll want to partake. Further, milk thistle’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities make it a popular choice when wishing to protect your nerves against cell damage. Further, some purport milk thistle to have anti-aging qualities. Some studies have also indicated that milk thistle may even protect against bone loss.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas Logo

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. 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. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

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.
