  1. Where is your tea from? - All over the world: China, Africa, Sir Lanka, Japan… depending on the tea and where it grows best.
  2. What’s ghee? - Clarified butter, which has no lactose (milk sugar) or casein (milk protein).
  3. What’s butter tea? - It’s a traditional Tibetan beverage. We’ve put a delicious and nutritious spin on ours, making it with grass fed ghee.
  4. Is this like Bulletproof Coffee? - Bulletproof actually came from butter tea. The founder was hiking the Himalayas and was given butter tea by a local. He came back and made a coffee drink out of it.
  5. Why should I drink butter tea? - Many reasons. In short, starting your day with high quality fats is a great way to kick start your metabolism and feed your brain. See our butter tea page for more on health benefits.
  6. What are the health benefits of grass fed ghee? - Our grass fed ghee is high in omega 3s and vitamin K. It also has a high smoking point, making it great for cooking and it doesn’t have casein or lactose, which can trigger food allergies. 
  7. Why should I be drinking tea instead of coffee? - Tea is less acidic than coffee and contains many micronutrients, like polyphenols and other minerals. It also has a special amino acid, L-theanine, which minimizes the jitters from caffeine and calms the mind. See our page on why tea?”  for studies on tea. 
  8. Are all your teas organic? - Most are, but not all. Some smaller tea plantations can’t afford the certification. All teas have been lab tested to ensure that they do not contain pesticides or impurities. 
  9. Are any of your teas decaf? - No. We have some teas (tisanes) that are naturally caffeine free, however we do not decaffeinate any of our teas. 
  10. What’s pu’er? - A dark tea that has been fermented and aged instead of traditionally oxidized like most black teas. It’s great for digestions and maintains many health qualities typically lost in the oxidation process. 
  11. Is there dairy in your milky oolong? - No. The “milk” describes the flavor, which is a natural characteristic acquired from the elevation, temperature and harvest season.
