This herb has always been used in traditionally Germany and other countries where it's prescribed for mild depression. Many doctors see it as a better alternative to modern anti-depressants. A few years ago it became fashionable in the UK, but big Pharma hit back with a widely reported warning that it could be toxic if take with prescription drugs (which is the case with many drugs)
Unlike our coffees, our teas are all sold pre-packed. We source them ourselves, cut and blend them if necessary on the premises before packing them is small runs.
Teas mixed on the premises include Organic Breakfast Tea and herbal blends like Sleepeasy.
Before being exported teas are usually processed at origin. Black teas are fermented while drying and Green Teas are dried faster and not allowed to ferment.
Of the fermented black teas the strongest are teas that go through the (self-explanatory) crush tear and curl process known as CTC. But even just having small sized pieces (ie fannings) can make tea stronger as the surface area is increased.
