What are the health benefits associated with your tea blends?
Drinking tea is associated with a range of health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, tea can support immune function and promote cardiovascular health. Its calming properties may help reduce stress and improve mental focus. Regular consumption is linked to improved hydration and may contribute to weight management. Additionally, various teas offer unique qualities, such as anti-inflammatory effects and digestive support.
Our KT Avenue exclusive tea blends offer unique health benefits with carefully selected ingredients. Butterfly pea flower provides antioxidants and reduces anxiety, raspberry leaf balances hormone levels, ashwagandha root aids stress management, and mullein leaf soothes respiratory issues. Damiana and blue lotus contribute to relaxation and mood enhancement, creating a blend that not only delights the palate but also promotes overall well-being.
What do I need to drink loose leaf tea?
To enjoy loose-leaf tea, you'll need loose-leaf tea of your choice, a tea infuser or strainer, a teapot or teacup, and a water kettle.
Load your tea infuser with the desired amount of loose-leaf tea. Place the loaded infuser into your teapot or teacup. Pour hot water over the tea leaves, ensuring they are fully covered. Let it steep for the recommended time, then remove the infuser and enjoy your freshly brewed tea.
Remember, the beauty of loose-leaf tea lies in its versatility and the ability to customize your tea-drinking experience. Start with the basics, and as you become more acquainted with loose-leaf tea, you can explore additional accessories based on your preferences.
What is the shelf life of your tea blends and tea products?
Yes, tea does have a shelf life. While tea leaves themselves do not spoil in the same way that perishable foods do, their quality can deteriorate over time. The shelf life of tea depends on various factors, including the type of tea, how it's stored, and its packaging.
To extend the shelf life of tea, follow these storage tips:
- Store tea in an airtight container.
- Keep tea away from direct sunlight and moisture.
- Store tea in a cool and dark place, away from strong odors.
- Avoid storing tea near spices or other aromatic substances, as tea can absorb odors.
- If you buy tea in bulk, consider dividing it into smaller portions to minimize air exposure.
Ultimately, the best way to determine the quality of your tea is to use your senses. If the tea still looks, smells, and tastes good after its recommended shelf life, it is likely safe to consume, although it may not be as enjoyable as when it was fresh.
How does dropshipping work for your tea blends and other products?
