I am a huge avocado fan and when I heard there was a tea, I had to order! It a very mild tea with excellent flavor. You can leave the teabag in your mug the whole day and it will not turn bitter. The peach tea has hints of peach. not overpowering, but delicious. I love all the antioxidant properties it has! Will definitely order again! Give it a try!!
BEST I HAVE EVER TASTED
Will add tea back into my evening routine because of you. No sweetener needed, which is great. And, its one of the healthiest teas someone can drink. Thanks for letting me know about it, I will tell others.

Our tea is upcycled from the annual trimmings of Avocado trees in Southern California. Did you know avocado trees grow up to 3’ in circumference every year? Regular trimming harnesses the energy of the tree to produce more fruit with less water. We use the previously discarded trimmings to provide you with a healthy nutrient rich functional tea.
Did you know, the average wage of a tea picker worldwide is a shocking and exploitive $3.00 per day. Many countries are known to use child labor. Tea pickers have been oppressed since the invention of tea. Avocado Tea pays $26.00 per hour - per person. Our workers have regular breaks, and our management team is GAP certified -Good Agricultural Practices, which means they ensure safe & sanitized working conditions and a high level of pay for our amazing workers! Many laborers are unemployed after the Avocado harvest and by now picking the leaves their pay cycle is extended generating more yearly revenue.

Night after night I drank my tea researching and learning about the many nutritional benefits inside of this amazing leaf. It was then that I realized this was a tea the world needed to try and hoped they would love it as much as I do. A couple years later we have been honored to have won a few of the most prestigious awards in the world for the beautiful and luxurious flavor profile of the leaf.
