New Packaging: Organic Matcha Tea

Our delicious Organic Matcha Tea is now packaged in a 3.5oz amber glass jar. This jar is made from amber glass, and can continue to be reused to store all kinds of goodies. We also offer our Matcha Tea in bulk bags of 8oz or 1lb. Our luxurious Organic Matcha Tea is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. It is unique in two aspects of farming and processing. First, the green tea plants for matcha are shade grown for about three weeks before harvest. This process slows the growth of the plant, stimulates an increase in chlorophyll levels and increases the production of certain amino acids, leading to a robust, vegetal flavor. Unlike other green teas, the stems and veins are removed […]

  • Pollinator Tea From Mountain Rose Herbs Inside Tea Strainer

New in the Shop: Organic Pollinator Tea

Organic Pollinator Tea This new organic tea blend has a sweet and honey-like flavor with an uplifting minty balance. It is crisp and light with distinct floral notes, and makes a great iced sun tea. All of us here at Mountain Rose Herbs express our deep gratitude for our pollinating friends in a variety of different ways. After all, without the hard work of the pollinating insects, it is difficult to imagine botanical diversity in our native ecosystems. Bees and other insect pollinators allow nearly 70% of all flowering plants to reproduce. The fruit and seeds from bee pollinated plants account for over 30% of the food that we consume. Sadly, pollinators face a precarious future as the widespread use of neonicotinoid pesticides, as well as fungicides, continue to […]
