  • Since 1922
  • Alvita - Natural Herb Teas That Are Good For You And The Environment

For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. We travel to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.

Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for more than 100 different teas, including classic single herb varieties, and our unique Alvita blends. The package you hold in your hand combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science, and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas. This philosophy is the very reason why you will find sensible, English pillow style tea bags that are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. And why you won't find any strings, tags or staples.

We thank you for choosing our product, but more importantly, we thank you for the trust you've put in the herbal values that we all share.

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is among the oldest of all plants, having dominated the plant world for 100 million years. In ancient times, it was a giant fernlike tree. The twenty species surviving today are miniature versions of their ancestors. Horsetail is known for its abrasive texture. In fact, Horsetail can be used to sand wood or scour and shine metal. This remarkable quality is due to its high silica content. Silica, a vital element of health, is found in all tissues and organs of the body, including the skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, tendons and ligaments. Horsetail yields a deep green color when used for dying fabric. The cut stems also make an interesting addition to herb and flower arrangements.

Suggested Use

The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance the flavor.

Add honey to sweeten.

Good price

I drink a cup every morning of horsetail grass tea. I have read that horsetail grass contains a good amount of silica which helps us to absorb calcium. It also can help with a weak bladder. I can't tell if the calcium absorbing factor is working but for sure this has strengthened my bladder.

Using for my dog!

Posted by Reviewer2996999 on Feb 01, 2012

This tea contains silica which I read will help my dog with some of the problems he is having, but I can't say yet if I see any benefits in regards to this, but will continue to give it to him.
