By EcoTeas4 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

What's an 'Eco' Tea?
'Eco' comes from the Greek world oikos, which means home. Ecology is the study of home. Economy is the management of the home. At EcoTeas, we like to think of home on three levels: the body, the household, and the planet. That's why an 'Eco' Tea is healthy, affordable, and sustainable.
The EcoTeas Story
We started EcoTeas in the year 2000 in the kitchen of our home in Ashland, Oregon. We came together as three best friends with a shared vision: to create a grassroots tea company that supports organic agriculture, fair trade business practices, and healthy living. We work to bring you the highest quality teas at the best possible prices. In addition to providing green livelihoods for our farmers and ourselves, we strive to inspire simple, healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
We source our rooibos from an organic, fair trade cooperative of indigenous farmers in rural South Africa. EcoTeas rooibos is grown and processed by hand for superior quality, potency, and sustainability.

When brewed as directed, this tea provides an ORAC value of 2,000 µmol TE/240 ml, which is about as strong as a typical cup of green tea.
Hot: To release the full flavor and benefits of rooibos, steep a tea bag in 200ºF water for 10+ minutes.
Iced: Rooibos requires hot water to release its beneficial properties and flavor. Brew hot tea at double strength, then add ice.
Special Instructions: South African farmers traditionally place a pot of rooibos on the woodstove and let it simmer all day. Not only is this the tastiest way to drink rooibos, it's also the healthiest, as the long steep-time releases more antioxidants.
More Options: Try drinking rooibos with EcoTeas loose rooibos and a bombilla.
