FAQ

Open tab

GENERAL

ARE YOU OPERATING WITH A COVID-19 SAFETY PLAN? 

Yes, we are! We’re sticking to guidelines that were set down in March 2020, as well as taking new precautions at our facility.

We are processing and fulfilling your orders within two business days. But we’ve seen delivery delays of up to two weeks in the USA and three weeks in Canada. 

If you have questions, please read our full plan here, and if your question isn’t addressed, please reach out to info@bighearttea.com.

CAN I COME BUY TEA FROM YOU IN PERSON?

All of our teas are available online or at our stockist cafes and boutiques. We do not have a brick-and-mortar location for selling tea to the public.

CAN YOU CUSTOMIZE MY ORDER WITH A WRITTEN NOTE?

As much as we’d like to, we currently don't offer this  but stay tuned!

I TRIED YOUR CHAI LATTE AT A CAFE AND FELL IN LOVE — DO YOU SELL THAT?

Our labor-of-love masala chai recipe is only available for wholesale in St. Louis! See our list of stockists to find a coffeehouse near you.

I WANT TO SELL YOUR TEA AT MY BUSINESS!

Awesome! Get a wholesale account going here.

MY BUSINESS IS NOT IN THE USA OR CANADA. CAN I STILL WORK WITH YOU?

We would love to, but unfortunately not right now. We hope to soon!

TEA, INGREDIENTS, & SAFETY

WHAT’S IN YOUR TEA?

Big Heart Tea Co. uses 100 percent organic herbs in all herbal blends. Our matcha, black, green and oolong teas are all sourced directly from small farms. We only use whole ingredients, no flavors, coloring or sweeteners added. Just whole ingredients. Please see product pages for a full listing of ingredients and certifications. 

Our certified organic herbal teas are made with whole ingredients, meaning the herbs aren’t “tea cut” before they arrive at our warehouse, so they’re extra flavorful.

WHAT'S IN YOUR TEA?

Just tea. Our matcha, green, oolong, and black teas are single origin tea leaf sourced from our direct trade farm partners around the world. Learn more about the farms we work with here.

WHAT ARE YOUR TEABAGS MADE OF?

Our tea sachets are also made from 100% compostable, non-toxic PLA. That means no harmful chemicals leeching into your tea. So go ahead and sip safe.

WHAT’S THE EXPIRATION DATE FOR YOUR PRODUCTS?

Our teas are non-perishable; we recommend up to a 2-year shelf life for flavor and freshness.

WHAT ARE THE SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR YOUR TEA?

Our tea safety is based off of the standard dosage of up to 3 cups of tea a day, brewed in 8oz of water for 2 minutes. All of our herbal and spice ingredients meet California’s Prop 65 testing for heavy metals, and our Fake Coffee was tested for caffeine content (and it’s officially classified as “Without Caffeine!”).

HOW MUCH CAFFEINE IS IN TEA?

This is a tricky question, because it depends on the freshness of the tea and the way it’s been brewed. But here’s the basic rundown:

  • Our herbal teas are all naturally caffeine free.
  • Green and black teas contain between 50-80mg of caffeine per serving — or 1/3 to 1/2 the amount in an 8 oz serving of drip coffee. The myth that green tea has less caffeine than black may come from the fact that green teas contain natural properties that counteract the negative effects of caffeine.
  • Matcha has the most, at 60-90 per 2 gram serving. But it also contains green tea’s counteractive properties.
  • Heat extracts more caffeine, so hot brewing will have more caffeine than cold brewing. However, most cold brew tea recipes call for a larger portion of tea, so they will have more caffeine. 

WHY ORGANIC?

We source certified organic herbs to ensure farm workers and their families are not exposed to harmful chemicals and to protect soil health and water quality around the world. All our herbal and spice ingredients are also tested for heavy metals.

WHAT DOES “DIRECT-TRADE” MEAN?

Direct-trade means a one or two-degree connection to your farmer. Working hand in hand with farmers, we are able to ensure that the tea you drink comes from a place of health - from field to factory to you. The majority of the farms we work with are all run by small families. Every farm we work with is pesticide free and brimming with biodiversity.

See our full list of partner farms here.

HOW ARE YOUR TEA BAGS PLASTIC-FREE? WHAT IS “PLA”?

PLA (polylactic acid) is a vegetable-based material that mimics petroleum-based plastic. Our tea bags are made from a 100% compostable woven mesh called Soilon. Soilon is PLA derived from corn starch, and is completely biodegradable: a safe, non-toxic material that’s perfect for filtering tea and herbal infusions. Read all about it here. We also use PLA cellophane inner liners that are 100% compostable as well.

HOW DO I COMPOST PLA?

PLA is 100% compostable by municipal composters! If there isn’t one in your area, you can throw them in the trash knowing they’re biodegradable and non-toxic.

Plastic-Free Tea Bags

Open tab

Our bags are made from a biodegradable woven mesh called Soilon. Soilon is derived from corn starch and can be composted completely. Soilon is a safe, non-toxic, environment-friendly material — perfect for filtering tea and herbal infusions. 

Q&A

How is Soilon made?

Soilon is made of poly lactic acid (PLA) polymer resin, made by lactic fermentation of glucose (derived from corn starch) by an enzyme and polymerization. 

PLA, sounds like plastic. . . 

Unlike traditional petroleum-based plastics, PLA is a plastic substitute made from fermented plant starch (usually corn).

How does Soilon decompose?

Soilon can be decomposed rapidly when it is put into heated composting system, and quite slowly when it is used in usual circumstances (so don’t litter, obvs). The degradation is initiated by temperature, moisture, and alkaline material, and can be completely, safely degraded by microorganisms.

How long does decomposition take?

According to this article in the Scientific American, PLA can break down into its constituent parts (carbon dioxide and water) within 3 months in a “controlled composting environment”  (an industrial composting facility, heated to 140°F and surrounded by plenty of digestive microbes). It will take far longer in a home compost bin, and hopefully won’t end up in a landfill packed so tightly that no light and little oxygen are available to assist in the process. Any organic matter in landfills is a huge waste, y’all, and releases methane. Indeed, analysts estimate that a PLA could take anywhere from 100 to 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill.

So, are your tea bags safe?

Our tea bags are 100% safe. They contain no hazardous substances to leech into your tea, such as endocrine disruptors (environmental hormones), and are naturally anti-fungal and antibacterial.
