I’ve always wanted to be a tea drinker. I’ve even bought cute tea pots in an effort to motivate myself to dabble and experiment with different flavors, leaves, and brewing methods. However, I never quite made it past the typical white tea bag and adding a little cream for comfort. That is, until I discovered *Pique Tea Crystals.
Spoiler alert, we have a huge discount for Thriving Home readers too! Allow me to gush a little about Pique Tea first and then I’ll give you the goods (i.e. the exclusive 28% discount…eeek! *Affiliate links included but opinions are 100% ours!)
We’ve fallen in love with Pique Tea Crystals. The taste! The health benefits! The purity of this product! AND the simplicity of a dump and go packet!
Did you know that tea is also the second healthiest beverage you should drink after water?
In fact, scientific studies have shown that drinking 2-3 cups of tea a day can reduce inflammation, improve gut health, reduce stress, increase sustained energy and promote stronger heart health due to the high polyphenol content naturally found in them. Count me in!
However, like food, not all tea is created equal.
Most traditional teas are sprayed with pesticides to protect their leaves from insects and infection? These chemicals get in the soil and also wind up in the tea you drink. Research has shown that 77 percent of the teas in the U.S. would fail European Union pesticide import standards (1), with test results revealing traces of endosulfan, a pesticide linked to impaired fertility (2). Yikes!
It’s not just tea leaves you need to worry about. Tea bags can also be problematic, as they are often bleached in chlorine. That chlorine stays with the bag and becomes part of your tea when you brew it. Not exactly what you wanted to drink, is it?
To make matters worse, paper tea bags are treated with epichlorohydrin, a compound commonly used as an adhesive, plastic, paint or pesticide. Considered to be a potential carcinogen by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, epichlorohydrin has been shown to cause cancer in animals and suppress immune function. (3)(4)
If you want to make sure the tea you drink isn’t polluted with chemicals, you need to do your homework.
So with doctors recommending drinking 3- 5 cups of tea per day to experience all its amazing benefits, it’s important to find one that delivers on the purity and taste, AND is super convenient to use, too.
We’ve found that Pique Tea delivers on all of those things! Check it. Simply tear, mix, and drink. Hot or cold!
