KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Not only do their herbs need to be organic and ethically sourced, but importantly they are high quality and often medicinal grade to deliver therapeutic effects. After being harvested or wild collected and then cut, cleaned and carefully dried, their herbs make their way to their solar-powered facility in Sebastopol, California. Here, they are tested for quality markers.
Each herb has its own quality standard to ensure optimal activity. That can mean high essential oil content, the right amount of bitterness, or a minimum level of an active compound. But the result for each is the same: a tea that has power. This commitment to quality is one of the things that sets Traditional Medicinals apart from other tea brands.
