For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-supporting properties of herbal teas. The far reaches of the globe were searched 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 a broad array of different teas, including classic single herb varieties, and the unique Alvita blends. This package 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 wont' find any strings, tags or staples.
Thank you for choosing this product, but more importantly, thank you for the trust you've put in the herbal values that are shared.
A perennial plant native to the United States, Echinacea (E. angustifolia & E. purpurea) was used by the Plains Indians more than any other plant. Also known as purple coneflower or black sampson, Echinacea has been used traditionally for it's many health benefits. Another plant highly revered by American Indians was the versatile Golden Seal (Hydrastis canadensis). Often referred to as "yellow root," the brilliant golden juice was extracted from it's roots and used as an ornamental dye for clothes, weapons, face paint and as a traditional herb to support health. Early settlers adopted the use of Golden Seal which, along with Echinacea, quickly became a mainstay of American herbalism.
