TEEN TEA GIFT BOX
Treat your teen to a selection of teas that they’ll love. Tea is a healthy habit that promotes self-care, supports stress management & can be a source of healthy nutrients for teens. Encouraging the teen in your life to reach for a cup of tasty tea when they are feeling stressed or upset, is a lifelong healthy practise to adopt.
Because our teas taste so good, they can be especially effective for teens who are resistant to eating as many veggies & fruit as might be good for them!
Tea is also a fun hobby for teens to get interested in. This selection of tea blends are enjoyable to drink on their own, but they also make fantastic hot & iced drinks - they can be transformed into tea lattes, hot chocolates, mulled drinks, iced teas & mocktails. Visit our blog for simple, inspiring & healthy recipes that are easy to make.
Teens can get drawn into having sugary, caffeinated drinks & this gift box contains great alternatives to those.
You’ll love that they are a source of antioxidants & are free of all the things teens should avoid - no artificial flavours, dyes, sweeteners, gluten, dairy & soy. In fact, nowadays, many tea brands include sweeteners, candy pieces & artificial flavours in their teas - including ones that are marketed to teens. You’ll also often discover when you read those labels closely that they contain artificial flavours, which can be a hidden source of gluten, dairy & soy. We couldn’t disagree more with this approach.
Tea can be naturally sweet & delicious without any of these additives - our secret is that we use high quality, fresh ingredients.
This collection is made up of our most popular picks for teens.
The TEEN TEA GIFT BOX is made up of exclusively caffeine free herbal teas & low-caffeine white & green wellness teas.
The 4 tea assortment contains: QUENCH (electrolyte rich, replenishing tea with a juice-like taste), Happy (uplifting, stress reliever), BEAU-TEA-FUL SKINCARE TEA (for a healthy complexion) & Philosopher’s Brew.

Pour 2 cups of water over 1 tsp. of SILK ROAD premium quality, organic loose tea. This may not seem like a lot of tea but SILK ROAD teas are incredibly fresh & flavourful, which means that you don’t need very much in order to produce a delicious cup of tea. Using any more tea leaves can result in a cup of tea that is too strong.

Loose teas are sold in refillable tins to preserve the tea’s superb flavour, freshness and nutrients. Normally, we encourage you to bring your empty tins into our shops to refill. However, this is currently on pause due to COVID-19. We’re delighted to offer another eco-friendly, low-waste way to re-use your tins!
Brown bag refills are available when you purchase tea in-store and online. Simply select “refill” to receive your tea in a brown bag refill. Immediately transfer the tea to the original tin it came in, once the brown bag refill is home or has arrived in the mail. Brown bags are 100% recyclable, compostable, biodegradable and made of post-consumer recycled paper.
CAN I STORE TEA IN THE BROWN BAG REFILL? No, it is a short term method for transport only and is not suitable for storing. It will not maintain tea’s freshness, nutrients and flavour. It does not protect against exposure to air, liquid or moisture. Air exposure causes nutrient & flavour loss; liquid/moisture causes tea to mildew. As soon as you get home from the shop, or when it arrives in the mail, transfer tea immediately into Silk Road tins - they are designed to preserve the tea.
ABOUT TEA SIZES Refer to the above chart - our loose teas are sold by volume, not weight.
