Where are the ingredients of your organic herbal tea from?
The ingredients for our tea - like our chamomile tea and red rooibos tea - are mostly sourced from Japan. We believe in environmental friendliness and sustainable farming practices, and thus only work with small and reliable farmers in Japan for the best natural tea ingredients. Our tea demands ingredients of the best quality, so we only use Setouchi lemons. These lemons are derived from Setouchi, an inland sea in Japan and they are 100% organic. They do not contain any harmful pesticides or impurities, making it completely safe for consumption. Drinking lemon-infused organic tea can aid digestion and flush toxins from your body. The health benefits of tea are endless!

Are your organic herbal tea products made with any processed tea leaves?
No. Our organic tea is made with only natural unprocessed dried fruits, herbs and flowers. The generic tea bag containing chamomile tea or red rooibos tea is usually of lower quality as the leftovers from tea production are combined in the tea bag. So, when you steep a bag of chamomile, it releases a plethora of tannins which create a harsh tasting flavor. Thus leaving the tea - dull, stale and lacking an aroma. Nilufer chooses to produce natural tea and utilises only whole loose ingredients which are packed with antioxidants and gives Nilufer’s different types of tea the label of healthy tea.
In what ways are your organic herbal tea products artisan?
We take pride in ensuring that our natural tea is carefully and individually hand packed with only the finest ingredients. We believe every single customer deserves tea blends worthy of the words, ‘utter perfection’. Nilufer even sells specially made heart shaped lemon slices to add some zing to our beloved fruit tea. All ingredients in the different types of tea we sell are hand measured individually to ensure every tea bag is consistent.
