Mountain Rose herbs News From the Tea Shelf!

Have you seen our gorgeous new tea boxes?

Did you know that they're actually made from...recycled newspapers?

Oh, I know. They're so pretty it's hard to believe, isn't it?

After two years of planning, sourcing, and designing, we are overjoyed to finally introduce a sustainable package that’s worthy of our deliciously herby, certified organic, and fair trade teas. From a sea of packaging choices, we’ve carefully selected materials taken out of the waste stream and transformed into environmentally friendly alternatives. All of our 4oz teas will now arrive boxed in this recycled loveliness. Really exciting stuff!
