Organic Pollinator Tea

This new organic tea blend has a sweet and honey-like flavor with an uplifting minty balance. It is crisp and light with distinct floral notes, and makes a great iced sun tea.

All of us here at Mountain Rose Herbs express our deep gratitude for our pollinating friends in a variety of different ways. After all, without the hard work of the pollinating insects, it is difficult to imagine botanical diversity in our native ecosystems. Bees and other insect pollinators allow nearly 70% of all flowering plants to reproduce. The fruit and seeds from bee pollinated plants account for over 30% of the food that we consume. Sadly, pollinators face a precarious future as the widespread use of neonicotinoid pesticides, as well as fungicides, continue to contribute to the decimation of bee and other populations worldwide. It is in the spirit of supporting and raising awareness about the importance of honeybees and pollinating insects that our newest tea blend was born.

Our new Pollinator Tea is made with organically grown herbs loved by bees and other pollinators that can be found in the Cascadian bioregion we call home. Sweet with abundant floral notes, this delicious herbal tea can be enjoyed both hot or iced and is a kid favorite. Add a dollop of local honey to show your support for the bees and beekeepers in your area.
