What makes Flying Bird Botanicals unique?
We are a very small tea company truly passionate about what we do. We love tea and drink a lot of it! Our blends are crafted from teas and herbs sourced as directly as possible looking first to farmers here in the USA. All of our recipes are original and unique offering herbal formulas made by people who love and use herbs themselves for wellness. We strive to be a source of beauty in the world working hard to develop relationships with growers and always prioritizing community and quality over profit.
What teas make great iced tea?
While we love all of our teas iced, there are definitely a few that really shine when brewed up as iced tea. For non caffeinated options, we love Old Town Berry, Lavender Orange Red, Peace of Mind and Farm & Forest. For caffeinated options, the simplicity of Ancient Sunrise is amazing. We also love Vanilla Rose Ceylon, White Lemon Ginger and Lemon Mint Maté.
What are your tea bags made out of?
Our teas are made out of a beautiful silken plant based fabric. They are biodegradable and compostable. They are not made of petroleum based nylon or plastic.
How many servings do I get from a loose leaf tin?
Each tin holds about 2oz. A general rule of thumb is that each ounce of tea by weight makes a gallon of brewed tea. By this formula, you get about 32 8oz cups.
How long will my tea last after I purchase it?
Our herbs and teas are sourced as directly as possible so they arrive to us fresh and vibrant. We use a beautiful, recycled steel airtight tin made in the USA to keep the tea super fresh once it leaves our shop. We can safely say that your tea will be good for at least two years and most likely longer.
Are you certified organic?
Yes! We are certified through the WSDA and the USDA
Do you offer any shipping discounts for large orders?
Yes! All retail orders $75+ get free standard shipping every time! Use code FREESHIP75 at checkout.
What shipping method do you use for "Standard Shipping"?
