FAQ

What’s the difference between organic and certified organic teas?

Unfortunately the term 'organic' is not currently regulated under Australian law which means that any company or product can claim to be organic. This is why it is so important to always look for the 'certified organic' logo (eg. the ACO bud logo) on products to ensure the organic integrity of your product.

When people choose to buy products with a certified organic logo like the Australian Certified Organic (ACO) bud logo they are protected by consumer laws. ACO is the most respected, strictest and most thorough food regulatory program here in Australia and internationally and Bodhi Organic Tea conforms to their rigorous standards and policies.

ACO routinely and randomly audit and test companies and products that use the bud logo. All ingredients whether they are sourced locally or imported must comply with the strict requirements of the Australian Certified Organic Standard.

How many cups of tea should I drink daily to reap the full health benefits of my wellness tea?

We recommend you drink 2-3 cups daily of our herbal wellness teas and green tea.

Breastfeeding mothers should drink 3+ cups daily to help boost milk production.

Do you have a shop where I can come and buy teas in person?

Yes we do. Our retail shop and Bodhi HQ is Shop 5/379 Old South Head Road, North Bondi. We would love you to come and visit us so we can show you through the range and you can have a try of some teas.

What teas contain caffeine?

All tea varieties - white, green, oolong and black - which come from the same plant, camellia sinensis contain caffeine in varying amounts. White tea which undergoes the least amount of processing contains the least amount of caffeine. Green tea contains around 20 mg of caffeine per cup, which is a lot lower than a cup of brewed coffee having between 100-300mg of caffeine per cup, and less than black tea containing 45 mg.

For those who are sensitive to caffeine try steeping your tea twice. A majority of the caffeine from your tea can be removed by pouring hot water over the leaves, and then leaving it for 30 seconds. Caffeine in tea is released during the first 30 seconds of steeping. Pour out the tea and then re-steep your tea with more hot water using the same leaves.

Herbal teas are free from caffeine.

What Bodhi teas can children drink?

Our SereniTEA, TranquiliTEA, ImmuniTEA and VitaliTEA are excellent caffeine-free herbal teas for children.

Where are your teas grown?

Are Bodhi teas gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free?

Yes all of our teas are gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free.

What is the best way to store your tea?

What are your tea bags made from?

We use premium 100% plant-based biodegradable ‘Soilon’ pyramid infusers made in Japan. Our tea bags are free from blench or plastic chemicals commonly found in paper and silk nylon tea bags.

What are the clear bags made from that you pack your tea inside boxes?

We never use any plastic. The clear bags are 100% plant-based biodegradable bags. They can be put in your home compost.

Why does my tea look slightly different from the last time I ordered this blend?

Sometimes the cut size of the herbs and spices used in our blends can vary slightly from time to time due to worldwide shortages from natural disasters. Smaller cuts will make the tea brew quicker and darker and it may make the volume of the tea look less than usual, although it will always weigh the same amount as before. We will always use the exact same formula.

Are all Bodhi teas safe to drink during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

We recommend you avoid PuriTEA which is a detoxing tea during pregnancy and breastfeeding as it can increase the elimination of toxins from the body.

Caffeine-free herbal teas are safe to drink during pregnancy and breastfeeding in moderation (1-2 daily). Our Bodhi ZesTEA is beneficial for easing morning sickness and SereniTEA and TranquiliTEA are helpful for easing stress and helping you sleep. ImmuniTEA and LongeviTEA is useful for supporting women’s immune health during pregnancy and beyond.

We have a tea specifically designed to increase milk production for breastfeeding mums, Mother’s milk.

It is a good idea to lower your caffeine intake when pregnant and breastfeeding, therefore it is recommended to limit yourself to only 1 black tea or 2 green teas daily. Black tea is found in our Black BeauTEA, HonesTEA and Masala Chai. You will find green tea in our ViridiTEA and CognitiviTEA.
