The Alvita Story...
In 1922, a new era for tea consumption began in America. The herb alfalfa, long known for its beneficial nutrients, was packaged in tea bags and sold to an emerging health food market. This product became known as Alvita and set the standard for future herbal teas. Today, Alvita represents more than forty single-ingredient teas, each one uniquely distinct, just like the individuals who drink them.
Alvita chooses only the highest quality organic, wildcrafted, or cultivated botanicals, perfectly prepared to provide you with the best Mother Nature has to offer. Historical and scientific literature is painstakingly studied to ensure that the correct traditional plant and most appropriate servings are used, delivering premium flavor and quality.
Herbs are gifts from the earth. Alvita takes its stewardship seriously by offering carefully harvested teas in earth-friendly packaging. Our beautifully illustrated boxes are made using recycled paperboard and our English, pillow style tea bags are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. You won't find a better product, with a cleaner package... anywhere.
Alvita... brewed with confidence, steeped in tradition.
The virtues of goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) were first introduced to European settlers by the Iroquois and other Native American tribes, who traditionally used the root of the herb as a clothing dye as well as to support a healthy digestive tract.
Alvita Goldenseal Tea is made with premium-quality, organic goldenseal root, and produces a vibrant yellow-orange color with a mildly bitter flavor and distinct aroma.
Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz of boiling water. Cover and steep for 5 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove.
Directions for use:
We recommend 3 cups daily.

I would recommend it to anyone suffering from respiratory tract infections or gastrointestinal conditions.
I had no expectations of the tea, this is my first tea bought from Alvita's and I have to say, I'm very pleased with it. I was having a minor flu and drank a cup of the goldenseal tea - it was comforting for my throat. The smell is great, I like the fact that it's caffeine-free too. Will definitely purchase again.
