Announcement   We sell only whole leaf tea......the "tea" you normally find in tea bags is chopped into a dust grade. You cannot see the leaves and have no idea what it really is. Even when we offer our tea in bags ( advent calendar for example) we use the same whole leaf tea!

OF INTEREST TO LOCALS....Use coupon code PICKUP at checkout to avoid shipping charge. This code is for local pickup only and will not be honored for orders requiring shipping.
Please make sure you have your invoice with you when picking up.
PICKUPS....... are available at TIP TOP FRAMES in the Federal Point Plaza (near the Maxway and Primrose Cottage) on Carolina Beach. Pickup hours are Tues thru Friday 10.00 to 5.30, Saturday 9.30 to 12.00. Closed Sunday and Monday.
Pickup without receipt/invoice is not possible, sorry.
Please contact me via etsy if you have any questions.

CHANGES...
Some teas are being discontinued, or temporarily discontinued due to seasonal changes, non availability of ingredients etc. Please bear with us as we grow through this change and find alternative sources for organic and fair trade ingredients. If you can't find your favorite tea, please feel free to ask, it may have just "run out" for one reason or another.

Customers are understandably concerned about the use of natural flavors in processed foods because natural flavors used in conventional, non-organic products often contain synthetic substances, residues of toxic solvents, GMOs, MSG, and artificial preservatives.
However, all certified organic products containing natural flavors MUST use ORGANIC COMPLIANT NATURAL FLAVORS. The USDA BANS synthetic chemicals in these flavors, no matter how small an amount of the flavors are used. The USDA also REQUIRES these flavors are NOT produced using synthetic solvents and carrier systems or contain any artificial preservatives or GMOs (Section §205.605 of the National Organic Program Regulations). If a natural flavor in an organic product does not conform to organic certification guidelines, then the food product cannot receive organic certification, and should not be considered "organic".
I USE CERTIFIED ORGANIC FLAVORS where possible. They cost 10 times more than artificial flavors, but I believe it's money well invested!

My teas are hand blended and packaged in my inspected and licensed (North Carolina Department of Agriculture) kitchen.
I also prepare nuts,soy, wheat, eggs and other allergens in my kitchen, it is not an allergen free facility.

PLEASE read the full listing for any item you wish to purchase, especially if you have any allergies. All ingredients are clearly listed on the listing page, and on any and every package of tea I ship.

PLEASE READ shop policies before purchasing to avoid delays and misunderstandings.

THANK YOU for your patronage, I truly appreciate it.

About

Quality Organic Teas and Herbal Infusions, Hand Blended in Small Batches

Amitea was born out of necessity!
After moving to the USA from England, some years ago, I found it impossible to find a good quality, well brewed cup of tea, something available on any given high street in England.
So....I opened a tea room in New York in 2005 to share the love of tea with the locals, many of whom were from Britain and also missed a "proper cup of tea".

While it was a fun and educational time, I quickly realized it was the TEA BLENDING that interested me the most, and so Amitea was born.
Amitea was named because, to me, tea reflects friendship (the French word for friend is Ami). It is also a play on the word Amity which means peaceful, harmonious relations particularly amongst nations). What better way to promote world peace than over a cup of tea.

In 2015 Amitea became Amitea Organics as I pulled away from the main stream and began blending only organic versions of my teas and herbal blends. It is a reflection of my belief that life is too short to drink bad tea. Tea is a pause in the day, a moment in time, to be savored and enjoyed. While in this state of TEA BLISS, why would you infuse your soul with anything but the best?

I hand blend my teas and herbal blends from scratch, using recipes I have perfected over the years. I source only the finest organic teas and ingredients from around the world in order to create the finest quality teas and herbals infusion blends that I can.
My home kitchen is fully licensed and inspected by NC Dept. of Agriculture, and anyone selling food products on etsy should be proud to offer a copy of their license when asked.
If they refuse, think twice about buying. Ask me, I'll mail you a copy of mine!

It is my mission to help people recognize and learn the difference in quality between the wholesome organic loose leaf teas, spices, fruits and flowers used in my teas, compared to mass produced tea bags containing little more than dust. It's easy to see what you are drinking if you can see the leaf, the pieces of fruit, flowers and spices. The taste difference amazes people who are trying loose leaf teas for the first time......mission accomplished!
