How do I prepare the tea optimally?2022-06-27T21:25:33+02:00

It all depends on the variety. Therefore, you can find the info you need on the product page and the products themselves.

However, here are some basic tips:

The water should always be fresh. Optimally, the water has been filtered – but of course this is not a must. For temperatures, you can use the following table as a guide:

TypeWater temperature
Black tea100°
Green tea and white tea70°
Herbal, fruit and rooibos tea100°
Oolong85°C-95°C

Herbal, fruit and rooibos teas should steep for about 8 minutes, while for green and white teas and oolong, the brewing time may be reduced to about 2-5 minutes.

Tip: To influence the taste ideally for you, you can turn two screws. This is, on the one hand, the amount of tea you use for the infusion and, on the other hand, the infusion time. The more tea and the longer it brews, the more intense the flavor. However, you cannot extend the infusion time indefinitely, as green and black teas in particular will otherwise become bitter. Just take our preparation instructions for the individual items as a starting point to meet your taste better and better, bit by bit with small changes. Good luck!

Do I need a True Tea account to place an order?2023-05-21T23:14:38+02:00

No, you can order without an account. However, an account has many advantages. You can manage all your orders through our website and collect 2 TT Points per 1 € of sales with every purchase. You can then redeem them for discounts.

How will the goods be shipped?2022-01-28T22:38:41+01:00

We exclusively use the climate-neutral shipping service of DHL for shipping.

Can I also pick up the order?2022-04-26T13:05:56+02:00

Sorry, this is not possible at the moment!

How do you protect my data?2023-07-14T11:38:38+02:00

Why is your company called True Tea?2022-06-02T23:20:46+02:00

The name should be program. Because we want to provide you with truly good and honest sustainable products – without compromise.

We are so serious about this promise that we have given ourselves the appropriate name. We are True Tea!

Where does the tea come from?2021-12-26T01:12:57+01:00

The components of the blends as well as the teas themselves come from different countries. Regular on-site visits of our pre-supplier as well as the long-standing cooperation with plantations allow highest quality standards and ensure highest quality as well as environmentally and socially compatible cultivation. Of course, quality is also regularly checked in laboratory tests and by on-site audits. After all, trust is good, but control is better!

Is grass paper sustainable?2023-05-10T08:43:05+02:00

And how! Compared to normal paper made from virgin fibers, grass paper saves 99% water and 95% CO₂ in production. Grass paper is grown relatively regionally (compared to wood). This saves transport distances.

What does True Tea do for sustainability?2022-01-28T22:31:13+01:00

As you have probably noticed, sustainability is important to us. We think environmental protection should not be an extra, but standard. That is why we offer only environmentally friendly and plastic-free packaging. At no extra charge and without you having to do anything.

Shipping is also plastic free, we use paper/cardboard packaging material and corn starch packaging chips. In addition, the shipment comes to you climate neutral.

Our tea is available in either cans or bags. The cans are made of recyclable tinplate, and the bags are made of paper/cellulose and starch. The bags are easily garden compostable and of course plastic-free.

Last but not least, our website servers are 100% powered by green electricity. If you want to learn more about what we’re doing for the environment, check it out here.

Why does some packaging contain plastic?2023-11-12T16:46:56+01:00

For some articles you will find a note that the packaging contains a certain amount of plastic. We want to be absolutely honest and have therefore added this clear note:

But what is it all about? First of all, this plastic packaging does not come from us. True Tea will never add its own plastic packaging. If you see this notice, it means that the packaging from our supplier contains plastic.

This can be for various reasons, for example to protect the surface of the product or to prevent breakage. We are in constant contact with our suppliers in order to constantly reduce the proportion of plastic or even replace it completely with alternative materials.

We draw your attention to this fact with the notice shown above. We hope that this information will help you with your product selection.
