Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Pine Needles Tea comes from the vast and wild forests of Romania. It is here that producers harvest and dry the young, green leaves before the Herbal Tea arrives at our Kent-based factory.
We pack it fresh to order, thereby ensuring quality and consistency when it’s time for you to brew it. And when you do so, you can expect nothing but delicious tastes and extraordinary health benefits.
Pine Needle Tea Facts and Considerations
Most people are familiar with the pine tree. However, if you’re wondering, “Are all Pine Needles safe for Tea?”, the answer is no. Our infusion is the product of the White Pine, which is not only safe but also brimming with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Other species may contain toxins that cause adverse side effects. Your best bet, then, is to err on the side of caution and buy Pine Needle Tea from us. Now that’s out of the way, we can concentrate on talking about its potential. Eastern White Pines (Pinus strobus) grow to heights of up to 55 metres (180 feet).
Their foliage consist of fine, flexible green needle-like leaves. These leaves can grow five to a bundle, forming large clusters that resemble giant fan brushes; they’re what we use in the making of this beverage.
Pine Needle Tea Taste
Drinking White Pine Needles Herbal Tea dates back centuries, particularly among the indigenous peoples of North America. While many of them consumed it because of its medicinal qualities, they almost certainly liked its flavour, too.
But what, exactly, does it taste like? You can expect a distinctly fresh and minty aroma followed by bold herbaceous notes and a delectably sweet finish.
Is There Caffeine in Pine Needle Tea?
Caffeine is a stimulating chemical compound that exists in around sixty plants. This includes Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, Coffea (Coffee), Theobroma cacao (chocolate) and Ilex Paraguariensis (Yerba Mate).
Pine Needles Tea, however, does not belong to the caffeinated family. It is indeed 100% void of it, making it an excellent choice if you need to cut down your intake.

Pine Needle Tea Health Benefits
Human oxidation is a natural process in the body. Oxidative stress, on the other hand, is an imbalance of free radical activity and antioxidant activity, one that contributes to numerous chronic conditions.
There is no easy, “fix-all” solution to such a process. However, by drinking Pine Needles Tea regularly, you are, at the very least, reducing the risks of developing a multitude of ailments.
Vitamin C in Pine Needle Tea
Perhaps most noteworthy, though, is that Pine Needle Tea’s Vitamin C levels are remarkably significant. Vitamin C, as most will know already, plays a sizable role in boosting immunity.
It can also offer relief from minor respiratory conditions, lower blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. Additionally, Pine Needle Tea Benefits your eyesight due to the abundance in Vitamin A!
