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.
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), whose genus name is appropriately derived from the Greek words meaning "sweet root", is used worldwide as a flavoring for foods, beverages and assorted confections. However, as early as the third century B.C., herbalists valued the beneficial properties licorice root had to offer, traditionally using the herb to support upper respiratory health.
Alvita Licorice Tea is made with premium-quality, organic licorice root, and exudes the delightfully sweet flavor and aroma most people associate with black licorice.
Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz of boiling water. Cover and steep for 15 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove.
