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, wild-crafted, 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.
Senna (Senna alexandrina) was used for centuries before being introduced into trade in Europe in the 9th century. Named after the port in Alexandria, Egypt, senna was transported to Europe and Asia, where it became a mainstay in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese practices. Senna is one of the most commonly consumed herbs to help promote regularity and for relief of occasional constipation (not intended to be used to treat chronic constipation).
Alvita Senna Tea is made with premium-quality, organic senna leaves, and has a mild, bitter flavor.
Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz of boiling water. Cover and steep for 7 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove. (For a stronger tea, steep for an additional 3-4 minutes.)
