Alvita Caffeine Free Tea Horsetail Grass -- 24 Tea Bags

Horsetail Grass Tea Bags. Caffeine Free. Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is among the oldest of all plants having dominated the plant world for 100 million years. In ancient times it was a giant fern-like tree. The twenty species surviving today are miniature versions of their ancestors. Horsetail is known for its abrasive texture. In fact Horsetail can be used to sand wood or scour and shine metal. This remarkable quality is due to its high silica content. Silica a vital element of health is found in all tissues and organs of the body including the skin hair nails teeth bones tendons and ligaments. Horsetail yields a deep green color when used for dying fabric. The cut stems also make an interesting addition to herb and flower arrangements. For more than 75 years long before it became fashionable Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. Alvita travels to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs the best growers the most precious sources. Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name.

Good tea flimsy bags
 April 12, 2013
"I love this tea but I do not particularly care for the bags. When I opened the box and the large pouch the actually herb particle were floating around outside the mini tea pouches. I have bought other teas from this brand in the store and had the same experience. Plus if you are too rough pulling them apart the bags are easy to rip. So if that bothers you then stay away. The flavor was not compromised though:)"

Tips on preparing an infusion of this nice tea...
 January 31, 2012
"To get the most from horsetail/oatstraw tea it needs to be infused at a rolling boil for at least 10 minutes-up to an hour as it requires high heat to extract the silica. (keep an eye on it as it will boil over easily-keep an eye on water level and add if needed-keep a lid on it to reduce evaporation.) It is also known as Oatstraw. I wish Vitacost offered it in looseleaf form as well as tea bags!"

Good buy but bags tear
 February 19, 2010
"My only complaint about this product is the bags come two together w/o a tear line. You need to cut them apart with a scissors or else they tear open. The taste is pretty mild so it just occurred to me that you could use both tea bags per cup, but then it ends up not being such a great deal afterall."
