We at Voće take pride in doing things the right way. From how we select our ingredients to the composition of our packaging, we put a lot of thought into our teas, which we believe makes them a vastly superior product. Here are some of the highlights:
Real fruit you can see and taste. Would you eat a pizza that was made with cheese flavoring but contained no real cheese? Disgusting, right? So, why would you drink teas that get their taste from fruit flavorings, rather than real fruit? Our teas are visibly different from the others. They contain whole fruit that looks as good as it tastes. When we say our tea has lemon in it, that's exactly what we mean—they include real California lemons and only real lemons. Some other tea companies have started to add larger pieces of fruit to their teas for cosmetic reasons, but don't be fooled! If you read the fine print, you'll see they invariably contain flavorings, but trust us, it's not the same thing.
Made with organic fruits and spices. All of the ingredients that go into our teas are certified organic. High quality ingredients give our teas a leg up on the competition. No added sugar, flavorings, colorings, or preservatives. We feel strongly that additives in tea are bad for consumers and bad for the environment. They distort the genuine appearance and taste of the tea, and they are most often used to compensate for poor quality ingredients. With Voće, you'll get no junk and no jackassery. Pure flavor that is sweet, not bitter. High quality fruit produces long-lasting flavor without the chemical aftertaste of so many other teas. We tell you to leave the bag in after steeping your tea because Voće gets better, not bitter! Responsibly sourced organic ingredients, primarily from the Americas. We don't trust Chinese fruit. We try to get as many of our ingredients from the USA as we can, and if we can't get it from here, we try to get it from as nearby as possible. Biodegradable corn fiber mesh teabags and packaging. Our teabags are made from PLA and can be composted in commercial composting systems; our wrappers are made from sustainably harvested wood pulp and are certified compostable in municipal systems and backyard bins. Our cardboard and PET boxes are also recyclable, and we're more than happy to ship without external packaging. Naturally caffeine free. A good choice for those long days at the office, or when you're trying to avoid caffeine.
