Infused CBD Tea
3 oz. Loose Leaf Tea – 180 mg CBD per tea cannister
We’ve partnered with local tea purveyors to provide three loose leaf CBD-infused tea lines. Like with our coffee, the hemp extract used in our teas is full-spectrum and derived from Certified Organic hemp flower grown locally in Colorado.
Black Blend Tea:
Our black tea is based off of an Irish Breakfast tea recipe combining two hearty black teas from Sri Lanka and India to get your morning off to a bright start. We begin with a base of mellow Ceylon Orange Pekoe tea from high in the mountains of Sri Lanka. The Ceylon Dimbula we use consists of long leaves with few tips – giving the tea light but brisk citrus notes with a clean, bright aroma.
We blend our Ceylon with an Assam tea from India. The larger leaves from lower elevation bring on a smooth biscuit mouthfeel and add a malty underscore to the flavor with hints of walnut on the finish.
This tea is caffeinated.
Citron Green Tea:
Our Citron Green Tea begins high in the hills on the Yunnan region of China. This region is famous for growing a wide variety of teas. Our steamed green tea has a flavor profile similar to Sencha, but is slightly more floral and less earthy.
We then blend our tea with organic lemon zest and orange peel to add citrus notes that brighten as the cup cools. This mildly sweet, herbaceous blend makes a lovely, hot cup, but is also served nicely over ice for those hot, summer days!
This tea is lightly caffeinated.
Hibiscus Berry Herbal Tea:
This herbal tea is comprised entirely of flowers and berries making it completely caffeine-free. Beginning with a base of hibiscus petals and rose hips, this tea has a very floral and refreshing nose. Next, we add some cranberries and blackberries to give the tea a tart base. Dried strawberries are then blended to add a delicate sweetness.
To round out the tea, we add in currants providing subtle earth tones and a tannic acid structure. Completing the profile is the addition of rare British bilberries.
This herbal tea contains no caffeine.

How do we infuse? With essentially no oils to work with when infusing tea, we infuse some of the different components of the total dissolved solids (TDS) that start in the leaf and end up in your cup. With tea having a more delicate flavor profile than coffee, the infusion process is much more delicate as well. We bind our CBD to the flavonoids, amino acids, and simple carbohydrates like sugars that are expressed during steeping. Our teas are infused at a 2:1 ratio of milligrams of CBD to grams of loose leaf tea for easy measuring.
