Once purchased, the most important thing for your tea is that it stays dry. Store in the air-tight tube in which ZO tea is supplied and it will stay fresh for up to 2 years. Each blend’s exact shelf life can be found on the bottom of your ZO tea packaging.
Do ZO tea blends cause a laxative aﬀect?
No, our tea blends do not contain Senna. The Senna leaves are very diﬃcult to digest and known for their laxative eﬀect which can be very unsettling for your body and rob you of all the important nutrients you need to stay fit and healthy. We oﬀer tea that can be enjoyed safely and consumed by everyone, completely free from the side eﬀects often associated with tea blends containing Senna leaves.
Do your blends contain caﬀeine?
Here at ZO tea we create tea blends for mind, body and soul, with that in mind we have developed blends with and without caﬀeine to suit your lifestyle and wellness goals. The green tea blends contain caﬀeine but in contrast to the caﬀeine in coﬀee, the caﬀeine in tea is released over a longer period of time rather than the hit of caﬀeine more often associated with the caﬀeine in coﬀee. Green tea has an invigorating eﬀect on your nervous system, but because of its tannins, it also has a calming eﬀect on the stomach and intestines. However, the Rooibos tea blends are caﬀeine free, perfect for anyone avoiding caﬀeine and can be enjoyed anytime of the day. Herbal tea blends are also caﬀeine free and oﬀer a great alternative due to their natural qualities and can also be enjoyed anytime of the day.
Will the tea aﬀect my contraceptive pill?
Any ingredient can unfortunately trigger diﬀerent reactions in diﬀerent people, side eﬀects on the eﬀectiveness of your oral contraceptive can never be completely eliminated, we therefore recommend you consult your doctor first. The same applies to the consumption of our tea during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Is ZO tea suitable for Nut/Gluten Allergy suﬀerers?
All our teas are very carefully sourced, and we never add anything to our blends that contain gluten. However, we cannot guarantee 100% that all our blends are completely free from traces of nuts, we always include all our ingredients on the label, nothing hidden! Just 100% organic premium ingredients.
