Why Did Wild Zora start doing teas?
Wild Zora has focused on To-Go products throughout all of our product lines: Meat and Veggie Bars, Paleo Meals To Go, and now Organic Instant Real Tea! The convenience of having a fresh, real cup of tea has never been easier. With regular tea, you need to boil water, steep the tea bag for 2-5 minutes, and wait for the water to cool enough to be drinkable. Then, after all that, you have a soggy tea packet to throw away. This whole process can take up to 10 minutes! If you’re on a hike or on the go, good luck dealing with all that! This was our motivation for coming out with our new Instant Organic Real Teas. Having an instant real cup of tea has never been easier. It is a 3 second process. Pour your tea into a cup and pour your hot water in a cup. That’s it! Our teas pair perfectly with any of our meals, especially our breakfast meals.
What is different about Wild Zora tea?
Other instant teas use processes such as high heat spray dehydration, freeze drying, micronization, or high-pressure evaporation. All of these methods either remove flavor, vitamins, minerals, or simply create a subpar cup of tea. Certain methods such as high-pressure evaporation can leave you with a bitter tasting tea, and micronization can strip the tea of all its benefits!
Wild Zora Instant Organic Real Tea is made using a cold steep technology. It is similar to the cold brew coffee method. Cold brew coffee is a smoother, less acidic, and more flavorful cup of coffee, without the slight bitterness that comes along with the hot brew method. The same is true about our cold steep tea. Nothing is worse than an over-brewed or under-brewed cup of tea! Over-brewed tea can be bitter, and you might as well have warm water if your tea is under brewed. Our tea is perfect every time. The cold steep process works like this: premium, organic, tea leaves are left to steep for 8 hours in room temperature water, then we pressure-extract all the flavor and essence from the batch. The cold brew tea is then vacuum dehydrated in order to concentrate the tea into the crystals that are then ready to package!
The cold steep method for instant tea keeps vitamins, minerals, and flavor completely intact. The unique cold steep process allows us to use no preservatives or additives of any kind. It really is an instant organic REAL tea!
What is Wild Zora Tea made of?
Our organic tea leaves are sourced from small tea plantations in Asia. The leaves are hand selected and chosen for quality. These smaller farms are in more remote locations where they are far from pollution and exposure to contaminants. Our teas are the highest quality possible, period. No sugar, no preservatives, and no additives of any kind. Our English Breakfast Tea contains only Organic Black Tea. Our Mango Green Tea contains only Organic Green Tea and Mango. This is the important difference, only real tea and only pure ingredients.
