The Alvita Story...
In 1922, a new era for tea consumption began in America. The herb alfalfa, long known for its beneficial nutrients, was packaged in tea bags and sold to an emerging health food market. This product became known as Alvita and set the standard for future herbal teas. Today, Alvita represents more than forty single-ingredient teas, each one uniquely distinct, just like the individuals who drink them.
Alvita chooses only the highest quality organic, wild-crafted, or cultivated botanicals, perfectly prepared to provide you with the best Mother Nature has to offer. Historical and scientific literature is painstakingly studied to ensure that the correct traditional plant and most appropriate servings are used, delivering premium flavor and quality.
Herbs are gifts from the earth. Alvita takes its stewardship seriously by offering carefully harvested teas in earth-friendly packaging. Our beautifully illustrated boxes are made using recycled paperboard and our English, pillow style tea bags are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. You won't find a better product, with a cleaner package... anywhere.
Alvita... brewed with confidence, steeped in tradition.
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) is also commonly known as "bearberry" because its vibrant red and pink fruit is a favorite food for bears.
The leaves of the uva ursi shrub have been part of traditional folk use dating as far back as the 2nd century. Different cultures have made use of this beneficial herb, which has been traditionally used to support urinary tract health.
Alvita Uva Ursi Tea is made with premium-quality, organic uva ursi leaves, and possesses a rich honey color and distinct earthy flavor and aroma.
