I recently spoke with the founder of Glaucus Research Group and was sickened about what I learned… especially because I have devoted my life to health-regenerating tea products that are pesticide-free.
However, perhaps like you, I even I used to drink a different “grocery store” tea for everything.
If I felt a cold coming I’d drink one tea… if I needed to go to the bathroom I’d drink another… I even had a tea that I used when I felt like I was retaining water.
But not all teas are created equal – in fact you may be drinking tea that is chock full of pesticides, fake ingredients, flavoring, GMO’s, and even fertility-sabotaging chemicals!
Read on to find out about what I learned after this eye-opening conversation…
Grocery Store Tea May Be VERY Toxic
So I recently sat down with the founder of Glaucus Research Group, who has done extensive third-party analysis on several tea companies.
To my horror, Glaucus found that 91 percent of one very popular tea – Celestial Seasonings- had pesticide residues exceeding U.S. limits.
Most tea isn’t even washed before it’s put into bags; meaning all those icky pesticides are disseminated from the tea leaves straight into your body when you drink it.
Moreover, when you boil the tea, some nasty chemicals can even become MORE potent than if you ingested them without boiling.
And boiling these chemicals is precisely what we do to drink tea!
Glaucus Research Group even found that Celestial Seasonings contained the nasty carcinogen propachlor in it’s child’s “Sleepytime Kids” tea!
High End Teas May Be Even WORSE Than Cheap, Grocery Store Teas…
But Celestial Seasonings isn’t exactly a ‘fancy’ tea. You may even expect that it isn’t the highest quality, correct?
But you would, however, expect that a high-end, high-priced tea like Teavana would be okay…
Sadly, you’d be grossly mistaken, even misled.
You see, Teavana has trained employess to claim that their tea is healthy, organic, and superior tea.
However, Glaucus found that one of their most popular teas contained 23 different pesticides!
In fact, 77% of the teas tested would fail E.U. pesticide import standards, and 62% contained a pesticide called endosulfan; which has been banned in 144 countries because it may harm fertility, or even babies in the womb!
What About Toxic Packaging?!
You may think that the quality of the product is consistent with it’s packaging…
Like those fancy, silky, pyramid-shaped tea bags that just look so darn appealing.
BEWARE: many of these bags aren’t made of silk… they’re made of *plastic*.
Trickster marketers brand these teas as being in ‘silky sachets’.
Sadly, this misleads customers into steeping polylactic acid into their teas, which is a corn-based material that is most likely made with GMO’s.
The (Very) Good News…
After speaking with the founder of Glaucus research and reading some of their third-party research, I was horrified.
I immediately went to a research facility and had Okuma’s Wu-Long tea re-tested for ANY pesticides or any chemicals that could be named.
As always – our tea is so pure that when tested for pesticides, chemicals, or any other non-tea compounds: we received a beautiful, clean bill of health (with ZERO named foreign elements in our tea).
Okuma’s Wu-Long tea is grown high in the mountaintops of China’s Anxi Province.
Without steeping cancer-causing chemicals into your body… Wu-Long has the power to:
Reduce chronic bodily conditions such as heart disease and inflammatory disorders
