The American Royal Tea Commitment

American Royal Tea believes in promoting and using only 100% organic, non-GMO herbs, spices, roots and flowers, and in supporting organic farmers and workers in the United States for sourcing and producing its high quality tisanes. Locally and nationally sourced ingredients are used where available.

Sustainability and Commitment to the Environment

American Royal Tea is committed to the environment and makes all efforts to reduce consumer waste in packaging, mailing and shipping. 

One of the things that make American Royal Tea different is the packaging. Premium loose leaf teas and tisanes are packaged in reusable tea tins or 90% post-consumer recycled zip top kraft  pouches.


Starting March 1, 2017, American Royal Tea will discontinue tea tins as a part of standard packaging. Tea tins in 2 ounces, 4 ounces, and 8 ounces sizes will be made available for purchase separately.

Zip top pouches in 2 ounces and 4 ounces, and tie top kraft paper coffee bags for 8 ounces and 16 ounces will remain in inventory.

Two-part cardboard cylinders will be made available on selected items.

4 ounce tea tin caddies will be made available for purchase separately.

New Inventory

Now available are standard 4 ounce tin tea caddies. Tin tea caddies are available for an extra fee.

2-Piece Paper Canisters

2 ounce two-piece paper canisters are also available to hold 1 ounce samples, or 2 ounces of tea. (Limited supply.)

Gift wrapping

Gift wrapping is available for selected items.

Washi Tape

Washi tape is often used for gift wrapping adornment.


What is Washi Tape

To put it simply, washi tape is a high quality masking tape made of rice paper. Rice paper is a bit of a troublesome term in and of itself but basically rice paper isn't made of rice but usually out of other short, strong plant fibres. (Omiyage).

American Royal Tea uses environmentally-friendly Washi tape for product packaging and tea tin closure. Washi tape is non-toxic and safe.


Grosgrain Ribbon

"Grosgrain" is commonly used to refer to a heavy, stiff ribbon of silk or nylon woven via taffeta weave using a heavy weft which results in distinct transverse ribs.  Historically grosgrain was made from wool, silk, or a combination of fibers such as silk and wool or silk and mohair. (Wikipedia)

American Royal Tea uses quality grosgrain ribbon in packaging.

If you selected a tea tin,American Royal Tea provides a sturdy, reusable, round tin to store your tea. Tea tins come in silver or gold, depending on availability. Tins are available in 2, 4, and 8 ounce sizes.

For gift-wrapping, American Royal Tea prepares all boxed items cushioned within black tissue paper.
