Our blends are flavored with organic, GMO free ingredients such as bourbon vanilla beans and real pieces of Italian bergamot. In the rare case we use an extract, it is always pure and 100% traceable back to the named ingredient.
We independently test for pesticides and other hidden toxins. When you drink Golden Moon Tea you know that every sip is pure tea without any hidden chemicals.
All teabags use plastic to ensure the paper or hemp doesn’t dissolve. When you make tea this plasic releases chemicals. That’s why we will no longer use any teabags whatsoever.
Golden Moon Tea has 2 first place, and 6 total awards from the North American Tea Championship. Our commitment to providing the best tasting teas goes back to 1994 when the company was first founded.
Many materials will release chemicals when they come into contact with boiling water. We have extensively searched for the purest materials that will never leach any chemicals into your tea and refuse to offer anything that may leak chemicals.
Golden Moon Tea is the only loose tea company that refuses to use natural or artificial flavoring. All of our ingredients can be traced back to the farms they are grown on.
If friendship were a scent, it would be tea. I have this coconut green tea from Golden Moon, and whenever friends come to visit, they're always like, "Can we please have that tea?" It has the most amazing smell, so delicate that you barely notice the coconut in there.
I've traveled the world drinking great teas; from the mountains of Japan, the northern flatlands of China, to the southern tip of Argentina, and my favorite purveyor of amazing teas is Marcus at Golden Moon Tea. He's also the only guy that's gone back to the source on every tea he provides to insure that I'm not poisoning my body or my family with any chemicals, pesticides, toxins, GMO's, or manipulation during the process.
Golden Moon Tea is also a great example of the rise of small responsible businesses as passionate owners like Marcus reject the industrialization of the food industry and provide us with better options embedded with social, environmental, and ethical integrity.
It's all we drink at our house.
When tea leaves are left in their full, natural form, they do not dry out. Since the leaves do not dry out, they hold onto their essential oils and give the tea more flavor and aroma when brewed.
Instead of paying for the teabag packaging, why not just pay for the tea? Our loose teas cost as little as 11 cents per cup, which is cheaper than almost all major grocery store brands.
Our loose tea is eco friendly and is made 100% from plants. This means no strings, tags, or bags to harm the environment.
Don’t use your tea once and throw it out. Loose teas can be steeped (soaked in water) numerous times, which increases the flavor and reduces the price.
All you need to make a great cup of loose tea is a teapot. We offer many different pots with infusers that allow you to make a great cup of tea quickly. Just put some loose tea in a pot, add hot water, and strain. It's as easy as that.
The tea used in most bags consist of the dust and fannings left over from broken tea leaves resulting in a weaker, less flavorful cup of tea . Golden Moon Tea only uses large tea leaves that are produced in the orthodox method giving you a superior cup of tea.
Before I ran into Golden Moon Tea, I wasn't even a tea guy — I drank coffee. But ever since I've been exposed to this tea, I buy it exclusively from Golden Moon Tea. To give you an idea of how much trouble this whole exercise happens to be: I live in New Zealand, which means the tea has to be shipped at a much higher expense.
The reason why I continue to choose Marcus' tea is because I know he's fussy about the quality as well as where the tea comes from. To have great tasting tea and to know there are no chemicals or impurities makes my tea drinking experience something to look forward to, every single day.
I wish other companies went through the same trouble as Golden Moon Tea.
If there is such a thing as "love at first sip," I have it with Golden Moon Tea's Coconut Pouchong!
Wow, the second the aroma hits my nose and the clean refreshing taste hits my tongue, I feel like I'm in Heaven. The pouchong is smooth and full of buttery goodness and the coconut is authentic and delicious. The two flavors meld together perfectly, so much so that I brew this tea daily!
I love Golden Moon Tea's attention to detail and strong policy of using only the highest quality, pure loose leaf tea. I trust that Marcus is providing the very best with his products, which reinforces my decision to only ever order from Golden Moon Tea!
When I opened my bag of Golden Moon Tea's Masala Chai, I immediately noticed the sweet and spicy smell of clove, cinnamon, and cardamom. It was so warm and inviting that I couldn't wait to taste it! Once I did, I knew I was never going back to my usual Chai.
I consider myself somewhat of a Chai connoisseur and thought that I had already found the perfect one. Boy, was I wrong! Not only does Golden Moon's Chai have a rich aroma, but the flavor is a perfect blend of pure ingredients that dance in your mouth and delight your palate.
No matter how many pictures, reviews, and descriptions you look at, we know how difficult it is to really know if a tea is going to be tasty. With our “Pay It Forward” guarantee you no longer have to worry! If, for any reason, you decide that you do not like any of our teas, we will refund 100% of your money and you don’t even have to return the loose tea. This means no shipping labels, trips to the post office, and no risk in buying our teas!
However, there is a catch. We only request that you give the loose tea to another friend or tea drinker. We feel that even though you may not like a tea, there is a good chance that someone you know will. This way you not only get your money back, but you can also brighten someone else's day with delicious loose tea!
Here is a quick guide to how many cups of brewed tea each of our serving sizes makes.
