Blink FAQs

Why is it called Blink Tea?

Most tea companies sell teas by type, which can be confusing for anyone who’s not a tea expert. Blink Tea turns this approach on its side, presenting full ranges of premium organic teas and herbals in each of Bold, Medium and Mild caffeine verticals. We remove the guesswork between you and a memorable tea experience and connect you to the tea you want in a Blink!

Type Caffeine
Bold +45mg caffeine
Medium 35-45mg caffeine
Mild 0-35mg caffeine

All measurements are per 250ml / 8oz serving

Who drinks Blink Tea?

Busy, active people enjoy Blink Tea. You seek healthy and exotic tastes and options to coffee and soda that complement your on-the-go lifestyle. You value quality, authenticity and sustainability. Your enjoyment makes a positive contribution to those who create our teas and herbals for you.

What kind of teas and herbals do you sell?

Blink Tea specializes in premium, organic teas and herbals in loose-leaf and pyramid formats that consider such attributes as region, elevation and harvest date. Like the wine or coffee industry, cultivar and terroir are used in determining taste and aroma of the tea. Many of our teas are direct trade, shortening the distance between the tea growers and your cup.

What are the health benefits of Blink Teas?

Tea is hydrating and calorie free unless you add milk, sugar or other sweeteners. Flavonoids, naturally found in tea, can have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Teas and herbals, or tisanes, are part of a healthy lifestyle.

How much caffeine is there in your teas?

While caffeine is naturally-occurring to all tea leaves, the amount of caffeine in tea is far less than in coffee. Also, caffeine in tea is released over a longer period of time than coffee or soda – no spikes or crashes. Our herbal blends have no caffeine.

Here is a general caffeine guide per tea type found in our Bold, Medium and Mild categories, based on a 250ml / 8 oz cup:

Type Caffeine
White Tea 30mg
Green Tea 35mg
Oolong Tea 40mg
Black Tea 45mg
Matcha 60mg
Herbal Tea 0mg

A general steeping guide:

Type Amount Temp Time
White Tea 2.5g / 1tsp 75°C / 170°F 4–5 min
Green Tea 2.5g / 1tsp 75°C / 170°F 1–3 min

For Matcha add 1 ounce of water and whisk to remove lumps. Top up with desired amount of hot water or steamed milk and whisk to create foam.

Make tea measuring easy with a loose leaf or matcha scoop.

Can tea be re-steeped?

High quality white, green and oolong teas can offer 2 – 3 steepings, whereas black teas and herbals lose most of their potency after a first steep. Add 1 – 2 minutes for each new steep and use leaves only for the day. By the way, tea leaves make great compost!

Are there any allergens in Blink Tea?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that our teas come from certified allergen-free facilities or have come into contact with allergens in their manufacture or anywhere in the supply process.

Are your teas gluten-free?

While teas are classified as a gluten-free product, please be aware that they do not come from a certified gluten-free facility.

How long does tea stay fresh and how should it be stored?

We suggest consuming Blink Teas and Herbals within two years of purchase to take advantage of their winning taste and aroma. Our resealable stand-up pouches and pyramid box inserts help to keep products fresh, but we recommend keeping tea in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal and Apple Pay.
