We would like to assure you that there is no health or expiration concerns with our teas. You can identify the year that the product was manufactured by the production code located on the bottom of the box, usually appearing under the bar code. The number also is printed on each individual teabag. This production code will be nine characters, with the last number representing the year. If the last number is a 9, the product was manufactured in 2009. If it is a 0, the year of production is 2010, a 1 is 2011 etc. Tea used after Best By Date, is perfectly safe to consume.
We would also like to share with you, that we now print a Best By Date, on the boxes, to make it easier to determine when the tea was produced.
