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 code has nine or ten characters, with the last number representing the year.  If the last number is 2, for example, the product was manufactured in 2012.  If it is 3, the year of production was 2013; if it is 4, the year of production was 2014. This code can also be found on the individual foil teabags, which is a printed number.

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.
