|Each tea bag also contains over 40% of the recommended daily intake of B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, C and zinc, all derived from nutrient rich herbs, fruits and botanicals. It’s a boost of 100% natural vitamins and minerals in your cup of tea.
The nutrients in Eloments are extracted, along with co-nutrients and co-factors from herbs, fruits and other botanicals using a water extraction method.

|Is Eloments natural?
Absolutely. The vitamins and minerals contained in Eloments are 100% natural. They are extracted from fruits, vegetables and other botanicals using a water extraction method.
|Can you taste the vitamins and minerals in the tea?
Because our vitamins come from natural fruit and herbal extracts, they tend not to give the intense flavour that some synthetic vitamins can have. You may notice an earthier taste to some of our teas, but our brews have been carefully blended to be absolutely delicious.
|Do Eloments tea bags contain plastic?
Heck no! We make sure we source tea bag paper that is completely free of polyproplene plastic (or any kind of plastic, for that matter).
|Are your teas free of things like gluten and dairy?
Our teas are gluten, dairy, GMO, nut, soy and sugar free.
|Are your teas vegan?
Eloments is 100% vegan. This is actually not a silly question, as although you would assume tea would be vegan, some teas (because of the flavours they add) are not vegan.
|Does boiling water affect the vitamins in Eloments?
Great question! Our independent lab testing showed that steeping the vitamins in boiling water actually extracts more of the nutrients than room temperature water, that’s why we recommend brewing your tea for 5 minutes. Notice some powder on the inside of your tea envelope? That’s our beautiful fruit and herbal extracts! Tip these into your cup as well to get all the goodness
|Is there any sugar in your tea?
|Why are there no vitamins listed in your ingredients?
Unlike many supplements, we’re not adding lab-made synthetic vitamins. Instead we blend nutrient-rich extracts from organic herbs and fruits, such as the lemon extract and guava extract you see in our ingredients.
|Is all your packaging recyclable?
Not quite, all of the packaging is plastic free except the envelope the tea bags come in (which has 20% plastic). We are working on this however and are hoping to start using a new wrapper that is plastic-free soon.
|I’m concerned that your tea bags are individually wrapped, doesn’t this affect our environment negatively?
Thank you for your concern for the environment!
We spent two years in development making sure we weren’t using anything artificial in our tea and trying to make our packaging as sustainable as possible: we use vegetable ink in our printing, post-consumer recycled cardboard for our boxes and our cartons, and our tea bags are plastic free so they’re fully compostable.
The tea bag wrapper was the big sticking point for us – there is no biodegradable envelope that exists today to keep our vitamins fresh, so we had to make the really hard decision between food waste (by reducing the shelf life) or wrappers. We’re really excited that a biodegradable option is currently being trialled, and as soon as we get the results we’ll switch over asap.
