My son who is allergic to peanuts and hazelnuts is interested in Loose herbal or floral tea. Is there a safe brand or company I can buy from?


Why loose leaf teas?

We buy these but they are all in tea bags:
Traditional Medicinals
ANA peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, potato, sorghum


My son loves to make tea out of roses and herbs. I don't know why he has been asking about it.

I bought some but it is from China. Has anyone used teabloom flowering tea?

I will look into NuMi and traditional medical (any certain ones you like)?

He will be studying horticulture starting in the fall. Always wants to try new things!


I like peppermint. Very simple. Peppermint and honey seems to be a recent favourite. When we don't have mint leaves from the garden I opt for tea bags from either company. We have some of their more medicinal teas for stress and colds as well. I don't have sophisticated tastes like someone in horticulture would. That is a really fascinating field of study.

I haven't used loose tea with my daughter (who has the allergies) and I'm reluctant to let her try tea from Asian markets or the blooming teas. She has had Harney and Sons and Twinings teas. I think she's also had Celestial Seasonings.

We have a bunch of different teas, mostly in tea bags, in this house...I've only run across one so far that actually contained anything and it's Dream by Tazo and it has "natural almond flavoring" which is probably from a peach pit.  My DS is not allergic to almonds.

In terms of loose leaf...we have a local company that makes amazing tea, I love their Cranberry Apple Ginger...but I don't know where they make the tea and they do have a cafe in which they serve nuts but it's a small enough operation that I would think they could answer any questions that you might have.  It's called White Heron Tea https://www.whiteherontea.com/tea/organic-herbal-tea-decaf/
