Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I drink Sama tea?
What makes Sama's teas so special? In short, it's how our unique blends of adaptogens and Ayurvedic botanicals work together to help bring your mind, body and heart into balance. Adaptogens are plants that help you recover balance and resist stressors, ultimately leading to a more healthier you! These botanicals have long been a part of Ayurvedic practices and are entwined with traditional Hindu healing. At Sama, we believe that by combining modern adaptogenic ingredients with Ayurvedic traditional wisdom, we can create tea blends that help you feel your best from the inside out.
Is Sama tea USDA Organic?
We wouldn't have it any other way! Yes, all of Sama's teas are USDA Organic.
Is Sama Gluten Free?
Yep! Our teas are free of gluten (and instead are full of tasty adaptogens & botanicals).
Are your tea sachets plastic free?
Sama's tea sachets are made from a plant-based material called PLA and are designed to be compostable! We also use a cotton string and printed paper tag, no metal staples here!
Are Sama teas free of GMOs?
Yes! All Sama teas are GMO free.
Is Sama Fair Trade Certified?
Sama has opted not to become Fair Trade certified. Instead, we have set our own direct trade standards. We work directly with farmers to source the highest quality ingredients possible and provide financial security to the families who grow our teas. As a standard, we pay our farmers 5-10x the commodity prices, ensuring that they are treated fairly and equitably.
Are Sama teas caffeinated?
Some of them are caffeinated, others are caffeine-free! You can always check the caffeine level of each tea blend on it's dedicated product page. As a quick reference, our Awaken & Energize and Protect & Support blends are Caffeinated while our Calm & Relax and Focus & Clarity are Caffeine-Free!
Is Sama certified Kosher?
Yes! Sama tea is proudly certified as Kosher.
What are adaptogens? How do they work?
Adaptogens are botanicals that help your body fight different types of stress. These herbs and spices rebalance your mind, body, and heart by helping your nervous system re-find homeostasis.
Where can I find a complete list of ingredients?
You can find a complete list of ingredients on each blend's page
How long do Sama's teas stay fresh?
Luckily, dried teas and botanicals do not "go bad"! However, we recommend drinking your Sama tea within 4 months of opening to ensure that the aroma and taste do not lose complexity.
I have an exclusive Sama mug! Is it microwave and dishwasher safe?
Sama's exclusive merch mug is dishwasher safe, however we do recommend that you hand wash and dry to avoid water spots. The mug IS NOT microwave safe. Metalized items should never be microwaved, and because the mug has gold electroplating it is not microwave safe.
