Traditional Medicinals is “the leading seller of wellness tea in the U.S. and the pioneer of the wellness tea category in the U.S. and Canada.” And let me tell you, they’ve been doing this a long time folks! The company was founded in 1974 (which is also the year of my birth so I consider learning about this company part of my DESTINY!)

I was introduced to Traditional Medicinals about 20 years ago while shopping at a local health food store. By that time in my life, I had a few health scares. I started educating myself about homeopathic options and reading labels. I was really trying to buckle down on what I was putting into my body. I turned to herbal teas as an alternative to high fructose corn syrup and caffeinated drinks as well as over-the-counter medications.

What caught my eye about Traditional Medicinals was the detailed descriptions on the packaging with a concise overview of the herbs and detailed nutrition facts. I hadn’t noticed this type of education on other herbal tea varieties. With Traditional Medicinals, I could easily choose the tea based on my need or ailment at the time. The steeping directions were longer than other teas too. I found the flavors to be more intense than any herbal teas I had before. Most of all, my body felt better with every cup! I began to use less medications because these teas were so strong and effective.

The difference is Traditional Medicinals uses “pharmacopoeial grade herbs”. The company explains “a pharmacopoeia is an official book of quality standards for herbs, vitamins and drugs that ensures the right quality and the correct effect for their intended purpose.”
