We created Downybird because we believe you deserve a tea that delivers more. A tea with more flavor, more transparency and better ingredients. Each of our custom blends have been expertly crafted and rigorously taste-tested. The goal was not just to craft teas that taste delicious (which we proudly did), but to create teas that inspire joy and comfort. All because we believe tea should be memorable, just like you.
✓ Full flavor
We are committed to making the most delicious flavorful tea
That’s why we use only the freshest ingredients and don’t pre-bag our tea. That means we don’t break down our ingredients to fit into a small pouch or use low-quality leftover tea ‘dust’ to fill pouches which often results in flavorless bitter tea. Instead, we use high quality, whole ingredients packed with rich oils that result in full authentic flavor.
✓ USDA Certified Organic
We believe that what you put into your body matters.
Especially for a product such as tea where you are directly steeping ingredients into your beverage. It's vital those ingredients are clean, safe and healthy. The USDA organic certification program helps ensure this. Our products have been certified as free from any substance on the USDA's prohibited list. This includes pesticides, a long list of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers, all of which can be found on the USDA's official website. Yes, this costs us more time and energy. Yes, this costs us more money. But when viewing the tradeoff between costs and health, from our perspective it isn't even a question. We are proud to be 100% USDA certified organic.
✓ Ingredient transparency
We are proud to print the ingredients of all our teas directly on the front of the pouch where they are easy to read.
This is because we believe the best cup of tea is made from a perfectly balanced blend of names you can pronounce. That means no additives, no coloring, no GMOs, no surprises. We simply let our ingredients speak for themselves through the incredible flavors they bring to each cup.
