Because some customers have asked me if I have made changes in the tea (which I haven’t), it occurs to me that a few months ago I changed over from the purification system that I have for the water to another system which has three filtration processes rather than one. The TEA is not filtered, but the water is before I make it into tea. I find the taste smoother. If you have noticed a difference, that is likely the reason. If you have questions, do not hesitate to get in touch..
