Press Release: Meet the Newest Category of Functional Teas

Top Tree Herbs Launches World’s First Line of Kratom-Based Functional Teas

Originally published May 4th, 2021 on 24/7 Press Releases:

Denver, Colorado, May 4th, 2021 –. Top Tree Herbs, the leading kratom tea bag company, announced today the launch of the world’s first line of kratom-based functional teas. Available in five unique herbal blends, these infused kratom teas bridge the gap between tea drinkers and the kratom community. This creates a new category of functional teas that are both delicious and effective.

A New Idea

Top Tree Herbs is a Colorado-based specialty tea company on a mission to make kratom tea simple and delicious. Top Tree was founded by two recent Columbia University graduates and long-time kratom consumers. The brand is focused on solving a long-time problem in the rapidly growing $2B US kratom market: consumers using the plant incorrectly! After successfully launching the world’s first line of kratom tea bags in 2020, the team quickly recognized that both established and new kratom tea drinkers could benefit from innovations that only Top Tree could deliver.

“We’re extremely proud to be able to share our new line of functional tea blends with the kratom community,” said Sam Weber, founder of Top Tree. “It isn’t reflected in the kratom products you see on shelf today, but people have been brewing kratom tea for hundreds of years; we wanted to create a product that respected this tradition. From partnering with a team of world-class tea sommeliers to using only premium, lab-tested, crushed-leaf kratom, we believe the launch of these blends represents a turning point in the kratom consumer market.”

Tea Blends

With five new flavor-infused kratom tea bag blends to choose from—each containing a unique blend of supporting herbs—consumers have a kratom-based functional tea for any occasion. Starting at $15 per pouch, there are two morning blends, an afternoon blend, and two evening blends:

  • Passion Fruit Maeng Da Morning Blend: white maeng da kratom leaf, sencha green tea, yerba mate, gingko, lemon myrtle
  • Peach Afternoon Bali Blend: green bali kratom leaf, gotu kola, ginseng, sage, red clover
  • Peach Maeng Da Evening Blend: red maeng da kratom leaf, chamomile, valerian root, lavender, rooibos, ginger
  • Cinnamon Apple Spice Kratom Tea: red maeng da kratom leaf, green tea, apple pieces, cinnamon, rose & safflower petals
  • Chocolate Mint Rooibos Kratom Tea: white maeng da kratom leaf, rooibos, peppermint leaves, calendula petals, cacao bean pieces

About Top Tree Herbs

Top Tree Herbs is the world’s leading kratom tea bag company. Their team is on a mission to make kratom tea convenient, effective, and delicious. As a brand founded to support the plant and consumer, Top Tree Herbs is working to establish a new path forward for kratom normalization. To them, this means crafting artisanal, herbal teas that customers truly love.

Recent Survey Initiative

By the same token of supporting the plant and consumer through normalization, Top Tree Herbs supports research. Chiefly, they have partnered with Dr. Oliver Grundmann of the University of Florida to conduct a population survey of kratom tea drinkers. All things considered, there are not many papers one can point to in order to learn how kratom tea is taken in the States. Even though there have been some quality studies regarding the alkaloids, basic behaviors and patterns of consumption are relatively unknown. Indeed, Dr. Grundmann has published a large survey regarding kratom consumers in the past. However, in the 2017 survey there was no control for serving size. For this reason, Dr. Grundmann reached out to Top Tree Herbs so as to standardize the serving size survey participants report using.
