Autour du thé

  1. Respect brewing times and temperatures

2.  Good water is essential for making a good tea
  • Use spring water or, if not, filter tap water.
  • Do not let the water boil because oxygen will evaporate and fade the taste of tea.

About quality

Tea is a processed agricultural product. Their organoleptic properties (color, texture, flavor, volume) can vary from one crop to another, or even from one batch to another. The lots are carefully selected to offer you the best experience and ensure their relative consistency. This being the case, each new batch is unique and there will inevitably be more or less perceptible differences according to the palates. It is the same with scented and flavored teas, where the ingredients too can have more or less noticeable nuances. However, the qualitative requirement is always the same and L'AUTRE THE can not be held responsible for any variations.

The Best before date (DLUO) indicates the period of optimal use of the products, but that does not mean that they are out of date. This is the date beyond which the organoleptic (color, texture, flavor) and nutritional qualities of the products are no longer guaranteed by the brand.

If your bag has been kept in good conditions (protected from heat and moisture, away from odorous substances (tobacco, coffee, spices, etc.) and in a properly closed container), the product that is out of date is not a health hazard. While the freshness is no longer the same, but this product can still be consumed with the same pleasure without any risk.

All our natural products of origin (teas, rooibos and honeybush, herbal teas), as well as scented and flavored preserve up to 36 months. Pu'er teas are the only teas that get better over time, like wines, so there's no deadline for maximum durability.

It is strongly recommended to keep your teas and herbal teas in optimal conditions so that you can always taste them with the same pleasure:

  • Keep them away from heat, light, and moisture.
  • Keep them away from odorous substances (tobacco, coffee, spices, etc.).
  • Keep them in their original, properly closed container or in a box designed for this purpose.

In most cases, we use high quality teas from small gardens, in direct trade. Thus, thanks to the direct trade, we support small producers, while guaranteeing a certain stability in the quality of our products. The tea producers we work with live mainly in Southeast Asia (China, India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, etc.), rooibos comes from South Africa.

Flavored and flavored blends are devised by Arnaud Dhenin, who oversees their development in a certified laboratory.

About our teas

In traditional Chinese medicine, tea is contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. However, when consumed in reasonable amounts and as part of a balanced diet, our teas can be consumed as a hot drink during a period of pregnancy and lactation.
It is also known that tea limits the absorption of iron, so it is not advisable to drink tea in case of anemia.

If in doubt, always seek medical advice.

For us, the addition of natural flavors is not intended to cover the flavors of tea or plants, but rather to give them new subtleties, to highlight their organoleptic richness.

Tea or plants are obviously the main aromatic ingredients. Thus, each recipe is meticulously prepared, respecting the fineness of the plants used. The choice of ingredients is essential in the development of our recipes, so we make sure to use only the best. We favor natural certified organic flavors, fruits, spices, flowers selected and chosen for their origin and quality. Flavors are framed by specific legislation. This is the European Regulation 1334/2008 which has been in force since January 2011.

They are specified with an asterisk on tea if they contain it, they are very rare in tea except teas that contain nuts or milk. You can find milk in caramel.

In the tea leaf there is:

  • Water: ¾ water for ¼ dry matter
  • Tannins or polyphenols: they give the frame, astringency, bitterness or velvety infusion. The main tannins are epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), catechin and quercetin, all powerful antioxidants.
  • Alkaloids such as theine that gives bitterness, stimulates the central nervous system and helps to destroy fat.
  • Note: caffeine and theine are one and the same molecule
  • Amino acids (proteins) including theanine, relaxing and energizing
  • Vitamins including vitamins C, A, B1, B2, B6, B9, E and K
  • Minerals: fluorine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese,
  • Aromas
  • Chlorophylls that give color
  • Carbohydrates and lipids in small quantities

Theine, tannin and theanine are all molecules present in tea. However, they have specific peculiarities.

For the same type of tea, it is difficult to prioritize the content of theine and tannin. Several factors will have a role on their presence in tea:

  • the period and year of harvest
  • the place of the leaf on the tree
  • the original altitude of the tea plants
  • the method of manufacture

The consumables we use to package our products comply with European Regulation 1935/2004 of 27 October 2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. In addition, French law 2012-1442 provides for the suspension of the manufacture, import, export and placing on the market of any packaging, container or utensil containing bisphenol A intended to come into direct contact with with foodstuffs.

Preserve nature to the end of packaging!Respecting the environment goes beyond giving priority to organic teas. It is important for us to commit ourselves to the whole process. Eco-responsible and of an optimal quality, our packagings preserve the teas without altering their taste. Essentially manufactured in France, they use materials derived from renewable and biodegradable resources.

Our bags are kraft paper from sustainably managed forests (PEFC), solvent-free scotches, gift boxes made in France, printing with water-based ink.

Since the Fukushima disaster in 2011, strict specific regulations have been put in place to control each batch of tea from Japan and on arrival in France. Our suppliers have inspections done by certified organizations and have a zero tolerance on the indicators of radioactivity in tea.

Most of our teas are bought on the island of Kyushu, the most southern of Japan and are grown in organic farming. So there is no fear to have.
