I have to start off by saying that I’ve never been a tea drinker. Even after removing the majority of caffeine from my life (it makes me anxious!), I still find myself reaching for organic decaf coffee over tea most days. However, Pique Tea is a game changer for me.
We’ll get into a little more about how it works in a bit, but what I love about Pique Tea is that it’s super easy to make. As in...I don’t have to wait for anything to steep for 3-5 minutes. And in a world where my time is precious, this is a big perk! Pique tea is cold brewed, organic, freshly harvested, whole-leaf tea packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants...up to 12X the antioxidants of other leading tea brands.
This is huge for those of you who suffer from inflammation, because antioxidants help fight free radicals that wreak havoc in our bodies and cause all of that inflammation. Pique tea is concentrated into Pique Tea crystals and easily dissolves in seconds in cold or hot water (some variations only dissolve in hot water, so make sure to check the directions). When I want a cup, I simply pour my tea pouch into a cup, add water, and give it a stir. So simple!
So, why am I talking about tea on a dry eye blog? I touched on this earlier, but dry eye is a result of inflammation. Nearly every single chronic disease we experience is a result of inflammation. Tea contains tons of healthy antioxidants that fight this inflammation, and it also contains polyphenols that help feed good gut bacteria. A healthy balance of gut bacteria has been linked to digestive support, immune support, and a decrease in inflammation throughout the body...something we could all use.
What I love about Pique Tea, besides the ease of use and healthy benefits, is that they use the highest quality organic ingredients available (sourced from family farms as well). They also ensure a higher level of purity than any other tea company on the market today, meaning they screen for heavy metals, pesticides, and toxic mold. This is a higher standard than that of the USDA for organic standards. For those who drink tea regularly, this can be huge because tea is often harvested in areas of high pollution and pesticide use, meaning that the longer your tea bag sits, the greater its chance of toxic mold and accumulation of toxins in your teacup.
In addition to this, all Pique tea is free of artificial flavors, preservatives, sugar and artificial sweeteners.
5 Benefits of Pique Tea
Supports Gut Health - Polyphenols are a prebiotic type substance that help feed healthy gut bacteria. A healthy gut means better digestion, weight management, immune support, less inflammation, and more. Since Pique tea is cold brewed and freshly harvested it has almost 12 times the antioxidants of other teas which was verified by 3rd party testing.
Supports Fasting - Tea has been used for centuries by monks to aid in fasting. It is also being recognized in the medical community to help patients fast more easily by keeping your full longer.
Calmness - Tea can help keep you calm throughout the day, and we especially love the caffeine free versions available.
100% Organic - Non-GMO, no junk, no pesticides... just organic tea to help you detox even more. They also have a triple toxin screening to ensure high quality tea that is free from pesticides, heavy metals, and toxic mold.
They offer a full refund if you're not satisfied.
Where To Buy Pique Tea Crystals?
You might be asking yourself, “Where can I buy Pique Tea?” There are a couple different options for you here. First of all, I love supporting small businesses directly on their website, but I also love Amazon for the convenience. Whatever you choose, you can purchase Pique Tea from a few different places, including in stores.
As I stated before, I love to support companies on their website whenever possible and you can definitely purchase all of the amazing Pique Tea products right on their site. For those who suffer from chronic inflammation, I’d suggest trying out one of theirGut Health Bundles.

If you prefer to purchase on Amazon, Pique Tea is also available there. They have all of their best sellers available for you to enjoy.
If you prefer to shop in stores, or you’re out and about buying groceries anyway, make sure tocheck out the Store Locator on the Pique Tea websiteto find a store near you that carries it. Whole Foods is on the list (although not all of them carry it yet), as well as HEB and Wegmans if you have those near you.

Due to all of the chronic inflammation in our society, I believe it’s so important to support your gut microbiome as much as possible, and Pique Tea is a great way to get started with this or enhance an already healthy eating routine.
If you’re looking for a popular breakfast tea with slightly less caffeine, this could be your winner. Combining Ceylon black tea with a hint of citrus is a great way to wake up in the morning. This one needs to be mixed only with hot water, but I believe this is the best way to enjoy this variety of tea anyway.
This tea is a great alternative to your morning coffee, even for those of us who love that coffee flavor! This one must be mixed with hot water only, which is actually a plus because you can create everything from a simple tea to a latte. It’s got a bold, earthy tone that incorporates hints of malt, which is especially great for fall and winter weather.
Most of you may already know the immense antioxidant benefits of green tea, and this one boasts the addition of fresh summer jasmine petals. The unique floral flavor combined with the right amount of caffeine makes this the perfect pick-me-up for a busy morning or afternoon...without the jitters.
Green tea is known for its super antioxidant power, and this tea packs all of that and more. Flavored with a slight mint undertone, these green tea crystals are perfect for those who may dislike the slight bite of some green tea on the market. As with many of their teas, you can drink this one iced or hot!
My favorite of the bunch (especially while avoiding caffeine), this lovely tea is hard to put down. Hibiscus contains over 10X the vitamin C of oranges, and it’s got a refreshing flavor that can’t be beat. It’s not too tart, and has the perfect combination of hibiscus and mint to soothe any afternoon rush.
When my gut just doesn’t feel right, or I maybe indulged over the weekend, this ginger elixir tea is exactly what I need. Ginger has been used for centuries to promote healthy digestion, and to soothe and calm an upset stomach. I love that this tea also incorporates citrus, mint, and licorice root, because this gives it a drinkable, enjoyable nature.
A new innovation from Pique Tea, the Cinnamon Herbal Fasting Tea is such a treat! This caffeine free herbal tea was formulated alongside intermittent fasting expert Dr. Jason Fung and is a great way to wind down the day (or start your morning, if you’re still fasting!) Using Pique Tea for fasting increases satiety and helps support a state of calm, which is so important on those fasting days.
Ingredients include all organic Burdock root, cinnamon, whole Calabrian bergamot, and spearmint. As with all of their tea, each ingredient is hand selected for its powerful properties. Burdock root has been used for digestion support in Japan, Korea and China for centuries. It has a smooth, woody flavor I know you’ll love. Cinnamon is added for the subtle spice, bergamot provides a calming and soothing effect for your fasted state, and spearmint adds a refreshing taste while also providing appetite satisfying properties. It’s clear that each ingredient is chosen for specific reasons.
Other Pique Tea fasting teas available include Matcha Green Fasting Tea and Ginger Green Fasting Tea, but I couldn’t go wrong with choosing the cinnamon.
If you can tell by now, I’m in love with Pique Tea and it might even give my coffee a run for its money. Not only is the tea uplifting and tasty, but it’s also super easy to make and I know for a fact that it’s coming from a sustainable, toxin-free source.
