Ashok Tea houses a variety of teas and tisanes. While black, green, oolong, and white teas contain various levels of caffeine, tisanes are caffeine free herbal teas. Tea is a natural crop, so it is difficult to determine exact caffeine levels. Therefore, we cannot provide definitive figures. However, the table below lists the average levels of caffeine that can be found in different teas.

Please note that this chart is intended as a guide only.
  • Black tea / 25 – 90mg
  • Oolong tea / 12-55mg
  • Green tea / 8 – 36mg
  • White tea / 6 – 25mg

No. We do not decaffeinate any of our teas, here at Ashok Tea. The decaffeination process involves a lot of chemicals that can affect the flavour and quality of the tea, which is why we do not have decaffeinated tea as part of our range. However, we do offer a range of tisanes, which are herbal teas made by blending herbs, spices, fruits and flowers without tea leaves.

Compounds naturally present in tea called polyphenols, catechins and flavonoids function as antioxidants, which makes tea an extremely healthy beverage to consume daily.

To ensure that your tea stays vibrant and delicious, we recommend storing it in an airtight tin or dark glass jar away from direct sunlight and moisture.

Yes, it does. Every tea needs to be boiled at a certain temperature. Over brewing can burn the tea leaves which greatly affects its taste. For your reference:

WATER TEMPERATURE FOR STEEPING DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEA

1.White Tea160° to 170°F
2Green Tea170°to 180° F
3Oolong Tea180° to 200°F
4Black Tea190° to 200°F

You can make two cups of tea out of one tea bag at a time but you cannot store the tea bag for later use as the tea leaves and the essential herbs will lose their flavour and with them their beneficial qualities.

While the general procedure of preparing tea leaves are similar, there is a difference in the temperature of water and steeping time. For your convenience, we have mentioned the steeping instructions of each tea on their pages on our website ashoktea.com. However, if you wish to experiment with your tea and prepare a new version of it, you can check out the recipe section of our blog.

Yes. We have a retail store located at:

B.O. – , Fawara Chowk, Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh -456010

The quantity of tea leaves depends on the type of tea being used. For example, a cup of Green tea requires 1-2 gm for 180ml.

If consumed in an appropriate amount, tea will never cause any harm to your body. However, if consumed more than recommended, it can cause acidity. Similarly, for pregnant women caffeinated teas may not be suitable, therefore they should always consult their doctors before consuming any tea during pregnancy.

It’s not a very tedious task to make green tea a part of your everyday routine. All you need to do is figure out the reason why you want to drink green tea. For example, if you want to start drinking green tea for better digestion, start with one cup every day after your meal. Also, if it’s difficult for you to develop the taste of green tea, you can choose from the different flavours available and add honey to it to make it a little sweet.
