Olive teas are naturally free from caffeine, which means you don’t run the risk of indulging in too much caffeine. Olive teas are also a great source of Vitamin C as they contain 4 times more Vitamin C than the very healthy green teas!

Olive teas are a rich source of antioxidants and polyphenols, particularly Oleuropein. Oleuropein is a compound found abundantly in olive leaves. This active compound is known to help increase our body’s immunity to fight off disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
