Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa), also known as Black Snake Root, is native to eastern North America. A member of the buttercup family, Black Cohosh is a perennial plant with feathery white flowers. North American Indians used the roots to treat kidney disorders, sore throats, malaria, and rheumatism. The root demonstrates some estrogen regulating ability which may ease the severity of hot flashes associated with menopause. Research indicates that it may act as an anti-inflammatory, particularly in the joints, which supports its use to treat arthritis. The roots of black cohosh have been traditionally used for more than two centuries by Native Americans and Europeans to help support women s health.

With a history dating back to 1922, Alvita tea has been manufacturing pure and natural singles and blends. They are most well known for their commitment to the environment, and offer some of the most sustainable and green-friendly packaging for their tea products currently available. The box that contains the tea is composed of 100% recycled board, which can then be recycled again to keep the trend going and eliminate waste. The bags themselves that contain the tea have no excessive strings, tags, or staples, but are instead "English pillow" style, so that no space is wasted.
The paper used in the teabags that hold Alvita tea is also completely recycled, and the bags are oxygen bleached rather than bleached with chlorine, which can cause damage to the ground water and environment. This attention to detail extends beyond their packaging, and also helps describe the products, as the tea is crafted with a purity and attention to detail that is good for the earth and for customers alike. That is why more and more customers have chosen this brand of herbal tea over others, when faced with such a wide selection.
