Allergens in our teas

Allergens in our teas

At Bluebird, our aim is to have fun, accessible and tasty tea for everyone so we strive to create blends from all sorts of wonderful ingredients. The more unusual ingredients that we use can contain traces of nuts, dairy and wheat. Most are only trace level and once infused in a cup of tea these ingredients are very low. Please find all the information you need below to make your own choices regarding which teas are suitable for you.
 

We have also included information about vegan-friendly teas and those that contain sugar as this is the most commonly requested allergen information.

If you are unsure if one of our teas has something in it you can’t have, the product description on each tea’s page can tell you, this is located on the right if you scroll down the page. Our tea packaging also always have the ingredients listed and allergens in bold.

WARNING: Our teas are hand packed in the UK in environments that handle many different blending ingredients and we cannot 100% guarantee no cross-contamination. Therefore all blends may contain traces of: wheat, nuts, peanuts, milk, soya, mustard, sesame and sulphites.

PLEASE NOTE: Sulphites are used in foods due to their anti-bacterial and preservative properties. None of Bluebird’s blends contain sulphites as an ingredient but some of our dried fruit pieces come from a factory that uses Sulphur dioxide (E220) to prevent browning and rotting for some of its other dried fruit pieces (none that Bluebird use) so we cannot guarantee there are no traces.
