Sheep Sorrel Roots in Essiac Tea
Essiac Tea and A Nurse's Tea logo



This has been a very rough winter season in terms of freezing temperatures.  Because the tea does not have any preservatives, it will take a day to freeze it rock solid and then once it thaws, it will break.  If the bottle(s) is in transit over the weekend, there is a large chance that it will freeze.  On Sundays, UPS doesn't move the packages so my boxes sit in an outside unheated trailer.  I have had to make a tough decision due to this issue and that is, I will only ship out Monday or Tuesday, possibly Wednesday if the package will get to you by Friday.  If you know the package is going to be sitting outside your house in freezing temperatures, please arrange for the box to go to a warm place.  There will be a warmer inside the box, but it will stop working if the temperature gets too low. 


I apologize for this, but I have no say in what mother nature does.  Please keep warm out there!  Chris

  • This is the time of year when weather impacts deliveries.  Because the tea has no preservatives, the liquid will freeze and then the bottle will break if it sits still for a few hours.  UPS does not make deliveries on Sunday, so that could cause the tea to freeze.  We try to avoid this problem by shipping on Mondays and Tuesdays so that not only will the tea keep moving through the system, but you will (should) get the tea by Friday, thus avoiding that Sunday hold.  If a frozen bottle arrives broken at your door, take a picture of it to send to me and carefully discard the glass.

  • Please do not give out your loyalty code except for SUNBEAR.  It could cause a cancellation of an order.  Thanks!

  • ​Remember that when you order more, the cost per bottle goes down dramatically when you factor in the shipping.  For example, 1 qt is approximately $32/bottle but ordering 3 qts would be approximately $25/bottle.

  • Log in issues:  We are aware of the problems with logins in terms of the system not recognizing you.  Don't worry, if you get that unkind message, just ignore it and continue on as a guest.  The loyalty program points are added up in a different program, so rest assured, you will be credited your bear points.  If you need our help, please contact us and we will fix the problem for you immediately.
