Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is this?

Well hello there! You have entered the wonderful world of Long Dog Tea Co.! We offer you whole leaf tea, teaware and tea inspired gifts to share with you. Oh also dogs. We love dogs!

Q. Is this tea for dogs?

No this is intended for human consumption.

Q. Can my dog drink tea?

We do not recommend giving your dog our tea. Dogs are very sensitive to caffeine. In high doses it can be toxic. Tea with the stimulant can cause tummy aches. While some of our tea does not contain caffeine, we are not vets, so you should consult with your vet for any more questions. We do not give our dogs our tea. They just like to hang with us during tea time.

Q. Isn't tea just flavored water?

Well yeah. Isn't coffee just bean water? Tea is what you make it. You have control of your tea! Try different steeping times and the amount of teas you use for you cup. Just like coffee, adding more or less milk or sugar to taste.

Q. Do you have organic teas?

Although we aren't currently certified as an organic manufacturer, we maintain best practices with our suppliers. While some ingredients in our blends may be organically processed, legally we cannot label them as organic. We or our packer do not carry an organic certification. Organic certifications will add more cost to teas.
