Improve Gut Health
Polyphenols in tea help you maintain healthy gut bacteria. Your gut contains over 100 trillion bacteria that play a vital role in your overall health. That’s roughly ten times more than the cells we have in our body! Polyphenols from tea is one of the very best ways to feed the probiotics in your gut and increase their numbers naturally. Polyphenols are a prebiotic-type substance that feed healthy gut bacteria, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, and there is no better source for it than tea. A healthy balance of gut flora will provide you with improved digestion, weight loss, improved immunity and even glowing skin!
Experience longer lasting, calmer energy with no jitters. Tea caffeine is bound to larger molecules called catechins (a type of antioxidant). Catechins take longer for your body to break down and so the caffeine in tea is time released in smaller doses over 4-6 hours. At the same time, L-theanine (an amino acid only found in tea) keeps you calm so you don't experience the energy roller coaster of coffee. Unleash your creative energy and live an exceptional life!
Tea will keep you calm through the day and prevent cellular damage related to stress. Daoists and Buddhist monks have consumed tea for centuries to prepare for deep meditative practice. That's because of an amino acid called L-theanine which induces alpha activity in the brain and provides a natural state of calmness. L-theanine has only been found in tea and increases our ability to excel in stressful situations by reducing stress and anxiety so you can take on life's challenges and unleash your inner potential.
The Greatest Natural Source of Polyphenols
So why exactly is tea so healthy for you?
It’s all about the vital plant nutrient polyphenols...
Polyphenols are antioxidants found in tea and superplants. They fight against free radicals in the body and keep your gut bacteria healthy and happy. Polyphenols are so effective they can eliminate and possibly reverse the oxidative damage your body is subjected to every day. Getting enough polyphenols lead to the following benefits...
✓ Improved gut health and digestion
✓ Stronger immunity
✓ Sustained energy
✓ Reduced stress
✓ Enhanced mental clarity and focus
✓ Healthier, clearer skin
Tea is one of the richest source of polyphenols ever discovered with more scientific and clinical studies supporting its health benefits than any other superfood. But the problem is few of us are getting enough polyphenols to experience these benefits.
That’s where Pique comes in.
Highest Quality Ingredients
It all starts with the highest quality organic loose leaf tea sourced from small, family farms. Our green tea is from a family owned tea garden situated inside the Mogan Mountain National park in Zhejiang Province above 2000 ft elevation. Our black teas are from Idulgashinna, a bio-dynamic tea estate in the Uva region of Sri Lanka, and from Northeast India near the Namdapha National Park. These are amongst the world's greatest and most protected sources of biodiversity.
Patented Cold Brew Crystallization™
Next, we steep our precious organic loose leaf tea in purified water at temperatures below 105℉ for up to 6 hours. When the potent phytonutrients are fully extracted, depleted leaves are removed. The remaining brew of super-potent tea is then dehydrated using pressure and low temperatures. This is simply the most effective way to extract the active ingredients in tea and superplants ever invented.
Maximum Active Ingredients
We provide a higher level of efficacy than any other tea, as if you were repeatedly brewing and drinking a pot of loose leaf teaf for hours. Our patented Cold Brew Crystallization process extracts and preserves more polyphenols than any other tea on the market. Pique has up to 6x the antioxidants of teabags and 20x the antioxidants of bottled teas (verified by 3rd party testing).
Triple Toxin Screening
We ensure a higher level of purity than any other tea on the market. Here is the exhaustive Triple Toxin Screening we conduct with third party AND internal labs: 1) Pesticide screening of tea leaves and final product. We adhere to a higher level of screening than USDA Organic requirements. 2) Heavy metal screening for environmental pollutants most commonly found in tea. 3) Screening for harmful mycotoxins (toxic mold) common in tea.

"Pique Tea is a clean product that provides a convenient delivery of antioxidants to mix up your hydration game! There are so many health benefits of drinking a good cup of tea or even swapping from coffee to tea. With its smaller dose of caffeine and anxiety-lowering l-theanine abundant in tea leaves, green tea offers more steady energy without the crash produced by coffee. L-theanine in green tea helps promote the production of GABA - a relaxing neurotransmitter. With high levels of antioxidants and l-theanine present in Pique, cultivating a daily habit of drinking it can help lower stress and anxiety for a calming effect on the brain."

"Most conventional teas contain excessive pesticides and heavy metals...and that's just the leaves. The tea bags can also be a source of pesticide residues and chemical leaching. That's why I like Pique. All organic, and hand-picked to reduce the risk of heavy metal exposure, and no toxic tea bags. If tea is your drink of choice, you need to drink Pique. Not only is it delicious, it offers 6x the antioxidants than regular tea bags, and the abundance of polyphenols can also help reduce inflammation in the body while giving you the energy you need to get through your day."

How Does It Taste?
Pique broke a record and won 3 Gold Medals out of 3 submissions at the 2018 Global Tea Championships - in a blind taste of the finest loose leaf teas submitted from around the world.
"There were very few gold place winners, a gold medal winning tea is reserved for the cream of the crop, the best of the best. Not only does Pique taste exactly like loose leaf tea, to find out it comes packed with all the same antioxidant properties of leaf tea makes it a homerun! I have even fooled some of my tea snob friends who thought it was fresh brewed loose leaf tea.”

Hi! I’m Pique’s Founder, Simon. I’ve been steeped in the world of tea since I was born. A native of Hong Kong, I grew up drinking tea instead of soda. Tasting different teas after each meal with my parents and grandparents was a sacred family ritual (my grandad turns 102 this year!) After moving to the US in my teens, life got intense. Between getting into top schools and grinding in finance jobs, I abandoned the health rituals of my youth. In my 20’s, I developed one medical problem after another and had 3 hospitalizations involving surgery. The last one left me with an infection requiring 3 months of intravenous antibiotics to recover from! After that, I said never again and took back control of my health.
This was the beginning of a 10 year health quest that took me around the world to study with the most accomplished Eastern plant medicine and breathwork healers around the world - from the mountain ranges of Tibet to the heart of Indonesia and the Chinese diaspora in the Pacific Northwest! Majoring in Chinese history at Harvard, then studying literature and philosophy in Beijing, I accessed the knowledge in Eastern classics on medicine, meditation and Daoist philosophy thousands of years old.
I’ve now synthesized everything I learned into an integrated approach to health and performance combining medicinal plants and breathwork. The culmination of which is Pique. Tea is the most natural, effective and easy path to superior health. It's such low hanging fruit but very few people are benefiting from it. I consume tea everyday with minimal effort and enjoy disproportionate health improvements and I want to help everyone do the same.
Once you experience the ease and potency of tea, you’ll become fanatical and share it with all your friends and loved ones also!
