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 premium, organic tea leaves 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 brew our precious tea at low temperatures for up to 8 hours. This low and slow process gently extracts all naturally occurring antioxidants and phytonutrients in their entirety and preserves them without any loss. The water in this super-potent brew is then separated away using a proprietary combination of pressure and very low heat. This is simply the most effective way to extract the active ingredients in plants ever invented.
Maximum Active Ingredients
We provide a higher level of efficacy than any other tea on the market, as if you were repeatedly brewing and drinking a pot of loose leaf tea for hours! In fact, Pique delivers up to 12x the polyphenols of other teas (verified by 3rd party testing). It’s simply the most effective way to unlock the amazing benefits of tea like improved gut health, sustained energy and reduced stress.
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: 1) Pesticide screening of EVERY batch of tea we purchase AND our final product. We adhere to a higher level of screening than USDA Organic requirements! 2) Heavy metal screening. 3) Harmful mycotoxins (toxic mold) screening. Mycotoxins are common in teas and have been linked to a wide range of harmful effects for regular tea drinkers.

"Anyone who knows me is familiar with my tea obsession - green tea specifically. As a functional medicine practitioner, I am always running between patients at my clinic or traveling to different wellness events across the country. Pique’s high antioxidant content gives my immune system the boost and protection it needs to keep up with my daily busy schedule! It’s the perfect way to hydrate since I can quickly mix it with hot or cold water to get my fix. It’s also organic so I can be confident in what I am fueling my body with every day!"

“As someone who is not a coffee drinker and loves her morning tea, I have been increasingly concerned about the variety of contaminants currently being found in even “organically grown” teas from certain Asian countries. I am also fairly appalled at the adverse health effects associated with use of conventional and particularly the newer “pillow” style tea bags on the market. Loose leaf teas are obviously a bit less convenient, and are cumbersome to travel with.
I am thus far favorably impressed with the quality, taste, exceptional nutrient profile and 3rd party testing (for at least some possible contaminants) with Pique Tea. I believe this company has the potential to revolutionize the consumption of tea. The convenience of the packets, the quality of the nutrient profile, the testing and the marvelous flavor all make Pique Tea a no-brainer when it comes to making it a number one choice for anyone who 1) loves drinking tea, and 2) cares passionate about their health. I do not make public endorsements lightly, but I must say I am pretty impressed!”

"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!
