This product is unique because nothing has been sprayed on the Blue Sky Organics olive trees for 18 months and this is a unique situation. Agro-chemically farmed olive farms cannot use their leaves because of all the pesticides and chemicals they spray onto their trees, so only organic olive leaves can ever be used. However, organic olive farmers spray natural products for pests and disease and we would also not want to drink those products in our tea.
At Blue Sky Organics the eco system has balanced to the stage where the pests and disease are here in small enough numbers that we do not have to spray - nature is in balance. So what you get when you drink Blue Sky Organics Olive Leaf Tea is just that - pure natural olive leaf.
Blue Sky Organics’ Olive Leaf Tea is proudly continuing with an ancient practice of thousands of years where the incredible healing properties of the olive leaf was used to prevent and treat a wide range of ailments.
The olive leaf tea has a delicious smooth, rich and unique flavour with a mild bitterness which comes from the oleuropein content in the leaf. It has an olive green colour which comes from the vitalizing and health boosting olive leaf from which it is made.
Studies have identified Oleuropein, Hydroxytyrosol, Tyrosol, and Polyphenols as the major beneficial compounds found in olive leaf, which gives this health tea its special edge over other teas and remedies .
Olive leaf is very high in Vitamin C and is traditionally used to combat colds, flu, viruses, bacteria, shingles and to increase energy. Olive leaf is a powerful antioxidant and reduces free radicals which are thought to disrupt the immune system. It is thought to be the most aggressive Free Radical Scavenger known. Olive leaf is high in Polyphenols for heart health, and has also been shown to lower blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol. Oleuropein (ohlee-or-oh-pin) is a natural antibiotic, anti-bacterial, anti-viral & anti-fungal compound. Unlike synthetic antibiotics, it destroys only the bad bacteria and protects the good. Medical research suggests that when oleuropein is ingested, it seeks out and "inactivates" malign bacteria. It dissolves the outer lining of the infectious germs and then penetrates the infected cells, thus inhibiting their replication.

Olive leaf is an ancient remedy whose first recorded use was in 1000 BC. Olive leaf has been directly cited in science, mythology, and the Bible as a healer. The leaves of olive trees have been used for thousands of years as a homeopathic remedy in the Mediterranean part of the world.
