Safety Tips

Some Basic Safety Tips

  • Herbal avian teas are not to replace drinking water but to be used as an additional supplement to enrich your birds' diet.

  • Never offer hot tea to your bird. Must be served at mild temperature.

  • Never use boiled water as it will destroy the beneficial compounds of the tea.

  • Since tea is a raw, whole food source, we offer it at the same time as other fresh foods and remove it when we pull those fresh foods to avoid spoilage.

  • Never offer your bird tea that contains caffeine. Caffeine causes cardiac malfunction in birds and is associated with increased heartbeat, arrhythmia, hyper activity, and cardiac arrest.

  • Avoid serving herbal teas that have been pre-packed in tea bags since the majority have been chlorine bleached, which means they are the results of an intensive chemical process.

   Not all herbal teas are bird safe so do your research before offering to your pet bird.
