The Republic of Tea is recalling all Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea in response to a possible health risk. There have been no illnesses reported. No other teas are impacted by this recall.

The Republic of Tea was notified by one of our suppliers, of the possibility that one lot of its organic ginger ingredient may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
