Second Cup Individually Packaged Tea Bags

Are the Second Cup individually packaged tea bags kosher? I received a box of assorted flavors as a gift and when I checked them I do not see a kosher symbol on the. I looked on their website but didn't find any information. Has anyone looked into this?

  1. I don't know anything about the company, nor can I find information online. For what it's worth, the Star-K and CRC (Chicago Rabbinical Council) say that unflavored black or green teas do not require certification, nor does Earl Grey if its only additional ingredient is bergamot oil (but bergamot flavor does need certification).

    1. On their website is a contact info page. Why don't you call or write them? Second Cup
