Human Tribe Tea
In 2014, Bradley Dobos saw a picture of Roger Fisher on Facebook holding a large jar of tea. Inquiring about it, he reestablished a friendship that had begun in the late 1960s, when Roger began frequenting Tenzing Momo and Company, an herb store Bradley had created in the Pike Place Market.
Back then, their bond had been instant, Bradley recognizing a kindred spirit with a fascination of chemistry and how specific herbs and plants could be used to one’s benefit.
Fast forward fifty years to 2015. “I’ve been enjoying this tea an average of five days a week since November, in large quantity, just to know what it would do to me. I’ve been amazed to see my suspicions realized, as I’d hoped the gotu kola and other brain-friendly elements would make a difference in my mental perception. They made a BIG difference!”
The name comes from Roger and brother Michael’s company, Human Tribe LLC, an entity dedicated to the mission of bringing light and love to the planet through multimedia art.

Is Human Tribe Tea a loose-leaf tea?
It is available both as loose-leaf and bagged.
What is the best way to store loose-leaf tea?
Store the tea in an air-tight container (such as the bag it came in), away from direct sunlight.
Does Human Tribe Tea have an expiration date?
Yes, we strongly recommend you drink it before you expire. Seriously, herbs gradually lose their potency over time. There is no specific expiration date.
How many servings are in one order of Human Tribe Tea?
Serving amount depends on how strong you like it. To Rog’s taste, there would be 14 servings per bag.
Is there caffeine in Human Tribe Tea?
Very little. Yerba mate, one of the ingredients, has some caffeine. There are other stimulants: ginseng; Fo-ti root; yohimbe, and more.
Is it okay to consume the tea before bed?
Rog has found the tea to be stabilizing, as opposed to stimulating, as it has properties of both calming and stimulation. Depending on the individual, it shouldn’t represent a deterrent to sleep.
I am pregnant. Can I drink this tea?
If you are pregnant, consult your doctor before consuming Human Tribe tea.
Is it safe for children to consume?
Rog says, “To the best of my knowledge, Human Tribe Tea is not only safe for children, but very beneficial to their health.”
How many cups a day do you drink of this tea?
Rog drinks three to five cups a day.
