Frequently Asked Questions
+What is a Mab Tab?
Mab Tabs redesign the experience of herbal healing in a beautiful, powerful, and convenient package. Each Mab Tab is a specially-formulated herbal super tab of highly concentrated, premium quality herbs that dissolve easily into any hot beverage.
+Why do we say "6-10" ingredients in each Mab Tab?
All Mab Tabs have the equivalent of 6-10 full daily servings of herbs (think 6-10 off the shelf products). The number varies because each Mab Tab has a different blend and number of ingredients based on customer needs. Our Custom Mabs are designed to serve the individual wellness goals of the customers who buy them, and our Readymade Mab Tabs serve as a booster for specific targets like Focus or Calm. If you visit our website, you will find a list of the ingredients used in each Readymade Mab Tabs, as well as a full list of herbs that we draw from for Custom Mab Tabs. All of our herbs are organic, sustainably wildcrafted or ecologically cultivated.
+What are herbal super tabs designed to do?
Mab Tabs are designed to help bring the body back into balance. Our formulas support or enhance wellness. They are not designed to treat chronic or acute medical conditions. We only use ingredients with an observed history of effective use over 1000+ years and all formulas are overseen by leading phytochemists and seasoned herbalists.
+How long does it make Mab Tabs to work?
Our Custom Mab Tabs use a variety of tonic and adaptogenic herbs to meet your individual goals. These herbs have a cumulative effect and can take from 2 to 4 weeks of daily use to engage your body’s innate powers of self-healing and harmonization. Our team of herbal advocates check in regularly to ensure that each individual is getting the most from each month’s batch of Mab Tabs and to stay updated on evolving goals.
+What’s the best way to take Mab Tabs?
You can drop Mab Tabs in anything you love to drink, but they work best stirred in 8-12 ounces of any hot beverage. We suggest dropping your Custom Mab Tabs in tea, hot water, or coffee to get your day underway.
+When is the best time of day to take Mab Tabs?
Most people drop their Mab Tabs in their morning beverage of choice, but the timing is up to you. Most important is to take them every day, so whatever routine helps you be consistent is the best one.
+If one of my goals is better sleep, will my Mab Tab make me sleepy?
Not to worry, custom blends that target sleep support do so without causing sleepiness. As with all the custom Mab Tab formulas, they may be taken any time of the day.
+Why do my Custom Mab Tabs sometimes vary in color from month to month?
In part, your Custom Mab Tabs reflect the colors of herbs that comprise them. Your herbalist will tweak your formula based on your feedback, seasonal changes, and to optimize your wellness over time. Thus, you may see color variation in your personal formula as it evolves with you.
+What’s the sediment at the bottom of my cup?
There may be a little plant matter left after your Mab Tab dissolves. We factor this into our formulations, so you’ll get the full benefit of your Mabs Tabs, regardless. Feel free to drink them up or leave them behind. Think of them as tea leaves or coffee grinds.
+Do Mab Tabs contain caffeine?
Green Tea is one of the ingredients we may use to craft your custom Mab Tab, particularly if your goals include addressing aches and pains, and boosting metabolism. It’s the only ingredient that we use, which contains caffeine, though compared to a cup of coffee, it is a very small amount. The amount of green tea that we use is equivalent to about 10-14mg versus a cup of coffee has between 70-140mg.
+How does Mab & Stoke’s subscription plan work?
By subscribing, you ensure the continuity of personalized herbalist care and support. Plus, you get 10% off your next order and early access to small batch products and VIP events.

+Are your ingredients organic?
All of our ingredients are organic, responsibly wildcrafted, or ethically cultivated. We do not tolerate the use of pesticides on the plants that go into our formulas. Some farmers from whom we source use traditional cultivation methods that have been around for centuries. Even if an organic certification program is not available to these farmers, we monitor and test to ensure no agrochemicals are present. Any herbs grown in the wild have been ethically harvested.
+Are all of your ingredients kosher?
We’re pursuing certification of our ingredients as 100 percent kosher.
+Are all of your ingredients non-GMO?
All our ingredients are 100 percent non-GMO.
+Are all of your ingredients gluten-free?
All our ingredients are 100 percent gluten-free, including formulas containing oats.
+Is your packaging green?
The envelope and sticker that protect your individual Mab Tabs are 100% biodegradable.
Our shipping boxes are 100 percent reusable and recyclable, and made from 100 percent post-consumer material. Our signature keepsake tins are to be reused as storage for all sorts of things (pencils, coins, paint brushes, poems). The 100% organic linen travel bag that arrives with your first order is not only biodegradable, but designed for reuse, so pack your Mab Tabs in it whenever you’re away from home.
+How does Mab & Stoke help the planet?
Every order equals one tree planted. We give back with every purchase through our reforestation partnership with American Forests. We also support various local rewilding projects and help to fund botanical sanctuaries for at risk species through United Plant Savers. We are incorporated as a Benefit Corporation, which means we build stakeholder impact into our long-term planning as a company. We hold ourselves accountable for measuring and verifying our entire environmental and social performance -- from supply chain and input materials to charitable giving and employee benefits. Now that we have officially launched, we have applied for B-corp certification, which will further solidify this commitment.
+Where do your herbs come from?
All our herbs come from farms and suppliers who comply with our high standards for responsibly-sourced and sustainably-grown ingredients. Some herbs are grown outside of the United States by communities that have harvested according to traditional practices for many generations.
+Are the herbs you use safe?
All of the plants we use have a high safety profile. We rely on gentle, nourishing tonic herbs that can be taken regularly over the long-term to strengthen and harmonize the body’s systems. If you have any questions about the suitability of a given herb for your specific health needs, sensitivities, or allergies, we recommend that you consult with your physician.
+Can I take Mab Tabs if pregnant?
Our herbal supertabs are not designed for people who are pregnant. We always recommend discussing any supplements one wishes to take with a physician.
+Where do you ship?
