My passion for organic lifestyle and the love for tea motivated me to sell organic teas. I like organic products because they are pure, healthy and kind to the environment. Admittedly I do not lead an organic lifestyle to the letter but I have a great awareness about its advantages. I do enjoy a cup of organic tea and I also use organic products for my well-being. Through organic tea I hope to help people achieve their optimal health and well-being.
My love for tea started at an early age. My late grandmother inspired me to enjoy a cup of tea. When growing up I used to watch her in awe when she drank her tea sitting on the chair which was next to the window. She made her ritual to drink it from the saucer. It took me a long time to understand the reason for doing that. In fact she was not the only one who did that at that time. Somehow it did not cross my mind to ask why she was drinking her tea from the saucer. Later in life I found out that it was to cool the tea off. Watching her enjoying the morning sun and her cup of tea was fascinating. She would sip it as if her life depended on it. I started imitating her and before I realised I was hooked on tea.
Tea is not just a beverage, it is a way of life. There is emerging evidence for a wide range of health benefits associated with tea. Tea has a very high concentration of antioxidants called flavonoids and this is why it has amazing health benefits. Some studies have shown that tea contributes positively to: brain functioning, reducing stress, aiding meditation, helping to maintain heart health, reducing risk of cancer, helping with anti-ageing and weight loss.
