St Patrick's Day sale, 15% off all green tea this week!

Our chais are featured in the eco-friendly products magazine, the studio

The strange weather this spring - both here in the US, and Darjeeling on the other side of the globe from where we source some of our teas - underscores my decision to take our business green. We have been taking steps, determined to be 100 per cent green. We already have decided to deal only with organic teas. When I look at the faces of my two small children, I think if nothing I owe it to them.

As part of our effort to go green, we joined Team Eco-Etsy, a group of “etsy sellers dedicated to reducing, reusing, and recycling.” The team shares ideas on how as small business owners we can adopt creative practices to be gentler on the earth’s resources. It is a wonderfully supportive group of people with lots of great ideas.

Through this team I had the fortune of meeting Sonya Kanelstrand. Norway-based Sonya is a photographer who writes “about green and simple living” in her blog Kanelstrand. She has also been bringing out a stunningly beautiful online magazine the studio where she curates handcrafted eco-friendly products from around the world.

I am proud to have two of our herbal blends Yerba Mate Chai and Hibiscus Chai featured in this month’s edition of the magazine. Incidentally, these two blends, I think are emblematic of our business’s global personality: the chai from India my old home, and Mate and Hibiscus from the West, my new home!

Enjoy Sonya’s creation here, the studio

"Strolling through a pine forest or bamboo grove, viewing the rock formations, arrangement of plants, and cascading waterfalls, pausing to ponder the quiet surface of the lake and the shoreline - little by little we are encouraged to lay aside the chaos of a troubled world and gently nurture the capacity within to hear a more harmonious, universal rhythm…This is the tremendous power the Japanese gardens at Morikami Park hold for us." - Hoichi Kurisu, Master Garden Designer of Roji-en.

Toronto Tea Festival, 2019

After nine years of residing in Rochester, I finally crossed over to the other side of Ontario Lake, to get to the Canadian city of Toronto - thanks to its annual tea festival. For the efforts - which included an early rise and a hangover from the polar vortex of the century - we were richly rewarded. Our day trip was filled with many cups of warm wonderful teas, encounters with equally warm tea enthusiasts, and topped off by a documentary on Darjeeling tea!
