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

Today our children went to school which has drawn out so many mixed emotions. Normally the first day of school is a celebratory feeling, but today is quite different. On one hand, we are happy they return to school for two days a week of in-school instruction where they’ll get to have a quasi-normal school experience while wearing masks and socially distancing from their peers. On the other hand, we worry about their health both emotional and physical.

During the global pandemic we’ve altered most of our daily routines to stay socially distance from others and remain in our homes to keep each other safe.  Fortunately, our community has done a great job of containing the spread of the virus, so we felt comfortable taking a little nearby adventure.
