We've all heard the expression, "Eat your fruits & vegetables" right? It's as old as time itself. We have heard it so many times we decided to do something about it.

The result is "Wholesome and Good". Getting your fruits & vegetables never tasted better!
Exploring the deeper characteristics of this tea leads us first to the health benefits. Known to contain elements such as lariciresinol, pinoresinol & secoisolariciresinol, cucumbers are reputed to help reduce cardiovascular disease in addition to several cancer types including breast, uterine, ovarian & prostate. Research has also shown that cucumbers offer anti-inflammatory properties, which may make it helpful for fighting arthritis.
Unlike other beverages like soft drinks & coffee, green tea is known to quench the thirst, like water. Add in the light vegetal notes of cucumber & you’re primed for hydration. Speaking of the vegetal notes of cucumber, we’ve also added in some natural extract of watermelon flavor. Together, these create an exceptionally light cup with sweet, fresh melon notes & cucumber on the finish.
Our authentic Fair Trade & organic principles are still uncommon in the tea industry. We believe in trade that strengthens the autonomy of small farmer organizations, promotes among farmers a sense ownership & control over one’s business, encourages entrepreneurial attitudes & a risk-taking culture, strengthens & builds community & encourages debate & participatory decision making. We believe that “Fair Trade” must mean “small farmer” & our relationships reflect that.
Each of our producer partners is unique, with a storied history of ambition, struggle & success over the years. They have worked to set themselves apart in a historically oppressive industry.
