Ti Kuan Yin oolong, safflowers, blue flowers & acai berry extract.
We have married real, organic acai extract with our organic Ti Kuan Yin oolong tea, creating a well-balanced & delicious cup that is celebrated for its juicy, delectable flavor & nutritional properties. Acai is packed with high levels of iron, calcium, carbohydrates, fiber & antioxidants that can lend itself to numerous health benefits--from lowering the risk of heart disease, to fighting cancer, down to keeping your skin’s youthful glow.
For centuries, inhabitants of the Amazon rainforest have gathered acai (ah-sigh-EE) berries from the Acaizeiro palm tree for their health benefits. Frozen & topped with granola, this berry is the star of Brazil's favorite breakfast bowl. The way it looks speaks of its appeal. The slender palm can grow as high as 50 to 100 feet & bears deep, purple berries loaded with nutritional benefits already known to locals for centuries. This deep purple fruit has the sweet, rich flavors of concord grapes & ripe blueberries.
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.
