Organic Tea & Coffee
There's no need to limit your organic drinking to wine alone, there's a world of quality teas and coffees to try. These are great as gifts! Tea is perhaps one of the oldest drinks in existence with its roots traced back to circa 2,800 BC, just a few centuries after the beginning of the earliest recorded history. At its most basic, tea is made from boiled water with a few tea leaves and herbs mixed in for flavouring. In the west, however, tea has taken almost a cult-like status due to its antioxidant properties. Tea has been the go-to remedy for treating a plethora of ailments from weight loss to fighting cancer.
To reap the full health benefits and richness of the taste, aim for organic tea. Tea made from naturally produced leaves and herbs nurtures the body, mind, and spirit. It also honours nature and promotes a thriving global community dedicated to the sustainability of the planet.
Since tea is universally enjoyed, it makes a great gift. With a robust selection that includes imports from countries like India and South Africa, you can try the very best tea produced through the methods, customs, and traditions of the land from which the ingredients are cultivated.
