teas for earth week — and beyondApril 20th, 2010No Comments »
it goes without saying that organic production is important for the future of the planet. at urbana, we recognize the importance of organics in general, and the importance of organic tea in particular. this earth day and beyond, join us in our dedication to supporting organic tea. go green (or black… or white…) with urbana’s dozens of organic-certified teas and botanicals.
organic tea certification takes into account cultivation, handling and packaging in order to ensure sustainability and minimal damage to the environment. our certified biodynamic teas (such as those from makaibari estate in darjeeling) go beyond organic practices to work with surroundings’ ecosystems and benefit the environment. plus, you’ll be glad to know that a tea habit has been shown to be more sustainable than a coffee habit, and even conventionally grown tea is fairly carbon neutral compared to other foods.
ready for a taste of flavorful, fresh, earth-friendly tea? check out these fan favorites from our organic tea collection:
satiating, caffeine-free macadamia nut rooibos is decadently delicious (and very guilt-free) when brewed as a latte with organic, local milk.
hand-rolled, buttery, floral jasmine pearl brews again and again – reuse your leaves for an even greener pot of organic green tea!
honey-sweet peach blossom white tea is like the delicate taste of a springtime harvest… and it’s good for the planet.
piquant, bold spicy ginger yerba mate shows mother nature’s fiery side (and avoids her wrath!).
robust, clean, fruity, biodynamic darjeeling makaibari estate is one of the teas that got the whole “green” tea movement started, plus it’s fair trade.
spicy-sweet cha cha chai is more delicious (and sustainable) than the to-go cups from a certain coffee shop.
zesty, peppery, caffeine-free unity is a fantastic, earth-friendly way to unwind after a long day of saving the world.
what are your favorite organic teas and botanicals? how are you celebrating earth day with tea?
