Feed a hungry child with every tea purchaseCharity Tea
Back in October 2019 I wrote a blog post about the amazing luxury organic teas created by a New Zealand born company, Charity Tea. There I touched on the background of how Charity Tea came about and the incredible generosity of the founder Gill. The tag lines for this company are ‘The Tea That Nourishes’ and ‘Feed a hungry child with every tea purchase’. This makes my heart sing knowing that our purchases are not only nourishing our bodies but are helping many hungry children both in New Zealand and Haiti. So far nearly 9,000 meals have been donated! Since my first post about Charity Tea, the business has grown and is now offering Tea Plan Subscriptions. This is a wonderfully innovative idea; it means you can have luxury organic teas delivered straight to your door every month – and never run out. Suited for all budgets, you are able to select your amount and choice of two (or more depending on your plan choice) of their 15 different teas. Sounds perfect doesn’t it! I am so excited to see this being offered in New Zealand by a company that is transparent in its beliefs and ideals. I for one will certainly be subscribing, now to decide which teas I need!
I have been enjoying two of the superb teas from Charity Tea; Kawa – Organic Kawakawa Lemon & Ginger and Peachy – Organic Peach HoneyBush.
Kawa – Organic Kawakawa Lemon & Ginger:
This tea is light, refreshing and has a beautifully aromatic quality to it. With certified organic Lemongrass sourced from Egypt, Ginger sourced from India, Calendula and native New Zealand Kawakawa leaf it is a versatile tea that can be served hot or iced. I really enjoyed a hot cup of this invigorating tea during the afternoon when I was needing a bit of a pick me up.
Peachy – Organic Peach HoneyBush:
The aroma of this tea will make you smile – it is divine! I am not normally a fab of peach flavoured tea but this one made me go back for a second cup. It is made up of certified organic Honeybush, Elderflowers and natural peach flavor sourced from South Africa. Another tea that can be enjoyed hot or iced, I brewed this tea with 100deg freshly boiled water and let it steep for 5 minutes. I found this to be a very warming tea, that enveloped my senses completely. I am looking forward to trying it as a refreshing iced tea.
Charity Tea Branded Strainer with Lid:
This unique Tea Strainer design has a Charity Tea branded lid that also doubles as a tea strainer saucer when you remove it from the cup or mug. The handles fold down for easy transportation and ensures your strainer will fit a variety of sizes of cups or pots. It is perfect for all sorts of teas, even the finest blends. Very reasonably priced at under $10 NZD.
Charity Tea prides itself on making a positive impact socially, environmentally and climatically. This is shown with the sourcing of organic ingredients, using biodegradable packaging that can be composted, recycled or refilled. Charity Tea measured and offset at least 120% of their carbon footprint for all business activity in 2019 with certified carbon credits. They are committed to achieving this again moving forward and actively support the Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project in Southland, New Zealand. Charity Tea recommends composting all of your used tea leaves once you have finished enjoying them – give them back to Mother Nature.
