As we steadily creep into autumn nothing brings about that cozy, warm feeling quite like a cup of tea. The only thing that could make sipping a hot cup of tea even better is doing so while supporting a great company.
Tea Drops was founded in 2015 with a desire to create a more environmentally friendly and high quality tea experience. Women founded and led, Tea Drops focuses on sustainability, fair trade, and organic harvesting to ensure top quality products for their consumers. Each Tea Drop produces 15% less waste than a traditional tea bag. On top of reducing waste, Tea Drops also donates a year’s supply of clean water through the Thirst Project for every box sold. To enjoy Tea Drops, simply drop one of the ground and pressed tea shapes into a cup of hot water, stir, and sip away! At House of Nutrition we stock a variety of flavors such as Rose Earl Grey and Sweet Peppermint, sold in packs or individually so you can try them all. Come in and reward yourself with all the benefits drinking tea can provide while also supporting an inspiring and sustainable company.
We also have premium organic teas that have been utilized for centuries for an uplifting experience with balanced energy. Ancestral green tea (Camellia Sinesis) contains an amino acid called theanine, which promotes relaxation while maintaining alertness. Theanine promotes healthy cognitive function as well as healthy vascular function through this relaxing effect. These properties are what make green tea beneficial as stress management.
It is recommended to consume 2-5 cups per day (for those without a sensitivity to caffeine).
Matcha differs from green tea as it is the whole tea leaves finely ground and consumed. This makes a serving more potent versus steeping the leaves. It is said for every five prepared cups of green tea, one prepared cup of matcha will suffice.
All green tea is rich in antioxidants that combat inflammation and pain as well as defend against aging and free radial damage. Chlorophyll, also present, is what gently detoxifies the body of toxins while balancing alkalinity and gives this tea its rich green color. With all these benefits, tea is an easy way to add something healthy to your daily routine. Come and see us at the House of Nutrition to pick up your favorite teas, or add some new varieties to your collection.
