So here goes:
First lesson: Peek on the back of your latest tea purchase…is there “flavorings” or “extracts” listed at all? No matter if the word organic or all natural is in front of these tell-tale terms. What DOES matter is that this means you are no longer drinking pure tea. You are drinking tea that has been flavored with over processed agents or alcoholic extracts(and yes,these could have a “natural” base…but think of all the “natural” things of every day life that we would NEVER consider steeping in hot water and drinking for an afternoon pick-me-up). Worse yet, the big guys get huge batches of tea, SPRAY flavorings, add a few pretty fruit pieces, and make a TON of money.
Hmmm…maybe they ARE on to something.
Just Kidding. My father raised me with integrity…Back to the point, where CAN one find pure tea, with no added flavors, natural OR artificial? Its difficult. So I started blending, and eventually marketing, my own blends. Check it out: www.organictravelerstea.com The place to go for pure tea blended only with organic ingredients.
Sip in Peace!
