Drinking tea is a ritual for me. I love taking the time to steep tea leaves in hot water and watch it turn to a particular hue – both a luxury and necessity in my day. I recently discovered the tasty and healthful Namasthé teas at a little health food store in Tofino.
Blended by Whistler based Isabelle Ranger, a master herbalist who custom blended herbal medicinal teas for years, the delicious teas combine whole leaf organic teas with ancient herbal wisdom.
My favourites so far include EchinaChai, a chai that soothes and warms at the same time and the delicious Mountain Mint.
While Namasthé’s FSC certified eco-packaging, focus on service and community action and support of organic farming make it one of the greenest teas in the world, let your tastebuds guide you.
You can find Namasthé teas in Vancouver at Capers, Cambi, Meinhardts and Nestors Markets. To learn more, check out Isabelle’s blog at:
