Teatulia Hearts Arbor Teas
One of the great things about the World Tea Expo is meeting all kinds of new people that share a love of great tea. This year, it was our great pleasure to meet the folks of Arbor Teas. It might seem a bit odd that we’re fawning over a could be competitor, but Arbor Teas tickled our fancy from day one.
As we initially started to design our packaging, one of the most important things was that it reflect our core values – providing a great organic, premium tea while sustaining our land and people. This is when we ran across Arbor Teas of Ann Arbor Michigan. This husband and wife team have developed a solid foundation for a fun business that provides some of the finest organic and fair trade teas, but it doesn’t stop there. To further their belief in making a smaller “footprint” whenever possible, they developed an earth friendly package for their teas.
In the coming days (yes, just days) Tetulia will share with you our brand new packaging. You will see a completely compostable outer container, a recyclable inner freshness protector, and a biodegradable pyramid tea bag. While we were on this track all along, it was Arbor Teas that truly inspired us to go forward with it. Next time you’re shopping for teas, take a moment to consider what you are really buying and what happens to it when you get down to your last bit of tea.
Thank you Arbor Teas!
