Our new bags have arrived and we are very excited our fine loose leaf teas will be nestled in these amazing Omni biodegradable bags! They are made of a new bio film with an cool green additive that breaks down the long chain polymers into Water, CO2 and organic bio mass anywhere there are microbes on land or water. What does that mean? It means that the bag is stable in air but as soon as it touches water or soil it activates an enzymes that attracts beneficial microbes that are everywhere in water and soil to break the bag down into organic compounds and humus that is good for the earth.
Our new compostable 0.9 mil bio lined bags made of recycled Kraft paper are approved for home, industrial composting, recycling and if they end up in the landfill they will also breakdown. No special treatment or headaches which means peace of mind and assurance you are part of the sustainable solution.
They take less energy to produce than PLA, OXO or cellophane and are more stable for better self life. This means fresher and greener teas for all you Tea Lovers who enjoy life Off the Beaten Path and want to feel good that your impact on our Earth is minimized. So they can be recycled, all you need to do is remove the tin tie then your can choose to recycle, compost or biodegrade the bag n the landfill. They are also EPA, third party & University tested for heavy metals and toxins once broken down and are well below accepted levels. So humans and pets, worms and insects are safe from harmful residues after composting.

Spring Tips foraging of Douglas Fir ( Pseudotsuga Menziesii) arrived at last to replenish my winter tarnished body and soul.
This winter i started leading a few workshops " TeaCrafting " at the Brew Creek Centre. The Prosci Tea eves are infused with everything tea. Chef Stefan Vagelatos infuses all dishes with Namasthé teas and they have been fabulous! It is amazing how well tea goes with so many foods, ferments and libations. They also serve our teas to guests there a the lodge that hosts private, corporate and wedding groups year round and tucked away just minutes south of Whistler.They we're actually our first ever supporters way back in 2008 as we launched our new tea line.
My mother taught me that respecting the plant and the forest, is just as important as respecting your next door neighbor. Living on this earth comes with the responsibility of treating it was the same respect, and generosity that it gives us.
