We are proud to offer an all natural product that starts with sustainable farming practices. We follow the artisan way of making high quality tea. Each batch is small, special and follows a strict 7 step process. Leaves are picked by hand, carefully screened and sorted by trained employees, and slowly withered and then dried to lock in all the health benefits of the whole leaf.

Absolutely. We partnered with independent, certified laboratory for analysis of our olive leaf tea to ensure ORAC score, polyphenol level, and caffeine-free attributes.
Consumers that value fresh food should support local farmers because locally grown food tastes and looks better. Think about this. The logistics of imported food, from field to grocery shelf, can take months. That is months on a ship, dock, warehouse, transportation, and then stocked on the shelf for consumers to purchase. Local food is better for you. The shorter time between field to table, the less likely nutrients will be lost. Also, local farmers preserve open spaces. Even at my ranch, I am being squeezed by industrialization and increased urbanization. There's no doubt my ranch will become an agricultural island in the near future. That makes me sad.
