This San Francisco-based line of teas is the creation of Jesse Jacobs, a former corporate leader at an Internet company. Instead of getting overly caught up in a daily fast-paced routine, Jesse decided he needed to slow down. Tea was his answer: By simply waiting for the tea leaves to unfurl and steep in water, he felt himself becoming more patient and thoughtful.
In keeping with this philosophy, Jesse sources his teas directly from hardworking tea farmers around the world and uses only organic and natural ingredients.
For the Wellness Kit, he selected three teas:
Ocean of Wisdom Herbal Tea: The red, needle-like leaves of the Rooibos plant, native to South Africa, have been harvested, dried and turned into tea leaves for centuries. The rooibos tea is naturally deep, earthy, sweet and caffeine-free. The addition of ginger, cinnamon, licorice root, clove and pepper adds a dimension of spice and warmth.
Velvet Cacao Pu-Erh Tea: Pu-Erh is a traditional tea native to Yunnan province in China, and, like a fine wine, it is fermented in order to develop its flavor. This tea is sweet, smooth yet complex, blended with cacao, roasted dandelion, real vanilla bean and organic yerba mate.
Jasmine Green Tea: This naturally refreshing and grassy organic green tea comes from a tea farm in Fujian, China, and is highlighted with jasmine flowers. The tea is floral and crisp, with a subtle note of roasted nuttiness.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of tea to 12 ounces of boiled water. Steep for 3-5 minutes. Pour and serve.
Samovar Tea believes that you are what you eat—and drink. Their tea lounges are in San Francisco, and the company focuses on healthy and natural foods from cuisines around the world. Each tea is sourced directly from tea farmers and blended only with organic and natural flavorings, such as real flowers and vanilla bean.
