CALM BUDDHA BLEND Sips by BUDDHA TEAS
Drink in the essence of tranquility. This caffeine-free blend features sustainably harvested pure herbs that help reduce stress and create a luxurious relaxing experience.
Born in the UK, Buddha Teas founder John Boyd grew up immersed in the culture of tea. After moving to the US in 2006, he realized that his unadulterated tea choices were limited. With a desire to create an expanded selection for tea lovers seeking purity like himself, John became inspired to develop a tea company to fill the gap. He approached his longtime business partner, entrepreneur Nicholas Marier, they gathered an exceptional team, and Buddha Teas was born.
Buddha Teas is all about clean and truth - their teas are crafted without any artificial or even natural flavorings. The name Buddha Teas came into being out of the intention to reflect a philosophy that espouses living life in harmony with the world. Simplicity, generosity, and compassion, a company devoted to offering teas that support consumer and planetary health and healing.

ARAVA CALM Sips by SHALVATEA
Part of the ancient Incense Route connecting the Middle East with Africa, the Arava Valley is home to a delicate array of aromatic and hearty herbs nestled far below sea level. This blend is a delicious mix of fragrant herbs, perfect before bed or for an upset stomach, or whenever you need a cup of relaxation.
ShalvaTea was founded in 2014 by David Ross. While earning his Master in Forestry from Yale University, he took a U-turn and decided to travel to Israel after the devastating Mt. Carmel wildfires of 2010. While spending a summer researching the causes of, and potential solutions to, these kinds of fires, he stumbled across an abundance of native aromatic herbs, bringing them home to drink as relaxing teas after days in the field. After completing his masters, he returned to Israel on a Fulbright Fellowship to finish his research, continuing with his herbal concoctions until he realized that this was his real passion!
Each ShalvaTea blend carries the name of a different ecological region in Israel, with freshly dried herbs inspired by the array of plants that are found growing wild across these ancient landscapes. These herbs have been combined in unique blends, with the aim of capturing the calming shalva (meaning "peace" or "calm" in Hebrew) essence of each landscape and bringing it straight into your cup of tea!
