CHAI TEA Sips by teapigs

Chai tea

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TEA

Variations of aromatic, spiced, milky tea have been the Indian drink of choice for hundreds of years. This blend encapsulates all the color and vibrancy of India in a cup.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS BRAND

Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006 with one mission – to get people drinking real tea again. They met while working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. The more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realize something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.

teapigs, hailing from the UK, has a "no air, no graces, just fine tea" approach. They have a "mix and match," where you can combine two of your preferred teas at a discount, and "piglets" which let you sample their variety of flavors.

SAFFRON CHAI TEA Sips by TAHMINA

FAVA'S WINTER BLEND  

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TEA

A bold Assam black tea with Indian chai-style spices and Afghan saffron. This whole leaf blend has a robust body with multiple layers of flavor, finished by smooth, delicate notes of saffron.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS BRAND

Tahmina (derived from the Persian word tahm, meaning strong and brave) is an international brand with a vision to export transformational products from different conflict regions of the world. Their maiden project begins in Afghanistan with one of its best luxury items: saffron and saffron-infused teas. Tahmina seeks to connect local farmers and women with international markets, and help develop industries that can be alternatives to the illicit drug industry.

We love Tahmina's mission of bringing positive change to Afghanistan and other parts of the world, by creating opportunities for employment and helping develop industries like saffron. Saffron is internationally recognized as the world's most expensive spice, more expensive than gold by weight. Rich in antioxidants and minerals, saffron is full of health benefits, like being good for depression/anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, and many other ailments. It can also be used in tea, dye, fragrance, and more. Afghanistan's saffron has been named the best in the world, and the industry has immense potential to replace opium farming and help rebuild the Afghan economy. Additionally, 80% of the labor can be done by women, creating new economic opportunities and empowering many women who could not find employment elsewhere.
