Make Every Day Earth Day!

Hard to believe it is over 50 years since the concept of Earth Day was introduced.  On April 22, 1970, about 20 million Americans took to the streets in answer to Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson's call for a "national teach-in on the environment".  His partners in this effort were Republican Congressman Pete McCloskey and Denis Hayes from Harvard.

Fast forward to 1990 when a group of environmental leaders requested Denis Hayes to lead another big campaign. Many of us remember that day when 200 million people worldwide in 141 countries participated in efforts to boost environmental issues globally.  In 1995, Senator Nelson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom - the highest honor given to civilians in the United States - for his leading role as the founder of Earth...

3 Rules to Storing Tea

Tea is a hardy item.  It keeps well. Nevertheless, you have to follow some simple rules in maintaining its flavor and integrity. The most basic is - no glass jars. If you are buying your tea from a tea shop that keeps its tea in see-through glass jars, change your tea vendor! For proper tea - Black, Green, Oolong, White - tea must be stored in a container that follows these three basic rules:

  • No light
  • No air
  • No moisture

Our tea canisters are ideal.  They are food-grade with a tight-fitting lid, easy to use, easy to clean. And as you can see they stay true to the objective - no light, no air and no moisture.

Tisanes & herbs may be stored in glass...
