This Humble Yogini has been fantasizing for the past year about a Tea Company of her very own! Where does one start with something like this? Well, at the beginning. I have been a tea o'holic for about 2 decades. First with my lovely mother in-laws PG Tips (black builders tea) in place of my morning coffee when visiting her in the North of England. I started to get a little curious about the ritual of High Tea or Afternoon Tea. I found that when I would go to England I was planning everything around how many High Tea's I could get in during the trip. I realized that I had a very healthy appreciation for tea and I was developing a real taste for good black tea.
Fast forward to today, I decided after my tea habit was entering into the world of obsessive that I should just open my own company and have complete control over the teas that I would want to imbibe in. I know this sounds a little extreme but hear me out. I was finding it hard to find a good cup of tea that had not been fiddled with and by that I mean additives... lots of flavoring. I wanted an organic, fair trade, sustainable, freshly hand picked cup of tea with nothing added. And if anyone was going to add anything to my tea it was going to be me adding milk and sugar.
It was sheer karma that I came across a single estate tea company in Sri Lanka that not only fit all the criteria that I was looking for to start my new tea company but also came through on the taste as well as the cost. I really felt that this was the Universe saying go for it. So I took the leap of faith and took home 20 pounds of the highest quality Ceylon Tea that Sri Lanka has to offer. It was just hand picked in January. I still have 40 pounds on a boat from India due to arrive in August. All going to plan.
I can honestly say that when I started out on my yogic path I did not know I would end up opening an online tea shoppe. The world bring us what we need when we need it! I hope you swing by the HYTEACo.Com and let me know what you think. I will be bringing in more tea as and when I get it from the grower.
