As an amalgamation of the learnings we have accumulated through making this documentary, we created a series of sustainable Botanical Powders.
“We didn’t want individuals to have to choose between something that tastes 'good' or something that is 'good'. This product is both. Each ingredient in this new line was selected based on its health properties, and through the art of blending, each ingredient moves from being purely nutritious, to delicious."
TEALEAVES CO-FOUNDER & CEO
We began by making unprecedented changes to our packaging and ingredient selection process, pivoting based on our new understanding of an increasingly beleaguered environment.
The Botanical Powders feature ingredients chosen for their health properties and environmental prowess — such as ashwagandha, beetroot, moringa leaf, and dandelion root powder. By working with leading experts in food, nutrition, and planetary health, including Berkeley Open Source Food and University of British Columbia Botanical Garden, we blended this innovative line of botanical powders as the foundation to a daily ritual taking you from morning to night. Carefully and consciously crafted, these blends invigorate from the inside out, while safeguarding the plants and botanicals used to make them.
THESE BOTANICAL POWDERS ARE DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE THE DRINKER'S DAY:
To kickstart the day with calm and focused energy.
Soul-soothing hot cocoa packed with natural antioxidants.
Tension-relieving and reinvigorating for a restful downtime.
Extensive interdisciplinary research was implemented on the impacts of sourcing wild and foraged ingredients for both personal and planetary health. On the consultation of Berkeley Open Source Food, whom TEALEAVES has been working with since 2019, the new blends include wild foods, such as dandelion, as they require low energy inputs to be grown and have low carbon footprints. The Botanical Powders provide rich flavor, color, and wellness benefits when added to a daily ritual. From lattes to smoothies, to cocktails and even salad dressings — the possibilities are endless!
The botanical powders are packaged using circular design principles with as little cost to the earth as possible. The outer tube is 100% recyclable and every element inside the tube can be composted at home — including the pouch inside which is made of NatureFlex, a plant-based material. Nothing in the product will go to waste.
