Celebrate World Bee Day with us by making this delicious recipe!
Why are these friendly pollinators important to our cause? Bees are instrumental to our global ecosystem, and as we source of pure loose-leaf teas directly from small farmers and producers around the world with an ethical and clean practice, the health of the ecosystem directly affects each harvest in terms of yield and quality. Therefore, it is our mission to help preserve this ecosystem through our support of organizations that promotes an awareness of bees as a fundamental element in the agricultural industry, as well as sustaining the well-being of the bee population.
