Tea lovers, a new line of organic teas has come your way! Nell and “Pa” Newman have turned in their American Gothic garb for regal robes and scepter for their new distinctive packages for Newman’s Own Organics’ Royal Tea line. “We wanted to add tea to our product line for quite some time, but needed to find a company who has the experience to source and blend the high quality of organic tea we wanted for our customers,” says Nell Newman, company co-founder and president. “We’re delighted to have found the Harris Tea Company. A family run company for the past 67 years, Harris Tea Company has over 200 years of tea procuring and blending experience. They know the tea plantations that our tea is sourced from, so we are able to offer quality organic tea to our consumers at reasonable costs.” Organic Green Tea – 40 count of 2g double chamber tea bags in individual paper envelopes. According to the Tea Association of the USA, Americans consumed well over 50 billion servings of tea in 2006; which is over 2.25 billion gallons. While some drink tea for simple enjoyment, others know that black and green teas contain flavonoids – naturally occurring compounds believed to have antioxidant properties. There is a growing body of international scientific research about tea’s healthful properties and its potential roles in many areas of well-being. For many, however, it just tastes good and is a versatile pick-me-up. From starting the morning with a brisk cup of black tea to iced tea with meals and a cup to relax with later in the day, tea is a perfect day-long beverage throughout the seasons.
