Eco Teas' Tulsi Source

Eco Teas proudly source their tulsi from small organic farms in southern India. Their tulsi tea is actually a blend of three varieties of tulsi, making it TRI-DOSHIC, there are three components to the human metabolism. These components are similar to the elements in classical Greek medicine. In Ayurveda, they are called Doshas. The doshas are: Vana (wind), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (earth). Maintaining a good balance of the three doshas is believed to lead to overall good health and wellbeing. There are also three varieties to tulsi, and each one is considered specifically helpful for each dosha. Vana tulsi supports Vana, Krishna tulsi supports Pitta, and Rama tulsi supports Kapha. A "tri-doshic" blend of the three tulsi varieties, such as the one they provide, is the best choice for maintaining overall well-being.

Eco Teas Mission

  • Support organic agriculture, fair trade, and sustainability in all they do.
  • Provide healthy, delicious world teas.
  • Minimize packaging through cutting-edge compostable materials.
  • Encourage the transition to loose tea.
  • Provide access to natural products for all through affordable, fair pricing.

Reforestation Program
The subtropical province of Misiones in northeastern Argentina is about the size of the state of Massachusetts. Although it comprises only 1% of Argentina's landmass, it produces 70% of Argentina's timber, and it is home to 40% of Argentina's biodiversity. Misiones contains the largest surviving remnant of the Interior Atlantic forest, which once stretched from southern Brazil to Paraguay. Misiones is also the source of Eco Teas Yerba Mate. One of the many beautiful things about yerba mate - in addition to its great taste and amazing health benefits - is that it can be grown organically in the shade of a thriving forest canopy. Food crops and fruit tress can be interplanted with the yerba mate trees. Yerba mate can form the basis of a sustainable local economy. However, most yerba mate is grown on large plantations. The forest is logged off, never to be replanted. Weeds are controlled with herbicides. Workers are paid low wages to harvest the herb from these large estates.

They started Eco Teas seven years ago with a clear set of intentions: to promote organic agriculture; to provide healthy high-quality teas at great prices; and to model a better way to do business by incorporating sustainability and social responsibility into the bottom line equation. Working together with universities, nonprofits, their customers, and their family farm partners, they are planting thousands of native trees on their yerba mate farm each year. They believe this project will serve as a beacon for other small farmers throughout the region, and the world beyond. They'd like to express their deepest gratitude to you - their customers - for choosing to support them over the years. Your participation makes their efforts possible.

Energy & Water Commitment
They offset their office energy use with 100% clean, renewable wind power through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. For every ounce of water you use to make their tea, they work in partnership with BEF to put an ounce of water back into Evans Creek, an important habitat for salmon in southern Oregon.

Green Packaging
Their tea bag boxes are made from recycled paperboard and printed with soy-based inks. Inside the box you'll find 24 individually wrapped tea bags. The clear cellophane wrappers protecting the tea bags may look like typical petroleum-based plastic, but they're actually made from a plant-based, compostable bio-plastic. Inside this wrapper is a tea bag made from unbleached, glue-free filter paper. The tag is printed on recyclable paper with soy-based inks. To avoid using any staples, the unbleached string connecting the tag to the bag is tied with an ingenious knotting system. All of this material is totally compostable, including, of course, the certified organic and fair trade tea itself.

Their new loose tea line is made from 100% tree-based, compostable packaging. Their Pure Yerba Mate Five Pounds Loose bag is recyclable. They are currently in the process of transitioning their One Pound Bag of Yerba Mate to compostable material.

Suggested Use
Hot: To release the full flavor and benefits of tulsi, steep one tea bag in 8 oz. of 200 degree F water for 10 minutes.

Iced: Tulsi requires hot water to release its beneficial properties and flavor. Brew hot tea at double strength, then add ice.

More Options: Try drinking Eco Teas loose tulsi with a tea filter straw (bombilla).
