Usually when one thinks of meditation, the eyes are closed and the expression is serene. Here is Ananda to show us a different example of meditation and emptying the mind. Ananda is exuberant, lively, questioning and listening. He is natural; opening his arms to give fully of himself and be receptive of all. The name Ananda means bliss and joy, and he wishes that all living beings have a sense of their natural state-to be blissful and joyful… sending you on a journey with your eyes and heart wide open….one sip at a time…

Who They Are
At Shantea are a group of longtime friends; Acupuncturists, Yoga Instructors, Teachers and Holistic Dietary Experts, dedicated to living a life that is based on truth, kindness, discovery, humility, and health.
Shantea grew out of their love of tea and the atmosphere it can create. It was after meals while they were drinking tea that they had the chance to connect and be together. They discovered that for us tea is the "new wine". All of them at Shantea have a yoga and meditation practice that is our source of inspiration, so they decided to develop teas and infusions that support their lifestyle.
They began by doing research into the healing effects of teas from all over the world. They have traveled to India, Nepal, Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, Turkey, China and Japan, Europe and South America.
Based on their findings, their herbal knowledge, and lots of experimentation, they developed tasteful and healthful teas and infusions that support wellness. They use only the finest organic ingredients, USDA certified, and are committed to bringing you these unique specially blended teas and infusions that work to gently unlock the healing power of your body.
They hope you try their organic tea blends, and find the ones that suit your needs. Please enjoy them with your friends or as you relax and connect with yourself. They would truly love it if Shantea could bring you a sense of stillness and peace.
