When you think of tea, brands like Lipton, Harney & Sons and The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. may undoubtedly cross your mind. And when you think of herbal tea, most people will think of the Chinese herbal teas that you will either love or dislike. If your idea of tea has been one that tea must either be black, green, or the kind of Chinese cooling tea, then you’ll probably change your mind after this, because Nilufer Tea brings you another kind of herbal tea that is beautiful, healthful and delicious.
Nilufer Tea is founded by Leah Yo. The name was inspired by Leah’s ex-boss when she was still working in marketing in the corporate environment. Leah’s ex-boss was an elegant lady, blooming with grace yet maintaining a sense of professionalism in her line of work. ‘Nilufer’ means ‘water lily’ in Persian, so it is no wonder why Leah attributed the beautiful pink flower to her. After all, the water lily is a resilient flower that exudes a unique classiness, much like her ex-boss.
With an outstanding role model in mind, Nilufer Tea was born.
Nilufer Tea aims to bring quality herbal tea to everyone. Each teabag is handcrafted with woven silk and filled with a unique blend of flowers and herbs. Every recipe is created carefully, every ingredient comes from ethical and organic sources, and every teabag is filled with thoughtfulness for those who are consuming the beverage.
As the ingredients are organic, they do not have pesticides laced within any buds or flowers. You can be rest assured that you are consuming tea that contains the essence of only the finest flowers and herbs. In fact, you can even consume the ingredients, like the dried lemon and dried strawberry, in the teabag if you are adventurous and curious.
One of the more well-loved ingredient that Nilufer Tea uses has got to be the dried lemon. Why are they so outstanding and why is Nilufer Tea so proud of it? After all, although lemons are healthy in theory, they can be difficult to consume due to its sharp sour taste. The truth of the matter is that the dried lemon originates from Setouchi, a region in Japan that has such ample sunlight and fresh air that even the lemons capture the rich essence of the environment. This gives the lemon a unique taste that consist of a balance between sweetness and tartness. The sweetness makes the lemon easier to swallow and the tartness is mellow but still characteristic of a lemon. That is why the lemons in the cute sachets of tea can actually be enjoyed by itself as well.
Nilufer Tea sources the lemons ethically from the small local farms in Setouchi. So every year, during the harvesting season, the fresh lemons are harvested and dried to bring to you the pretty and cute heart-shaped lemons. So if you want to experience the taste of fresh dried quality lemons, follow us on our Instagram, facebook and our website to keep yourself up to date with our heart-shaped lemons pre-orders.
