“We are so delighted to return to the Winter Fancy Food Show,” said Kristina Tucker, Minister of Enlightenment and Commerce at The Republic of Tea. “This season, we are introducing a diverse assortment of 14 teas across multiple collections, each with a unique flavor profile and backstory. We are especially excited about the Herbs of Origin, which honors sourcing transparency and shines a spotlight on the many biodynamic and family-run organic farms we partner with around the world. We look forward to connecting with our Citizens (customers) and Embassies (retail outlets) at the show for an opportunity to impart our Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp lifestyle.”

Many global regions have used these nutritional dynamos as a part of their daily diets for centuries – whether for boosting performance, health or longevity. ($14.50/tin)

  • South African Green RooibosOrganic Bush Tea for Well-Being: Rooibos, a unique South African herb, has been cherished since the early 1900s when native Bushmen fermented and sun-dried its needle-like leaves for delicious red tea.

Committed to sustainable practices and holistic management, their biodiversity is believed to increase the nutritional vitality of the soil and plants. This pure, spicy ginger tea is soothing to the digestive system.

The Pacific Northwest is known as one of the world’s most premier growing regions for peppermint. Enjoy this pure tea for its cool aromatics and refreshing flavor.

  • Vietnamese CinnamonOrganic Tea for Warming the Heart: Cinnamon, sustainably harvested from inner tree bark, is well known as a fragrant, warming spice.

  • Egyptian Hibiscus Organic Tea for Ecological Harmony: This premium, 100% Biodynamic® hibiscus is grown on the western banks of the Nile River in Egypt using Biodynamic® practices to enhance the herb’s flavor, nutrition and quality while emphasizing social and economic sustainability.

  • Cold Brew Hibiscus Tangerine Yuzu – This blend showcases yuzu, an aromatic Japanese citrus that tastes like a mix of lemon, grapefruit and lime with floral notes.
