Today tea enthusiasts everywhere can experience ancient Armenian tea culture as Authentic Teas begins distribution of its wild-crafted herbal teas, organically harvested and prepared in the highlands of the Caucasian mountains. Authentic Teas is a new boutique tea company working directly with indigenous tea crafters to bring a taste of Armenia to the world.
David Richardson, CFO of Authentic Teas, points out the purity of their teas and the way Authentic Teas operates makes them unique. "Unlike conventional tea producers, our Authentic Teas are grown and sustainably harvested in the wild; free of chemicals or environmentally harmful production methods." Harvesting and blending is done entirely by hand, using traditional methods that have been followed for thousands of years. The result, says Richardson, is an outstanding tea experience unparalleled by any other tea in the market.
Tea drinkers want to know more than just a name brand, they want to know the story behind their favorite indulgences so Authentic Teas uses its website to showcase the story of the people and the ancient tea culture of Armenia. "As an avid tea drinker, I was captivated with the story of Armenian tea," says Richardson. Herbs like oregano, thyme, Linden flowers and mint grow wild in the Armenian highlands.
Tea crafting takes place in indigenous village areas, where most of the economic benefits are returned to local artisans, helping ensure that a lifestyle and culture grounded in two thousand years of tradition continues. Authentic Teas supplier and master tea artisan, Dr. Armen Mehrabyan, pointed out that the harvest and tea preparation is carried out under the strictest observation of Armenian traditions. "We follow the tea crafting practices found in ancient Armenian manuscripts," he explains.
Richardson notes that tea preferences are rapidly shifting. As consumers develop more sophisticated tea palates, demand is growing for healthful, high-quality tea experiences. "Armenian tea, with its millennia of tea crafting excellence, offers the perfect match for consumers wanting an unforgettable tea steeped in authenticity and purity." Authentic Teas offers four teas that are USDA certified organic while two more are made with 95% organic ingredients.
