So You've Heard of Seasonal Eating...Have You Heard of Seasonal Sipping?
At Westholme, we care about the whole tea drinking experience – the taste, the culture, the source, the stories, and pure enjoyment in every cup.
We also know that for over 5000 years tea has been utilized as a medicine.
Tea has been part of holistic advancement of well-being and counteraction of illness since ancient times. Did you know that there used to be doctors who worked only with the tea plant?
While we certainly are not herbal doctors or clinical herbalists, we are tea drinkers. We can attest from our own experience (and testimonials of customers!) that there are many benefits in the right cup.
Recent scientific and technological abilities to isolate constituents and explain molecular level mechanics of ancient and traditional knowledge systems can testify to the positive effects of a daily steep.
