Teatulia Raises a Cup and Funds for First Descents
As part of Teatulia and First Descents ongoing partnership, the Denver-based organic tea company has launched First Descents Energy Tea Wrap. USD $1 from every specialty tea canister purchased online will be donated to First Descents to help provide life-changing, outdoor adventures for young adults impacted by cancer.
“We’re excited to partner with Teatulia, a company that has already shown their dedication to giving back through their work in Bangladesh,” says First Descents founder, Brad Ludden. “Their Energy Teas are the perfect fit for First Descents and provide our community with a natural source of energy for our ongoing adventures.”
Teatulia creates its organic Energy Tea by infusing its tea leaves with Eleuthero Root, a centuries-old energizing herb that helps the body perform optimally, recover faster, and adapt to stressful conditions. There are three different types of Energy Teas available – Energy Red (tart, yet sweet), Energy Green (tropically refreshing) and Energy Black (sweet, spicy, invigorating).
Each canister will be shipped in an eco-friendly First Descents-themed wrap along with tips for hot and cold brewing. With minimal packaging and no tags, strings or staples on the compostable tea bags, Teatulia’s environmentally friendly canisters reduce overall ecological impact. The company says that because it uses less packaging, shipping is free.
“First Descents is on a mission to help extend the healing power of adventure to the 70,000 young adults who are diagnosed with cancer each year,” says Linda Appel Lipsius, CEO and founder of Denver, Colorado-based Teatulia. “Their work is truly life-changing, which is why we are so proud to have an ongoing partnership with the programme. We are excited to have the opportunity to raise funds using our organic energising tea and look forward to continuing our support of their mission in the months and years ahead.”
In addition to the donation that will be made to First Descents from each canister purchased, customers will also be supporting Teatulia’s mission to do good for the land, the people and the environment. Teatulia’s tea garden is an organic farming co-op that has lifted more than 3,000 women out of poverty and regenerated more than 3,000 acres of farmland.
Teatulia’s teas and herbs are sourced directly from the company’s USDA-certified organic tea garden in Northern Bangladesh, and are never touched by chemical pesticides or fertilisers.
First Descents provides outdoor adventures for young adults impacted by cancer that empower them to climb, paddle, and surf beyond their diagnosis, reclaim their lives, and connect with others doing the same. Through outdoor adventures, skills development and local community creation, FD helps improve the long-term survivorship of young adults impacted by cancer.
