Teatime benefit brews!
All new tea blends I have crafted over the past few years have been designed to highlight the benefits and nutrition of native and locally-thriving plants. Its my vision to create a line from our farmer and wild-harvester community to the greater market through Goodness Tea’s offerings.
Presently, I don’t have all the time, ma’am-power or processing equipment needed to source local 100%, but we are working on it! So for now I have found another way to benefit area farmers and our greater local community: by linking blends to donations for some of my favorite area nonprofits.
We will be now be upcharging the following blends by $1, and donating the proceeds to nonprofits we love. There are a few more mostly-local blends we can add to this list. Is there an Olympic Peninsula philanthropy you love that we should help raise money for? Please email to let us know.
