Inspiration Behind The Teas in Our September Box

Senakw Village

A herbal blend of Hibiscus, Rosehips, Black Currant, Cranberry, Blueberry, Elderberry, Lemongrass, Rooibos

Senakw, or Snauq, is the ancient name for False Creek. If you aren't familiar with Vancouver, False Creek is a short inlet that separates the downtown core. Senakw Village was located where present day Vanier Park is. It was once a salmon gathering and berry picking place. For the owners of The Capilano, the red colour of their Senakw Village blend is evokes visions of the red of the salmon and the land covered in berries. It brings thought of a strong traditional food source. Traditionally, the berries would have been mashed, dried and made into berry cakes. The berry cakes look similar to the Senakw Village blend. Michelle and Paisley, the owners of The Capilano have added some global ingredients, like Rooibos, to the tea to kick up the flavour and add even more health benefits to the nutritious berries.

Roots and Chai

A green tea blend of Organic Mao Jian Green Tea with Elder Berries.

Roots and Chai was created along The Capilano owner's quest for nutrition - as a way to incorporate dandelion root into something delicious she could have everyday. Michelle has been drinking dandelion root for a long time, loved the herb and quite simply, wanted to drink it more. So, she added beetroot for minerals and natural sweetness. We love this quote on their website by an unknown author: “When you look at a field of dandelions you can either see a hundred weeds or a hundred wishes.”

Not everything can have an elaborate story behind it! This is one of the simple blends we love to highlight. Sometimes less is more and focus is best kept on the tea itself. In this case, Mao Jian green tea. 'Elderberries' don't just sound wise, they're also high in antioxidants and add a nice subtle colour. - adding it, adding some colour. Newbies to green tea will like this blend as a stepping stone to drinking pure green tea. Nothing too crazy, no artificial flavour, all the benefits of green tea.
