More About Mhaidiva:
Mhaidiva, the Lady of Tea, is the personification of everything that makes life worth living. She is the muse giving everyone who drinks her tea the gift of beauty, health, peace, harmony and creative thinking. She speaks to you in haiku, seventeen syllable poems written in three lines of 5-7-5. She shares philosophy, or lessons of life, expressed in one breath. She uses images of tea, evoking a mysterious solitude and meditative presence with romantic images of austere beauty.
The symbol for Mhaidiva is derived from the letters “Aaw” and is created from the gesture of “opening lips invitingly”. An obvious choice for the design of our Mhaidiva logo.
I recently discovered mhai diva. I am very impressed with their dedication to Fair Trade and Sustainability. I will touch more on that after writing a bit more about this tea.
I was super excited to receive a box full of boxed teas from The Netherlands not too long ago. Inside was this nifty little number. It’s mhai diva’s Grand Earl Grey. It’s a nice bagged Earl Grey. The Black Tea is strong but the Bergamot isn’t overly strong. It doesn’t taste like it’s in a bag! And I like that! This is a flavorful and convenient EG.
As I mentioned above – mhai diva – is both Fair Trade and Organic.
Mhaidiva is proud to present a range of both Fairtrade and Organic certified tea. The premium quality tea is sustainable and for this reason selected and produced with respect for people and the planet.
The various tea blends originate from the highlands of Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and the rooibos tea is from South Africa. The teas are packed in environmental-friendly envelopes. They are available in boxes of 100 pieces.
We flavoured the tea with only natural, liquid flavours to establish a maximum tea-tasting pleasure.

99% of the Mhaidiva tea is picked by women at the tea plantations, the women control the picking of the tea leafs with the fingertips in perfection. Mhaidiva is made by 100% Orthodox picked tea, qualitative the best way of picking.
In addition to having some really good bagged teas that are both organic and fair trade mhai diva also supports Net4Kids

Servings Per Container:
There are several reasons I was excited to try this tea from Village Tea Company! First…anything with SASSY in the name…I’m game! But more importantly ACAI. I have had many failures with Acai flavored teas. TOO MANY. This tea was very different! This is the Acai Flavored Tea I have been searching for!
Sassy Green Tea with Acai from Village Tea Company smells a bit like JUICY JUICE – at least that is what first came to mind when I initially sniffed it – or a fruity wine. When I sipped this I could still taste the sweet-green tea but pair it with fruity goodness – and there you have it! I can taste Acai, Orange, and Peach but can barely taste the ginger, chilies, and cloves which is completely fine with me. I think the reason for them – and the reason it works – is to make it so the fruit flavors are not over powering or bitter or too tarty. I think it also contributes to the lingering yet warming affect it has long after the sip is complete!
Another thing I would love to point out about Village Tea Company is…
Village Tea Company’s dedication extends beyond our teas to a commitment to preserve the beautiful world from which our tea originates. Our sustainability concept aims to minimize our carbon footprint to leave as little an impact on the environment as possible.
From floor to ceiling, the Village Tea Company aims to use recycled or reused materials for our furniture, fixtures, and decorations, with many items and materials coming from the local Dallas area. Even our tea cans are made from 100% recycled materials, and all of this is just the start of our promise to the environment.
