We discovered some time ago that Tobacco offerings are not part of the Inuit culture, and therefor the question of what to gift an Inuit Elder has often come up. We did some research, contacted Inuit organizations, and also asked several Inuit Elders directly what the most appropriate gifts would be. On the top of the list was black tea, a commodity highly favoured by early Inuit traders, and a taste still savoured to this day. Our northern relations have gifted us with so many wonderful medicines, such as Labrador Tea, Cloudberry, Crowberry, Juniper, and much more. To be able to offer them something that they savour from regions beyond theirs is a gift in itself, so it's with great pleasure that we introduce Tealee's Northern Blend Black Tea.
Karen's cousin, Lisa Banville, is the founder of Tealee www.tealee.ca. Karen asked Lisa if she could develop an organic tea blend with Inuit Elders and their particular type of favoured black tea in mind. Lisa did some research, careful chose and personally blended Ceylon Organic Black Tea and Assam TGFOP Organic Black Tea to create an especially delicious and smooth blend. We're so excited to be promoting this wonderful tea that everyone can enjoy.
