TAS Country : April 28th 2011
Friday, April 29, 2011 Tasmanian Country 19 Cuppa brims with calm and healing We support the Australian tea industry as we have the Daintree tea BENEFITS: The Art of Tea owner Samantha Brown knows the effects of tea. Above, teas from the company's range. Pictures: NIKKI DAVIS-JONES EMMA HOPE OVER the past 11 years The Art of Tea has grown from a small family-run market stall to a professional business that now produces over 100 varieties of tea.Exhibiting at Agfest for the second year in a row, the business will be promoting the health benefits of tea. ''Teas are well known to have high levels of antioxidants,'' said Art of Tea owner Samantha Brown. ''Tea is also known to reduce stress and anxiety. ''We have specific herbal blends for helping people sleep or with arthritis, we've got a stress less tea and ones to help with digestive issues. ''We have a range of specific herbals to target specific health problems. ''We have also got a range of black and green teas which are good for general calm and well- being.'' Mrs Brown said the company sold their tea through many different outlets. ''We supply wholesale, retail and online and we still have the stall at Salamanca Market.'' The company imports in- gredients from some of the most famous tea-producing countries. ''I source my ingredients from all over the world, Sri Lanka, India, China. We do support the Australian tea industry as we have the Australian Daintree tea.'' They company uses Tasman- ian produce where possible. ''The Tasmanian Lavender Tea has lavender from the Nabowla lavender farm near Scottsdale.'' In August last year Art of Tea launched a special tea to help a local cause. ''We're very proud of our Tassie Devil Tea. For every tea sold we donate 50c to the Tas- manian Devil Appeal.'' Some lesser known teas are the most consumed varieties. ''The current favourite is a French earl grey, which is a black tea. Our organic pepper- mint is quite popular too.'' Taking part in Agfest is a highlight of the year, Mrs Brown said. ''Our enjoyment of Agfest was made by simply being able to talk to people face to face.''
