Choice Organic Teas, the first exclusively organic tea crafter in the United States and first in the country to introduce Fair Trade Certified™ teas, has partnered with Bastyr University to develop and launch a new line of flavorful, certified organic Wellness Teas. This marks the first time that the renowned natural health university has collaborated with a consumer brand on product development and offered its logo for display on the product. The Wellness Teas are a new line of certified organic, functional teas specially formulated by a master herbalist and faculty member in Botanical Medicine and Ayurvedic Sciences at Bastyr University. The teas were designed to support healthy body functions and enhance wellness, while maintaining Choice Organic Teas’ reputation for great tasting, perfectly balanced teas. The blends are classified as Herbal Dietary Supplements (HDS), indicating that the product has met FDA standards for quality and testing. It also creates opportunities to merchandise the teas in the supplement section in addition to the tea aisle in retail stores. The eight inaugural varieties include: Easy Digest*, Mental Focus*, Breathing Space*, Rest Assured*, Regularity*, Throat Cozy*, Simply Detox*, and Energy Boost*.
