'Compassion' Darjeeling Tea
A flight to medium-bodied black tea, with fruity and floral notes. Darjeeling tea is often called the champagne of teas, and this batch is no exception.
This tea is rich in health-boosting antioxidants, and uses only hand-picked, organic and fair trade leaves.
Our teas come from Tea Tibet, a non-profit organisation who invest all proceeds into educational projects and orphanages for Tibetan children. Each box contains 16 teabags, each individually wrapped in recycled paper.
Every box comes complete with an insightful quote from His Holiness the Dalai Lama:
Three Main Commitments in Life:
"On the level of a human being, my first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline.
As a religious practitioner, my second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding among the world's major religious traditions. Despite philosophical difference, all major world religions have the same potential to create good human beings.
I'm a Tibetan and carry the name of the Dalai Lama. Tibetans place their trust in me. Therefore, my third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. I have a responsibility to act as the spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice."
