Give the Gift of Wellness with Silk Road Tea

unnamed

Vancouver, B.C., November 1, 2017: Head to Silk Road Tea this holiday season and choose from an extensive range of gifts that are good for both well-being and for the planet.

Silk Road Tea’s Vancouver store has an extensive selection of teas and beauty products that are all 100% organic, vegan friendly, and additive and gluten-free. Wrapped in beautiful zero-waste packaging, they are the perfect gifts for every Christmas list.

“Make health a priority as the stresses of colds, parties and Christmas shopping start to take their toll,” says Silk Road Tea founder, tea master and Canada’s ‘Queen of Tea’, Daniela Cubelic. “Our Vancouver store offers a sanctuary for the gifting season; shop for everyone on your list, from co-workers, business associates, friends and every family member, while stocking up on wellness teas and remedies to ensure you not just survive but thrive this holiday and into the new year.”

With over 500,000 tonnes of waste generated from gift-wrapping each year, give wisely with Silk Road Tea’s reusable signature red gift boxes, hand-made paper pouches (crafted from recycled paper by a women’s co-operative) and tea canisters (refill at the store with your favourite tea).

From stocking stuffers to complete skincare regimes, here are some favourites for Christmas gifting:

 

Inspired by the natural beauty of BC’s west coast, and packaged in a beautiful, re-usable handmade paper pouch, this sampler contains four teas. BC blueberries, cranberries, rosehips and elderberries are infused into aromatic black tea, along with currants, raisins and hibiscus, to create a dazzling blend for Mystic Rainforest. Seamist is an enticing mix of local mint and seaweed with a light zesty note that is reminiscent of fresh sea air. Angelwater is an oasis of locally grown rose blossoms, lavender, red clover, spearmint and elderflowers, and Quench is an electrolyte rich, anti-inflammatory wellness blend.

Wellness Tea Gift Box ($63.96 for four / $95.94 for six) 

Packaged in an eco-friendly red gift box, this selection of expertly blended teas is designed to soothe, comfort and uplift. The four tea assortment contains: Lullaby Tea (for soothing sleep), BeauTEAful Skincare Tea (for a healthy complexion), Quench (replenishing) and Happy (uplifting, stress-reliever). The six tea assortment also includes Detox Tea and Winter Warrior blends.

This four tea set (Chocolate Panda, Candy Cane, Angelwater and Lullaby) come with an adorable Loch Ness Monster tea strainer and recipe ideas that transform them into yummy tea hot chocolates and other festive, child-friendly combinations. All teas are free of all the things kids should avoid – no artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. They are also gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and herbal (caffeine-free).

This essential kit of mini roll-on remedies fits into your bag as an emergency dose to calm, de-stress, balance and boost moods. Each kit is presented in a beautiful handmade paper pouch and contains Allergy & Hay Fever Defense, Cold & Flu Ninja, Happy Mood & Stress Management Remedy, Headache and Hangover and Sweet Dreams aromatherapy roll-ons. Going on a winter vacation? These are perfect to tuck into carry on bags.

Give the gift of a better skincare regime, beautifully packed in a signature Silk Road Tea gift box. The Deluxe Skincare Collection contains the entire line of fresh, organic skincare products, including powerful treatment serums and BeauTEAful Skincare Tea – because a healthy complexion starts within. Created in British Columbia with premium, quality, organic ingredients and no artificial fragrances, dyes or chemical preservatives.
