Not only is tea yummy and refreshing, it’s great for you! Tea is packed with antioxidants. It’s said to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks, aid in weight loss, boosts your immune system, is said to help fight cancer. It soothes the digestive system, and can give you a pleasant little mental lift.
Jojo Tea began when one of the founders, Michael Ortiz, discovered the impact and deeply rooted history tea has on people through studying yoga and meditation. He realized that this richness and satisfaction of tea should be widely shared. JoJo Tea is unique because the founding partners took it into their own hands to travel Asia to get involved with the process of how their product is grown and made with local tea farmers. Besides being involved every step of the way, JoJo Tea makes sure customers sip on their tea knowing the components, origin and the history of each cup.
Their mission is to keep educating and guiding the food & beverage community as well as the everyday tea drinker about the quality and beauty in a moment of tea. One of the company’s main objective is to allow a moment of time to just relax and focus on the tea a person is sipping on.
If you missed the event, no worries! You can still experience the quality, delicious taste of the teas we sampled at Jackson Hall. Everspring Oolong (https://goo.gl/FsNA6y) was the first tea sampled.
This tea is unique because it is an all-female team who produces it, and there are no fertilizers or pesticides used in the process. The other tea sampled was Yunnan Gold (https://goo.gl/7127eL) which is a black tea. Yunnan is a special place because it was the birth place of tea, which was over 4,000 years ago.
