What You'll Get
Today's Groupon is for some cheap tea. Actually, it's for Ineeka Tea, which is some of the highest quality tea out there, and normally it's more expensive ($10 per tin plus shipping), but today we're selling it for cheap - $25 for 3 gorgeous reusable tea tins, including free shipping. The Groupon gets you 3 tins, one each of Chamomile, Darjeeling and Green Limon, or you can get any variety you want by emailing us after you sign up.
Now, I know what you're thinking: What's the big deal about Ineeka Tea? Why not just go down to the dime store and buy a bag of Lipton Classic? For a dime? A fair question indeed, so behold the following explanation.
First of all, Ineeka tea grows in the Himalayas. With all those condors & eagles flying around the tea plants, you know it's gotta be fresh.
Moving on to more substantial quality indicators, Ineeka only uses the nutrient rich parts of the tea plant: the tender two leaves and the young bud. Unlike those other tea companies who use the broken isolated crushed plant parts (actually true), and who add other nutrient-void ingredients, like the center of a Twinkie (also true), the center of a Peppermint Pattie (speculated but not confirmed), and the center of a Gusher (possibly not true).
And whereas many other tea companies grow genetically modified mutant tea plants in fields of chemical pesticides and then cut their tea with anti-freeze to reduce costs and add MSG to get you addicted and wanting more more more, Ineeka Tea is completely organic and has no added flavors or oils. The choice is as crystal clear as a Himalayan mountain stream.
Ineeka is a step above organic. If you think you're doing your job buying merely organic tea, you're not. What you really need is tea grown with Ineeka's biodynamic agricultural practices, which align farming with the rhythms of nature. Basically as the earth inhales, Ineeka teas inhale, resulting in perpetual and harmonious circular breathing. It is a common misconception that circular breathing was invented by Kenny G. In fact, it was invented a long long time ago by didgeridoo players in the Himalayas, who needed a way to simultaneously play the didgeridoo while drinking Ineeka Tea. Through this practice, biodynamic agriculture was born in the Himalayas. And now, Ineeka Tea let's you experience the world's most sustainable farming practice, shipped across the world to your doorstep. At an amazing discount price.
But Ineeka isn't merely environmentally sustainable - their dedication to respecting labor rights is exemplary. Ineeka employs 25,000 people & pays above industry wages & bonuses, and offers extensive benefits, like free schooling & housing & specialized medical facilities. I know - like, see you in the Himalayas, am I right?
In conclusion, this is some seriously sustainably-produced tea. They're certified organic, certified fair trade, and apparently there is a certification process for biodynamically-grown products because they've got that certificate too. So get your Fair-Trade-on, your Organic-on, and your Groupon.
