(Eye-opening)No Marvelous English Black Tea here 24/7
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! Within this blog I will discuss why I don’t source any “English Black Tea.” This is definitely an eye-opener for some. Get yourself a nice cup of tea to sip while I spill the knowledge.
English Black Tea or Not?
Did you know that English Black doesn’t come from England at all? The name English Black Tea was actually coined by an Englishman Richard Davies. He came from Hull, which was 200 miles North of London and migrated to New York. Mr. Davies came to New York and didn’t know anyone or anything. With his entrepreneurial spirit he found a way to import tea on credit. He started up his tea business and named it Canton Tea Company. He wanted to experiment with creating his own blends of tea. Fine tea from china Fujian province congou tea was used as the base. A golden Orange Pekoe and Pouchong which was a form of oolong tea was added to the congou tea. He named this tea English Breakfast and said it was the most popular drink in England to drink. Everyone wanted a taste of English fine tea, but what they didn’t know was it wasn’t English at all. I say Mr. Davies definitely created his own market and a legend that lives on until today.
Why Is Diversity Important?
Diversity is important for so many reasons. I source tea from all over the globe so people can see that there is much more out there than what we may or may not see. From my experience in life the unknown is feared. To create more awareness so you wont be afraid of trying something new I have unique teas in one spot for anyone to try. I talk to many people who didn’t even know about Purple tea from kenya and maybe would have never tried it if I didn’t educate them on this tea. Not only are you trying something new from small tea farmers in developing countries, but you are opening your mind which is a great start. English Black tea is available almost anywhere but citrus globe puerh isn’t, Chocolate Besos isn’t or Best Of Both worlds .
Why Is Inclusivity Important ?
What is inclusivity? According to Oxford “The practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those having physical or mental disabilities or belonging to other minority groups.” Most farmers in developing countries don’t have the same privilage or opportunities like other farmers. They have many disadvantages against them like lack of resources to export, language barriors, scarce food conditions, lack of knowledge to operate a business and lack of funding. I wanted to support these farmers and provide inclusivity and awareness on this topic. I truly believe that we are all intertwined and connected. I also believe that it’s a part of my purpose and everyone elses’ purpose to help each other and lift one another up. Otherwise with an individualistic mindset we can not face problems like world hunger, climate change, human trafficking and poverty. I strongly believe if we support one another and actaully care to understand each other from an open perspective we can achieve anything. Without diversity and inclusivity we are missing major pieces to the puzzle.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. I hope your learned something new. With diversity becoming more understood don’t ever be afriad to tell your truth. Always keep in mind we are all human and all humans deserve a chance to be seen and heard. Please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts on diversity and inclusion. Stay strong, stay healthy and stay #outwoken!
