Qi Ingredients and Why We Use them in our Blends.
We use a large variety of ingredients and natural essential oils and essences in our blends of organic and natural teas - this isn’t an accident.
Qi teas are inspired by the ancient teachings of the Chinese, who have for centuries used natural plants and herbs for healthy living and longevity.
They taught that Qi is the life-force - The natural energy of life.
Qi energy drives all aspects of our lives- the environment and community we live in, the food we eat, and the exercise we take.
In order to achieve wonderful Qi Energy, we must be mindful of what we put into our bodies and what better way to start than with the tea we drink. Tea is after all a way of life and not just a beverage.
Qi energy is strong when all the aspects of our lives are well balanced and in harmony with each other across mind, body and soul – This is the inspiration for our teas.
With this being said the ingredients we use are selected especially to aid with balancing our bodies and many are selected because of the properties they are said to have in helping our bodies with all manor of imbalances or issues.
