About This Blend

Working closely with the 27 women of Samagaun & Tergar Charity Nepal, we created the Organic Wild Himalayan Goji blend to benefit the women and the biodiversity that surrounds them. In Autumn, the women harvest wild grown, organic, goji berries (gob-chis in Tibetan). Himalayan goji berries are of the highest quality, maintaining their complex flavors and nutritious benefits, and are high in antioxidants. Hand-picked by the women, each goji berry comes from wild bushes growing at 3,550m altitude. They are cleaned by hand and dried in specifically designed solar dyers.

Ingredients

Organic Wild Himalayan Goji Berries, organic rose petals, cornflower petals, elderberry, hibiscus, currant, Saskatoon berry, and natural flavors

The unique location of the Samagaun village creates the perfect conditions for wild goji berries. The land on which these berries grow is diverse in flora and wildlife, and remains untouched by pollution due to its extremely high altitude and remoteness.

The women carefully hand-pick each goji berry, from wild bushes growing at 3,550m altitude. They are then cleaned by hand and dried in specifically designed solar dyers. Nepalese goji berries are of the highest quality, maintaining their complex flavors and nutritious benefits, and are high in antioxidants.

Support the
Women

Working closely with the 27 women of Samagaun & Tergar Charity Nepal, we created the Wild Himalayan Goji Tea to benefit the women and the biodiversity that surrounds them.

We continue our work with the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity as we aim to provide these women the means to support their community sustainably, for decades to come.

INTEGRAL TO THEIR COMMUNITY
Nestled at the base of Mount Manaslu deep in the Himalayan Mountains is the remote village of Samagaun. The women of Samagaun are a resilient group of women. Their strength is shown every day as they maintain and grow harvests year round in difficult mountain conditions.

Beyond the Blend

Beyond the Blend

FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
The focus of this social impact TEALEAVES project is to listen, share, and collaborate with the women to assist them in the creation of a sustainable brand, and international reputation for their goji berries by 2026.
100% of the proceeds from the tea will be donated to the women of Samagaun.
Every purchase will help the women gain empowerment within their community as they grow their infrastructure and cultivate their land to increase their harvest in a biodiverse manner, so that it can prosper for decades to come.
PGS Certified and Mountain Partnership Supported
"Around the world, important agrobiodiversity and traditional knowledge are disappearing as farmers switch to growing commercial crop varieties that are more profitable in the short term. Long term, however, these crops – which are not adapted to the local ecosystems – can cause environmental degradation and inhibit climate adaptation. One way to promote smallholders’ products is through the development of participatory guarantee systems (PGS). PGS are quality assurance schemes for agricultural products, internationally recognized as low-cost certification suitable for smallholder farmers and local/national markets."
