Our Holistic Team

Woash's Mission

To bridge the gap between traditional herbal medicine and modern wellness by carefully crafting loose-leaf tea blends that utilize the natural healing properties and benefits of each herb to modernize century old methods that nourish, support and enhance overall health the way nature intended us to.

 

Quality Tea Ingredients

Each of our tea blends contain a variety of ingredients that are strategically chosen for their quality, potency, freshness and sustainability. We work closely with each of our designers, suppliers and blenders  to ensure each requirement is met or exceeds our expectations on a regular basis (this means lots of tea tasting!).

 

We only blend with top quality, certified organic, whole-leaf ingredients that are sourced directly from sustainable farms all over the world (we think the middleman causes too many unknowns). Depending on what your favourite blend is, you could be sipping Lemongrass from Sri Lanka, Calendula from Egypt, Green Yerba Mate from Brazil or Passionflower from France! Discover our global tea blends here.

 

We’ve set high standards for our products to ensure each cup is packed with the most nourishment and benefits possible, which led us to a non-negotiable decision to not have any additives in our blends; natural or artificial flavouring or sweeteners or sugars. If this is making you wonder a little about what you’ve been sipping on in the past check out our page comparing the top tea brands on the market and how they (most definitely don’t) measure up to our standards.

Vendor Collaboration and The Process

Tea has been my favourite drink of choice since I was about 10 years old after almost 2 decades of sipping all kinds of tea from your well-known supermarket brands, to an easily identified teal blue tea shop, to sipping the best of the best with tea farmers, makers and masters all over the world, I knew I needed help to bring my vision to life. I’ve worked side-by-side with a variety of industry experts to ensure the same level of quality, care and attention goes into each blend as I have experienced in other cultures. 

 

The level of detail and consideration with each new product we produce results in a lot of time, taste testings, revisions and often many delays (its always worth it, trust us!). When we consider launching a new tea blend it must tick three critical boxes, is the blend: 

  1. Unique
  2. Intentional 
  3. Beneficial

 

We like to do things a little differently around here and blend herbs that some may think would never go together, while intention is our driving force, the root of where this all began - to simplify an overly saturated and industrialized market, therefore you won't find us with a wall of 100+ varieties, and lastly each ingredient must add significant benefit to the overall purpose of each blend, without sacrificing taste.

 

We’ve been so fortunate to have worked with such experienced and talented people, check them out below!
