The idea of Katula Tea came into being at the prompting of family and friends who have shared our herbal teas. These tea blends were gathered from plants fresh from the garden or dried and blended for the leaner times of year. For the product line, we have sought out only organically grown herbs from reputable sources. The herbs are then hand blended by the family in a local commercial kitchen. Not only are the blends tasty, they are also healthy! A percentage of all tea sales will go towards supporting the African Wildlife Foundation.
Why use a leopard for our tea logo? “Katula” actually means leopard in the Bemba language of northern Zambia. That is where Kate met her husband, Rafe, who was living on a farm called Katula. They brought the name with them to a farm in Maine in the early ‘70s, and now it has a new incarnation.
Tulsi Fusion is a great way to start the day with its energizing, yet soothing blend of herbs. Tulsi has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It contains many phytochemicals that support the immune system and aids stress.
Balm for the Blues is a refreshing pick-me-up at any time. Rosemary lifts the spirits and enhances mental clarity, lemon balm calms nerves and spasms, and lavender relaxes.
Full Belly Brew is the perfect complement to savor after a good meal, as rosemary, peppermint, sage and caraway are all helpful digestive herbs, whilst hibiscus flavors and cleanses the palate.
Herbal Nightcap speaks for itself with its selection of soothing, relaxing herbs to prepare you for a good night’s sleep. Note: catnip has the opposite effect on humans than it does on cats!
Winter Comfort contains herbs that have a high Vitamin C and antioxidant content—just what is needed at this time of year! The spices are equally important in this regard, as well as providing a nostalgic seasonal taste.
All blends of Katula Tea are caffeine free. The teas are not intended to treat, cure, prevent or diagnose any disease. Information is for educational purposes only.
