Kari Dandrea, founder of Pureblend Tea, “is committed to providing healthy, socially responsible blended teas in an effort to raise consciousness for better living through alternative and holistic resources available in natural form.” Dandrea founded Pureblend Tea while experimenting at home with herbs and teas to relieve common ailments without the use of over-the-counter drugs. All teas go through a hand-blended process to better achieve the concept of balance, which plays an integral role at the heart of Pureblend Tea’s mission. The selection of quality teas and matcha are procured with 100% Organic and Fair Trade certified ingredients.
Matcha, a green tea unique to Japan, is rich in many nutrients, antioxidants, fiber, and chlorophyll. Unlike most teas the whole leaf is ingested, not just the brewed water, since matcha comes in powder form. As a nutritional and antioxidant powerhouse one glass of matcha equals multiple glasses of regular green tea. This tea has a complex, rich taste that has an initial bitter taste, followed by a lingering sweetness.
