Hornby Island Tea : Desiree Lyver
After completing a Diploma in Environmental science, which was equally disturbing as inspiring, my outlook completely changed the way I view products throughout our grocery stores.
This is what planted the seed and moved me to get involved with supporting; sustainable family farms, both locally and globally.
Hornby Island Tea is all about creating a product that is equally as good for our health as it is for the environments. That allows the hard working farmers, local businesses and economics to thrive.
The exceptional quality, taste, aromas, health benefits and experience are what stand out from basing our business on these principles.
Hornby Island Tea blends island grown lavender, calendula, and mints with green and black teas from The Small Tea CO-OP family farms in Assam, India. Wildly harvested nettles with rich iron-red rooibos, from the mountains of Cedarburg, South Africa.
