“Tea has always played a small but crucial part of my life. The ritual of taking time out for myself, a moment in the day when I’m not on the run, ‘me time’, has become so important. I wanted to be able to share and create something that enabled others to do the same. The Raw Essentials collection offers a luxurious and well-earned moment of harmony, a daily ritual to relish.”
Founder and Certified Tea Master
RAW ESSENTIALS IS INSPIRED BY OUR FOUNDER JANET AND HER LOVE OF TEA, PARTICULARLY THE BENEFITS TEA HAS WHEN USED AS PART OF AN ONGOING DAILY RITUAL.
In addition to Janet’s tea obsession, the real story behind Raw Essentials (and behind our passion to produce life-changing products) began with Janet’s son Jake.
In April 2011 Jake was severely burnt in a fire. He had burns to 69% of his body and a 35% chance of survival. The next two years following the accident were spent with endless rounds of treatment and while the results were amazing, they left Jake tired. Eventually, after much persistence, Janet convinced Jake to try the teas she had been blending.
About a week into the course of having the teas daily – every morning and night, Jake started to experience a new found energy, and in turn a far more positive and motivated outlook. Recognising how fortunate he was, Jake was inspired to help other burns patient’s access to the same treatment he was receiving, and so the Roach Foundation was established.
Creating Raw Essentials seemed like the natural next step, combining Janet’s passion for tea with Jake’s passion for The Roach Foundation.
The last 12 months has seen 18 blended variations of the Raw Essentials tea collection, to ensure that each tea, blended masterfully with unique properties and natural ingredients is the perfect balanced combination.
Raw Essentials collection currently has 12 essential blends, made with love and the finest natural quality ingredients, but there are still many more to come. Tea is our passion; we hope that you enjoy our blends as much as we do.
