- Wild Madrona Bark
Japan’s preventative healthcare practice of Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) involves sitting among forest trees for hours. The ritual can also involve drinking the country’s favorite tea…Sencha with its fresh, bright, bittersweet and clean ocean-breeze finish.
Sencha is a stellar green tea on its own but we have expanded it even further with subtle and supporting forest notes of San Juan Island Madrona Bark. It's as if the two were always destined to come together for an extremely satisfying cup of tea!

Sencha Green Tea - Sencha has a wide array of physical health benefits as well as mood-boosting effects. Sencha tea is rich in antioxidants, which can help protect you from free radicals. The tea can also help reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and lower cholesterol. Like other green teas, Sencha is a great source of caffeine, giving you an energy kick and improving your mood. Green teas are also full of theanine, an amino acid that induces relaxation and lowers anxiety.
Madrona Bark - The beautiful papery red bark of this iconic Northwestern tree was an important medicine for many Native peoples in the Northwest. It peels off the tree in gorgeous cinnamon-like curls making it easy and sustainable to harvest. It is often used to assist in treating colds as well as sore throats and to alleviate stomach aches and pain due to cramps.
