Anthea Organics is delighted to announce that our Organic Energy Blend, which participated in the category of ‘’Innovative Product’’, won the Bronze award at Gourmet Exhibition’s Specialist Awards.
Organic Energy Blend is a herbal blend that combines harmoniously Greek mountain tea, sage, mint, rosemary and rose petals. This original blend boosts the energy levels and revitalize the body and mind in the most natural way. Organic Energy Blend stands out, not only for its aromatic yet refined taste, but also for its innovative packaging.
The Organic Energy Blend packaging is zero waste and plastic free, like all the Anthea Organics packaging. The tea bags are made of polylactic acid (also known as PLA), a bioplastic which is produced by plant-based sources, like corn starch. They are biodegradable and compostable. Inside the paper box, the tea bags are placed in a special sachet made of cellulose, a substance which derives from wood-pulp (Nature-Flex) and is fully biodegradable and compostable.
