St. Patrick’s Day Celebration tip: Purple is the New Green

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal here in Chicago. We even dye our river green for the occasion!

On March 17th, those who are Irish, or just “Irish for the day” we be decked out in all shades of green and drinking their favorite green beverages.

There will be lots of beer and cocktails, but did you know that according to a post in the Irish Times dated 6/26/2012,

“The Irish now drink more tea per capita than any other nation in the world – between six and seven cups a day.” ?

Keeping that in mind, this St. Patrick’s Day, consider celebrating the Irish with a different green drink….green tea!

One of our favorite green tea flavors, Field of Purple Flowers is now available in our tea sachets.  Field of Purple Flowers is an organic green tea with organic cornflower, and organic flavorings.

And remember, our tea is also great for recovering the day after a rousing St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
