Souvia's Angel's Kiss tea in PHoenix Home and GardenFor those of you Angel’s Kiss fans, the tea had a nice mention (along with Souvia) in the Agust issue of Phoenix Home and Garden magazine? “Market Basket” Section.? We were listed along with the usual corporate suspects China Misty, Tazo and Republic of Tea.

An excerpt “Souvia, a tea shop in Scottsdale, has an array of loose teas from which to choose. Its Angel’s Kiss (above right) is a green tea with the sweet tastes of papaya, pineapple, rose petals and strawberries.”

Bottled Water

Filed under: Newsletter,Phoenix,Tea in Arizona — Administrator @ 1:00 pm

An astonishing story on the impact of bottled water on the environment was on NPR late last month.? It covered everything from distribution, to contents to disposal.

Bottled Water: A Symbol of U.S. Commerce, Culture

The NPR piece is based on a longer article in Fast Company Magazine.

? The remarkable parts are what Americans spend ($15 BILLION) and what is thrown away (38 BILLION empty bottles).? ? In a little thought experiment that works out to a pile of bottles covering a football field and extending 5 miles high!

So, do your part use refillable containers when possible.
