About Waterwheel Tea
Waterwheel Tea is a new company...established in 2014!
If I am not growing it myself, I gather certified organic, organically grown and/or wild-crafted herbs from local farmers & growers within a 50 mile radius of Dillsburg, PA, then process & package them in a licensed food establishment. Just as there is a movement to eat locally, I think it is important to encourage the community to drink locally too including my herbal tea that is local, whole leaf, clean, organic and seasonal. As a result, when the farmers run out of an herb and I exhaust my supply, that particular tea is “out of season” until the farmer has more to harvest. I work hard to create different blends so that there are different teas for each season.
Each herbal tea is given a fun name to show that there's a lighter side to tea drinking. Although I try to make it fun, there's a serious yet helpful side of tea drinking. As a result, I encourage you to consult your chosen health authority (prior to consuming) to be sure the ingredients complement your body and health.
Finally….I am old fashioned yet forward thinking....my goal is to move onto farm land in the Franklin Township area of Dillsburg with my kids, organically grow more herbs and have a waterwheel on the property to help with irrigation. Thus the name keeps my focus and vision alive.
