Van Van Loose Leaf Tea

A special and potent blend of herbs that helps clear energy and protect the spirit. The tea's name and formulation comes from the traditional, Van Van Oil, an old Hoodoo essential oil blend that originated in the Algiers district of New Orleans. Prepared from aromatic Oriental grasses, Van Van was used to provide magical defense, change bad luck to good, and strengthen amulets and charms. The signature ingredient in the formulation is Lemongrass, a plant with a powerful ability to facilitate the purification process. This tea is as delicious as it is potent, with a clean lemony flavor and gentle warming quality.

Leaves and Flowers is a California based tea company offering a unique selection of handcrafted botanical infusions and premium small batch teas.

The company was founded in 2014 by Anna Morton and Emily Erb. 

Anna and Emily utilize locally grown botanicals to create their infusions, in hopes of offering a botanical experience that honors the beauty and lore of the plants. Inspiration comes from the plants themselves – the mythology of their medicine, their potent leaves, delicate flowers, and the intoxicating aroma and flavor they release when infused. Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions are produced by hand in small batches in their California workshop. Herbs are freshly procured from local farms, then sorted, dried and blended by hand. The climate controlled drying room is designed to preserve the plants at the peak of their vitality. Once the herbs have been dried, they are stripped from the stem and stored away from light and air to maintain their impeccable vibrancy. When blending, herbal ingredients are kept as whole and intact as possible.

Leaves and Flowers Camellia sinensis teas are sourced from around the world and chosen for their impeccable quality and flavor. Like the herbal drying and blending methods, much of Camellia sinensis harvesting and processing is carried out by hand. Buds and leaves are hand-picked, then skillfully oxidized, pan­‐fired, rolled or fermented to achieve the desired result. All of Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions and teas are loose leaf, and sustainably grown and harvested.
