Vendor Q&A: Get to Know Good Karma Tea Co.

Consider the practice of mindful shopping.

Instead of making purchases that follow the latest trend or indulgence, truly "treat yo self" by investing in your own wellbeing.

This is a big part of the intention behind what we provide to anyone who walks through the doors of Health Nut Nutrition. As such, we are elated to carry tea from the wonderful women at Good Karma Tea Co.

 We hope to offer an alternative to Western medicine by offering tea and tisanes that help with body pain, insomnia, allergies, and much more. We not only blend for health, but taste.

Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A:
We are so happy to have had such a great response in our first couple of years running our company, both from customers and businesses who sell and serve our product. With coffee shops a plenty, tea can sometimes be a difficult venture. However, people are starting to catch on to the wonderfulness of tea. We know there is a real want and need for healthier lifestyle choices and we are glad to offer those services to this community.
