Tea Industry Trend Watching

As posted in our Tea Industry Career and Trends

Trend sharing from where I sit: Less camellia, more botanicals. More and more genuine care and concern for the story – the traceability, the health of the soil, plants, and people = planet. Will consumers pay the premium for that story? That is where we all need to ban together and educate for the long haul. It is ironic, I know. My company Eco Hub Inc, DBA Build a Blend and Ingredient Hub are on the path of telling that story, growing more domestically, and having that seed to cup process – with regenerative and restorative practices.

Personal brands – business has changed. The major company competition more and more is your local trusted expert – and their personal brand.

However, I also do know that there are some quick (and dirty) huge sales in ingredients and iced teas. Getting cleaner teas and botanicals and iced teas…that is going to be work. I see consumers actually caring about a good tea lately and speaking up! Distributors – you need to jump on that! We need to partner together for that supply chain – back to the farm – support. $$ Let’s invest together for quality and care.

Cheers, Friends!

Petali Teas

Our day begins with a list of teas to compose…a combination of retail and wholesale orders that just came in. We have over 300 recipes that our founder, Joy Wujek, has developed, inspired by desserts, ingredients, tea traditions and customer/staff suggestions.

Petali Teas is handcrafted- no machines are used to produce the tea blends- The style is artisan, using full leaves, fruits, nuts, barks, roots, flower petals, yerba mate, rooibos and a myriad of tea shapes, sizes and varieties. Our flavorings and essences are the best quality available so each cup is a delicious experience.

Joy has been on a lifelong journey learning about plants and tea customs. She loves hiking through forest, fields, deserts and learning about biomes and symbiotic relationships in nature.

Her gardens burst with flowers and herbs and delights in the help that she gets from her chickens who keep weeds and pests under control.


Cannabis cultivation goes back some 12,000 years, making it one of humanity’s oldest crops. It’s believed to have first grown wild in Central Asia, (now Mongolia and Siberia). Humans quickly figured out that drying it, smoking it, wearing it and weaving it was a really good idea, so they began to cultivate crops.
