The time when you had to choose between indulging your taste buds and being environmentally friendly is over! Løv Organic proposes a range of organic teas that are both delicious and environmentally friendly; a choice of innovative and delicious blends in beautiful eco-friendly packaging.
The Løv Organic products are certified organic by ECOCERT and bear the French label (AB), the European label and the American “USDA organic” label. This guarantees that they are free from GMOs; contain only natural flavourings and at least 95% of organically grown ingredients free from chemical treatments (fertilisers or pesticides). For Løv Organic, all the ingredients (tea, fruit pieces, flowers…) are organic, except the natural flavours that are not available in an organic form.
In Scandinavian countries 'løv' means 'leaf'. Løv Organic was inspired by this part of the world where a modern lifestyle goes hand-in-hand with respecting the environment. Løv Organic has also taken on a minimalist design, heavily inspired by Scandinavian culture. Bright colours are used alongside a styled bird-symbolizing nature and the need to protect it.
All the Løv Organic products are eco-friendly: packaging is reduced and cardboard is preferred. When using plastic is absolutely necessary, PET, less harmful for the environment than PVC, is chosen.
The metal tins are recyclable because they are made from steel and without plastic. As they are re-usable and because they can be refilled in stores offering Løv Organic loose tea, they encourage the customer to adopt an environmentally friendly attitude.
The tea bags are unbleached and free of staples or glue and made of organic fibers of corn. They allow the tea leaves to unfurl and release all of their aromas. All of our cardboard packing have the FSC label (Forest Stewardship Council) meaning that the cardboard originates from responsibly managed forests.
The benefits of tea
The medical benefits of tea have always been well-known.
The Emperor Shen Nong, the father of Chinese agricultureand medicine once remarked: "Tea relieves tiredness and strengthens the will, warms the soul and revives eyesight." Conventional medicine then discovered the reasons behind the magical properties of tea.
All teas contain caffeine (or theine). However, the caffeine present in tea is different from that found in coffee. It stimulates the nervous system in a slow and progressive way. It helps you to feel awake and concentrated in a sustainable way.
Tea contains tannins and polyphenols, these are rich in antioxidants. The polyphenols present in green tea are excellent for combating high cholesterol and for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Tea is also rich in vitamins, notably vitamin P (to help strengthen hair) and vitamin B (especially vitamin B9) which helps to maintain general wellbeing. Tea also contains fluoride, which is good for maintaining teeth enamel.
Rooibos, a caffeine free drink, is also rich in polyphenols which have antioxidant and relaxing qualities.
It is therefore best drunk in the late afternoon and evening.
