How We Think
Making use of the gifts of God:
We at Trees and Leaves believe that mankind is blessed with the gift of nature as the first
line of defense for healing and long-term health. We are concerned that much of the
growth in diseases and illnesses are essentially due to the lack of appreciation towards
nature. In order to reconnect people with the blessing of nature, we search the globe over to source our product range from the best of the best suppliers of natural foods.
However, nothing is added to our range of products until we test it for its health qualities, ethical and environment-friendly production and its organic certifications.
To connect our customers to the best that nature has to offer.
Utilize our strength in health and research in order to identify and source the best of products from around the world that are geared towards meeting the needs of our wide range of customers.
OUR STORY- RESEARCH DRIVEN
With our parent company having decades of experience monitoring the global tea market, we at Trees and Leaves were able to recognize the fluctuating tea market in the UK. Desiring to respond to the change in the market we conducted a market research study throughout London, Hertfordshire and the South East of England to look at consumption trends towards non-traditional teas to healthy teas and noted that people were increasingly becoming aware of the preventative and curative foods that are available.
We conducted a series of product testing initiates with consumers at high footfall locations such as the St. Albans market. A demand for flavored tea, green tea and traditional black tea was found evident. We also noted that the community was interested in trying out blended teas like cinnamon tea, murunga tea, chamomile tea and several other organic / natural products that are known for their health benefits.
Tea originated in Sri Lanka is preferred by Brits due to its ethical production, quality and unique taste that it’s known best for.
This was fortunate for us given our close ties with Sri Lanka, the land of Ceylon tea. So we journeyed deep into the plantations, looking closely at the cultivation of healthy tea, how it is dried and processed, the distinctions among different grades and ways of recognising the best products. We were pleased to also note the potential of being able to give back to the low-income communities who worked on the plantations.
Successfully launching our first retail outlet in 2018 along with our online commerce site – treesandleaves.co.uk. – we are now totally committed to this exciting journey into the world of healthy, organic and ethically sourced teas and other produce.
The latest scientific studies show that just three cups of tea a day, could cut the risk of bone fractures in the elderly by almost a third.
It suggests that tea could become a powerful weapon against osteoporosis, the bone-weakening condition that already affects around three million people in Britain.
Recent international research has suggested that regular tea drinking can slow down certain cancers and reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease. Most reports showing a positive link with cancer prevention, appear from studies using green tea compared with black tea.
