Organic Herbal Tea with Rhoeco: "We promote well-being while preserving the Earth."
We asked the founders of Rhoeco - our chosen tea brand - to tells us their story…
It all started when three friends Katerina, Vaya and Harry found each other while studying agriculture in Greece. Passionate about nature, they wanted to raise awareness about the environment and play their part in environmental protection by suggesting eco-friendly daily habits like preparing and enjoying a cup of tea.
Inspired by the complexity of our ecosystem, the friends created two product ranges of exquisite herbal tea locally sourced in Greece. Both consisting of whole loose, certified organic herbal leaves, flowers and fruits, 100% natural with zero additives & naturally caffeine-free, all hand-processed and packaged ecologically in small batches.
The first range is the 'Drink it, plant it' concept, where the brand encourages people to reuse the biodegradable containers by growing inside their own herbs. To do so, in each package, they provide a seed stick containing a mix of organic herb seeds ready to be planted inside the container. On the other hand, the 'Monovarietals', are packaged in Biotrē ® bags made from renewable plant-based resources.
"We rely on natural cycles and we imitate them at all stages of production. Choosing organic, we choose a much less polluting agricultural system with a very low environmental cost. The package reuse, a concept inspired by the recycle of matter in its natural environment, the decomposing of both packages and finally the incorporation into the soil result in no waste."
The name Rhoeco came up when playing with the words rhoē (meaning flow in Greek), eco (for ecology) and co (for cooperation). Rhoeco is the result of their aspiration to create a product for the present while respecting the past and thinking about the future.
