Our last blog for 2014 but it is our new beginning into a new journey. Over the year, we usually don't talk about our decision on creating Great Tea Road. From the concept, the name of the company, the slogan, its packaging design ... and everything else has been evolving from day the first day to today. We want to say "Thank you" to all our supporters and customers who give us today. Thank you!
When we looked back at Great Tea Road (GTR) mission statement, we have always wanted our customers to have a trust in the company's products. As mentioned in "Who are we?" page, GTR's mission statement is based around Chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony); purity is a big part of the ceremony. Many times, as a practitioner, we symbolize it by cleaning our utensils (several times during a procedure). Tea Ceremony is also based on Zen. Purity, to us, means more than just cleaning utensils. It also means cleaning our hearts, bodies, and souls. It is an intention - a good intention.
Today, we are proud to say that GTR is now offering USDA Certified Organic in several products. We finally fulfilled one of our dreams. It is to have a good intention by ensuring our customers with our high quality teas and directly from tea farms for its freshness.
Again, thank you so much for being here with us.
