Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
The Tea Spot, Inc., Boulder’s philanthropic loose tea company, is pleased to announce its successful Breast Cancer Awareness initiative this month, having sold out of the 'Steep It Pink' tea gifts. The Steep it Pink gift set includes included a large tin of Meditative Mind handcrafted rosebud and jasmine tea blend, and a Limited Edition hot pink Tuffy Tea Steeper.
For each 'Steep it Pink' gift set sold at their online tea store during the month of October, The Tea Spot is donating a loose tea gift set to breast cancer support group participants at Boulder Community Hospital. These care packages will go directly to women who are seeking the support of patient advocates and people who are going through treatment and decisions similar to their own. The Tea Spot is inspired by medical research suggesting the benefits of green and white teas in increasing the body’s immunity against the onset and recurrence of breast cancer. For this reason, the company has chosen the Meditative Mind tea for this gift set.
Meditative Mind is The Tea Spot’s best-selling white tea blend. It is a blend of large leaf white tea, rosebuds and rose petals, and green tea jasmine pearls. Meditative Mind is an exquisite handcrafted white tea, both visually and aromatically.
Tuffy Steeper is a loose leaf tea infuser that allows you to steep tea anywhere at your convenience. It is a durable, expandable, food-grade silicone steeper that’s versatile and easy to clean and pack. The lid doubles as a saucer for the brewing basket when your tea is done steeping. Tuffy Steeper will fit in most cups, mugs and teapots.
“At The Tea Spot, we donate time, services, and ten percent of all our sales in-kind to cancer and community wellness programs. This is our Ten Percent Pledge, and we do this to ensure an ongoing commitment to actively support the causes that fuel our passion. It was exciting to see the response to our ‘Steep It Pink’ tea gift set, where our customers could directly influence the donations we were making to local breast cancer support groups,” said company CEO Maria Uspenski, herself a cancer survivor. “Our partnership with Boulder Community Hospital is especially gratifying to us, as we are supporting mothers and daughters in our local neighborhoods. Cancer support groups are most valuable in so many ways. Meeting and taking tea in a community setting can help ease the feelings of loneliness and isolation that many of us experience when dealing with cancer.”
