Have you tried our favorite teas and cocoas from Flying Bird Botanicals? We can't seem to keep them on the shelves. So delicious, from soothing herbal blends to decadent chocolate. And the packaging is just beautiful ... these tins of goodness make a perfect little pick-me-up gift. We asked founder Scout Urling to tell us more about her inspirational company.
How did Flying Bird Botanicals come to be?
Flying bird started with a love of plants, planet and people. Studying natural medicine and healing in college, mixing teas was always a hobby of mine and before I knew it, it had become a business I could hardly keep up with. Luckily for me I found a crew of amazing woman to keep it alive and growing.
What inspires you?
The outdoors, my family and of course beautiful herbs grown by beautiful people.
What is your favorite product in your line?
I could never choose a favorite but I can say, I love closing my day with a cup of Peace Of Mind tea. Hawthorn flowers are so wonderful for strengthening the heart and turning stress into joy… magic, right :)?
What do you see in the future for your company, more specifically regarding the growing Fair Trade and organic movements?
Organic and Fair Trade are at the very core of what we do. It is a philosophy and a life style for us as people and for our company. We do and will continue to only purchase herbs and teas that are ethically grown and sourced for people and planet as a whole. As Nelson Mandela put it, "To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
