How does Kickstarter work?
Support us by clicking the "Back This Project" button. Enter your generous donation and select the appropriate reward. Kickstarter accepts Amazon payments. We have 30 days to reach our goal. If within this time we get 1K, then your card gets charged with the amount you selected and we ship the rewards you picked. If by January 9th we collect less than 1K, then nobody gets charged and we cry in our pillows.
Why do we need the money?
New packaging only comes in cases of 1000 pouches. Go big or go home.

The LLDPE & AL provide the ultimate barrier protection against UV lighting, moisture, and oxygen. The addition of natural kraft paper to the laminate gives these stand up pouches a unique texture and appearance. Zip closures and tear notches are available on each of these stand up pouches giving them a resealable feature. Best of all this is made in the USA.
All the pouches will be sealed with the Hand Held Heat Sealer. Already know we that which we need.

Assam tea is a superior kind of tea grown in the Eastern Himalayas, where the Indian mountains meet China and Myanmar. Black tea antioxidants, like polyphenols, scavenge your body for free radicals to neutralize them and may even repair their damage.
Cinnamon is a small tree that grows in India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, and Egypt. Cinnamon improves circulation and energy flow, it circulates energy to the rest of the body and is thought to have a warming effect. Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, reduce cholesterol, cure common cold, boost memory and cognitive function and cure headaches and migraines.
Ginger root is effective in reducing nausea and also may be useful in reducing the pain, stiffness, and immobility of arthritis. Ginger may even improve some cases of constant severe dizziness and vertigo. It also helps relieve migraine headaches.
Cloves are the dried flower buds of the clove tree, an evergreen tree that grows in tropical climates. They are stimulating and have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antiseptic properties. They are also a natural anesthetic (due to the eugenol oil) which is why they were often used for dental procedures in centuries past and are still used in some cultures to remedy toothache. Cloves are a great spice to heal ailments of the digestive system.
Elletaria cardamomum from the Zingiberaceae(ginger) family hails from India. Ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Arab cultures were equally fond of the spice. Cardamom helps in cleansing the body as it has detoxifying properties. It improves blood circulation to the lungs and is beneficial for those suffering from various kinds of respiratory allergies.
In tea they are known to uplift the nervous systems, relieve insomnia, depression, and fatigue as well as a treatment for other stress related conditions. In addition they help the circulation of blood, keeping your heart in healthy condition.

The powerful antioxidants in green tea have been shown in recent studies to fight viruses, slow aging, and have a beneficial effect on health. An antioxidant found in green tea is at least 100 times more effective than vitamin C and 25 times more effective than vitamin E at protecting cells and DNA from damage. A few benefits of green tea include reducing high blood pressure, lowering blood sugar, and lowering cholesterol.
Chamomile is an herb that comes from a flowering plant of the daisy family. It is a wonderful remedy for insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, and migraines. The most well-known benefit of chamomile is as sleep aid. It is known for its relaxing and soothing properties and is often taken before bed to promote restful sleep. Chamomile also has immune boosting properties and helps in the fight against colds.
Spearmint takes its name from its crinkled leaves, which resemble the shape of the blade of a spear. Spearmint cures headaches, provides relief to people suffering from sore throat, and heartburn.
Lavender flowers are added to tea formulas for a pleasing, soothing aroma; the tea is sipped throughout the day to ease nervous tension. Lavender has a mildly sedating action and is a weak antispasmodic for muscular tension, specifically relaxing the large muscles in the back. Lavender is also used in herbal remedies for respiratory issues.
Rhodiola is proven to maximize energy, fight the effects of stress and aging, sharpen memory and concentration, ease anxiety and depression.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is our commitment to quality. All of our tea bags are made by hand. That includes measuring tea, spices and flowers individually into each tea bag. Then hand sealing the tea bag. In the future we plan to streamline this process, but for this Kickstarter we are sticking to the classic way of making the best bag of tea. You simply can't find this level of quality anywhere.
Gaia Tea is a small team of dedicated people. But we are no shipping conglomerate. To handle a large amount of Rewards we are using Cafe Press to take care of shipping. Cafe Press is the best service out there for custom T-shirts and Cups. The tea pouches will be shipped using Priority Mail from USPS, we want you to get your awesome rewards the fastest way possible.
