New Tea Company Promotes Nutritious Blends
Locally based startup Urbal Tea formulates and blends loose-leaf, dried herbs into healthy tisanes and tea, packed with antioxidants, trace minerals and vitamins. The teas are available online and are now being carried by local retailers Beans & Barley and The Natural Food Shop. This summer, the products will also be available at area farmers’ markets, such as Cedarburg, East Side Green, Waukesha, Brookfield and Monona.
“As an herbalist, I believe people are looking for safe and healthy ways to heal and nourish their bodies. Drinking tea daily is one way to stay healthy, and I am happy to provide it,” comments Urbal Tea founder Nick Nowaczyk, a long-time nature enthusiast who studied herbalism in Madison. “Herbs have been used for centuries as medicine. Many prescription drugs derive from herbs. I believe our world continues to evolve and become more interested in alternative health remedies.”
