Saturday Market Vendor Feature: Darsana Tea
This week, we will be featuring Darsana Tea, which is a one-person business started by Renée Fulsom right here in Vancouver just a year ago specializing in 7 different Chakra blends of tea that you can get in your favourite tea base!
What is included in your Chakra blends?
7 ingredients of fruits, roots, flowers, leaves, plus a base of dark, white, green or nettle tea cupped together. All together, we have 28 different types of teas for you to pick from!
What are the 7 chakras?
The first is wisdom (crown chakra), which is how you perceive the world. Vision (3rd eye chakra)- the lens which you view the world. Voice (throat chakra)- power of how you create your world. Love (heart chakra)- connection with universal consciousness (solar plexus chakra). Service- generosity, harmony, and balance. Freedom (seal of soul chakra)-forgiveness of self and others. Ascension (root chakra)- grounded, and being as one.
What’s different about Darsana Tea that you won’t find in other tea companies?
We source our teas from organic suppliers and packaging that is environmentally friendly, compostable/reusable/recyclable, ethically sourced, and with a small footprint, which was hard because pretty much everything manufacturing wise has been sent to China.
What’s your favourite of them all?
I can’t pick just one. I created all of them and love all of them. They are all my favourites.
Where can I purchase your teas?
We were at 5 farmers markets in Vancouver this season, including UBC Farm. We still have one more date at Riley Park Saturday Farmers Market on Oct 27th, but after the market season, our website continues to be open year-round for you to purchase our teas!
