We are so thrilled to have your beautiful tea as part of our newly launched Sleep Edit. In a few words, can you share your thoughts on what it is about Storm + India tea that differentiates it from the rest.

We're so excited for the Storm and India range to be available in Papinelle stores! Our family has always believed in organic farming practices, which is not only at the core of how we live, but also how we operate our business. Storm and India teas are certified organic, meaning you can guarantee there will be no nasty surprises in your daily brew. This is important to us because we believe wellness begins from within. 

What are your thoughts on the importance of sustainable design and business practice.

Sustainability is at the core of our business, which is why it was such an easy decision to stock with Papinelle! Just like we only have one body to live in, we only have one planet to live on. It is more important now than ever to take care of our planet by making responsible, everyday choices. We are firm believers of quality over quantity and it is so reassuring to see more conscious consumer choices in the present day.

Can you give us a little known fact or back-story about your Zen Matcha?

Matcha has become quite popular in the Western World these past few years, but many people don't know just how powerful its health benefits are. We source our matcha from organic farms near Kyoto, Japan, and I'm still amazed at how much better I feel incorporating matcha into my daily nutrition. When you drink matcha, you get 100% of the nutrients. This includes vitamins, fiber and 137 times the antioxidants of a cup of regularly brewed green tea. 

We’d love to know your downtime rituals or your top tips for the best night’s sleep of your life.

I'm really strict on myself to not use screens 30 minutes before sleeping. Not only is it bad for your eyes in the darkness, but I also find it creates too much mental stimulation before that one chance a day we all get to rest without justifying it to ourselves. I also take a warm shower in the evenings, complete my skincare routine, and have recently incorporated essential oils into my routine. And of course, I never go to bed without a detox evening tea which is great for digestion and lowers cortisol. Taking the time to make a cup of tea before getting into bed is my calming ritual. It is kind of like my final step in signalling to my body it has earned its rest for the day.
