This tea blend was made as a tribute to our friend, and elephant expert, Harry Peachey. Harry joined us for tea at the shop a few weeks ago and we had a delightful afternoon of conversation. We talked about many topics, but most importantly, elephant conservation and the situation of Human Elephant Conflict (known at HEC). Harry worked many years as an elephant handler for the world renowned Columbus Zoo in Columbus, Ohio. To hear his insights on elephant behavior was fascinating and we could see his obvious love and dedication to the iconic animals in every expression that crossed his face during our discussions. I hope to have more opportunities to have tea with Harry and Joy as I sense there are many more endearing stories he could share as well as pertinent information that we all need to learn and act upon.
Harry Peachey tea blend is our very first Elephant Approved™ blend. We have used green tea from a very special tea garden near an elephant corridor in India, north of Assam. We have joined this special green with white tea, Sechung oolong, peach pieces, rare peach blossoms and natural peach flavorings.
All profits from the sales of this blend will be donated to WTI- the Wildlife Trust of India- to assist in the restoration of elephant corridors.
