John Boyd, creator of Buddha Teas, was raised in the U.K. amongst a significant tea culture. Boyd moved to the United States in 2006, where he noticed a lack of tea options in comparison to his home country. Boyd was inspired to create a line of teas that catered to those who sought simple, pure tea. He brought this idea of establishing a healthy tea brand in America to his business partner, Nicholas Marier, and they established the Buddha Teas brand together.
Buddha Teas is founded upon transparency in the formulation of each bag of tea. All teas are without artificial flavorings, additives, and even natural added flavors. Boyd realized that natural added flavors are a misnomer for “lab-adjusted natural flavors,” so did away with extra flavorings altogether. This transparency is reflected in the company’s name, which Boyd conceptualized in 2008. It is meant to represent the honor and respect that his tea brand pays to the earth in its simplicity and sustainability.
Buddha Teas now offers a range of tea options that cater to different aspects of health, some formulations borrowing from traditional tea preparation. This is evident in their Golden Milk, which the company adapted from an Ayurvedic recipe. Recently, Buddha Teas has delved into the world of CBD-infused tea. Buddha teas uses water-soluble CBD-based teas, which makes its absorption into the body much more effective than other brands that utilize oil-based CBD. Moreover, Buddha Teas contain 0% THC in their products. Buddha Teas currently offers the following CBD-infused teas:
- Matcha green tea
- Turmeric and ginger
Buddha Teas is revolutionizing the American tea scene through their pure, honest tea leaves and innovative tea combinations.
