His new teas, named Ritual: Up and Ritual: Down are intended to support new holistic habits and healthful rituals, while replacing artificial energy enhancers and relaxers with something natural, organic, fairly-traded, and effective. While sipping tea in itself can be an activity steeped in mindfulness, these functional teas are handcrafted from quality herbs and superfoods from around the world to support the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
The quality of the tea is as important as its function. Newton has collaborated with Lemon Lily to bring the teas to market. Also based in Toronto, Lemon Lily is an all-Canadian tea company revered for handcrafted natural and certified organic loose leaf teas. All ingredients are sourced from top tea estates and organic farms (direct trade) from around the world.
Ritual: UP will stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, offering an even and healthy energy boost. Its ingredients are certified by Ecocert Canada, and include organic green tea, organic elderberries, organic cherries, organic golden berries, and organic chaga.
Ritual: DOWN will stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, offering healthy clearing and calm. Its ingredients are certified by Ecocert Canada, and include organic lemongrass, organic chamomile, organic peppermint, organic nettle, organic dandelion leaf, and organic butterfly pea flower. This tea steeps a blue color.
