EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

Mindfuleaves is a service that enable people to celebrate life. Would you really like to touch someone deeply with your words? Feeling like you want to say something important to someone you care about? or you want to simply express your gratitude, or remembering something special with a distant friend? Send them tea with your message. We also have a value proposition for companies and their PR activities: Sending gift cards to employees? greetings messages to partners and customers? Thinking about how to reach your employees and partners with a special message and a mindful experience? We celebrate life every today Doesn’t need to be special, unique, awesome, extreme or expensive. It is all that is in its marvel. “What day is it?”, asked Pooh “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet “My favorite day,” said Pooh” - A.A. Milne We believe tea brings people together. We love tea. We provide tea lovers with fascinating flavours and sensuous moments of pleasure. We work tirelessly to bring a smile to the lips of tea lovers all over the world with our creations. We take the production process into our own hands: we assist and support our producers, we blend our diverse range of teas in small quantities, fresh each day from our tea workshop and we deliver it right at the door of our customers employing local youth at every stage of the chain.

Youth in Kenya in rural and urban areas. Youth in the rural areas will benefit from growing the herbs and cocoa, youth in the urban areas will benefit working in the mixing and packaging plant, chocolate processing, sale and delivery work.
