Our Story

Hello and welcome! I am Portia Cooper. There was a time when just like many Americans I wasn’t too concerned or aware about all the toxins I was putting into my body. I just trusted the grocery stores, so I purchased and consumed whatever was on the shelves. It wasn’t until my husband, our two boys and I watched a documentary that awoken me to the foods I was allowing in my home and feeding to my family. I must admit, I felt ashamed and embarrassed. But as the saying goes, “you don’t know what you don’t know”.

It was then when I began to do extensive research on the materials that were used. I have always drunk tea and was surprised when I learned that the tea bags on the shelves are treated with bleach to make them white.

I immediately began searching for better options and discovered alkaline based herbs such as chamomile, elderberry, and ginger root. I was impressed to see how these ingredients are so beneficial to our bodies and began making my own blend of these teas at home.

I immediately started feeling less anxious, more relaxed, and a boost in my immune system. I knew I had to spread this to other families, women and communities who care about their health and wellness.

Today I am happy to introduce Nola Botanical tea as a 100% biodegradable brand, with healthy unbleached tea filters filled with antioxidants. These teas will improve your health and wellness. Enjoy!
