Growing up, I found joy in simple things nature offered. The rolling hills, nature’s fresh produce, tall bamboo trees, clear skies and playing tirelessly under the sun. Anything seemed possible then.
However, I travelled distances, all for a promising future. The journey was undoubtedly enriching yet, there was a part of me that yearned to return. And so, armed with savings and joy, I left my job and I found my way back home.
I delved into my own product development, and started crafting infusions based on indigenous plants and refreshing flavours that million others and I grew up with. To serve you the best of nature and improve livelihoods.
The benefits, flavour, aroma and colour of the infusions, I believed, should come from the real ingredients and nothing else.
When I was a little girl, I would put tiny Sumac Berries in my hand and lick it with joy. I remember that one Roselle plant in the backyard. Since many years, I had not seen the vibrant red colour of blooming Roselle. While Hei-mang and Roselle Olive are citrusy, uplifting and digestive, my Grandma would boil the leaves of Nong-mang-kha to help with cold and cough. It’s a traditional herbal medicine, known for antiviral and antibacterial properties.
