NOLA Botanical Tea

Introducing Portia Cooper, owner of Nola Botanical Tea and one of our newest additions to the Thursday Mid-City Market! Portia started the company out of her own personal testimonials. After struggling with bloating and lack of energy, Portia researched the benefits of tea and discovered that ginger root tea is known to help aid bloating and increase energy. However, the way that it’s sold in stores affects its medical properties. It was out of this very research that Nola Botanical Tea was created. Nola Botanical Tea offers quali-tea loose/bottled teas as well as unbleached tea filters and wooden spoons. Their tea blends include bottled/loose Hibiscus tea in addition to Elderberry, Chamomile, and Ginger Root tea. Each tea serves a unique purpose in helping you with different needs, and their unbleached tea filters/wooden spoons allow you to maintain the medicinal benefits of the tea without the unwanted toxins. If unsweetened tea is not your cup of tea, then NBT also offers organic blue agave sweetener! You can find Nola Botanical Tea weekly at the Thursday Mid-City Market. Be sure to swing by and give Portia a warm welcome!
