Back to the Brew-ginning
Let’s take it back to 2015 when the idea for Maisha Tea was born. It all began when soon-to-be founder of Maisha Tea, Rachael Otukol, attended the African Innovation Foundation’s conference, Innovation Prize for Africa, in Morocco with her father. Upon leaving the conference, Rachael was inspired by the innovations of entrepreneurs.
“I was jazzed after coming home from the conference. There were so many different kinds of people who were working on social enterprise.” -Rachael Naula
One Ingredient. One Amazing Positive Impact.
What is Moringa and Why is it Good for You?
We will spill the tea and let you in on a little secret… Maisha Tea is made with natural, authentic ingredients! Curious to see the nutritious moringa in action? Check out this video from @samsfoodtravels on Instagram. Warning, this video will make you want to indulge in a cup of herbal tea.
Let the Experiments Begin
“That’s when I realized I had something amazing.”
Cue the Rootree Trifecta
“Packaging can last years and is an integral part in creating your brand.”
“It was even tough choosing from the options I was given because they were honestly all really good.”
“Rootree was able to keep the colour differentiation, but just made it more vibrant. It now pops more… They were able to take that element that was really important to me, and then make it so much better.”
A De-stressor… AKA, Co-Packing
“The co-packing frees up so much time and mental energy for me to spend on higher level things like my marketing, getting my social media together, and then making sure that I streamline my processes from start to finish.”
From Beginning to End with Rootree
“The process has been made so much easier by Rootree doing all three of those things [pouch design, printing, and co-packing] … This was able to make less work for me.”
“Everything Rootree has done is in Burlington and I am in Victoria, B.C.. I have never been to the physical location, ever. And I don’t need to, which I think is really cool.”
