Why this format?
As Indians, our days are incomplete without tea! It's the second most popular drink in the world, after water. For centuries now, sitting down with a cup of tea and sipping it slowly has been known to clear our minds.
At Ausum, we make functional teas that play a much bigger role in your healthy diet and help you go stress-free. While the format looks like tea because it's already a part of our daily lifestyle, these beverages provide essential plant-based nutrients needed to support your lifestyle. These infusions provide the comfort we seek when we feel stressed after working long hours and feel the urge to sip on a beverage.
Sip on, stress off. It’s that simple.
Teabag with a Tale
Two of the most popular materials used to create tea bags are nylon and paper.
In hot water, Nylon teabag releases 11.6 bn microplastics that are not meant for human consumption (Source: BBC) and takes an average of 30 to 40 years to decompose. (Source: The Hindu, 2022)
Paper teabags are treated with Epichlorohydrin, a chemical that’s also commonly used as a pesticide. Just like synthetics, they release toxins when dunked in boiling water.
Made with non-plastic, plant-based corn starch, Ausum teabags steep ZERO microplastics in your tea. These plant-based bags are 100% biodegradable and decompose within 3-6 months, without a trace! So sip on and breathe easy.
- Fill your cup with 200- 250 ml of hot water.
- Add teabag and steep for 2-3 minutes.
- Enjoy your cuppa.
Functional teas are a great way to get some mindful minutes. Take a break from your desk, walk to the kitchen, turn on the kettle and give yourself a 2 min break while you wait to make your brew. Functional teas are calming and soothing, primarily due to their ingredients, but the physical warmth provided by the hot beverage has an emotional appeal. As the colours unfurl into your cup and the gentle aroma of natural ingredients tickle your senses, stress starts to fade away.
Ask us why
Is this green tea bitter like others?
The green tea leaves used at Ausum are pan-roasted using traditional means. Since it's handmade and not produced in a factory, our green tea has little to none of the bitterness. To make your beverage experience better, we combined real green tea leaves with natural Indian spices, refreshing herbs and naturally sweet Licorice for better taste.
Can green tea help me lose weight?
Green tea surely contains fat-burning supplements and boosts metabolic rate, but this highly depends on the individual and their activity levels. Merely sipping on green tea while not engaging in any physical activity will definitely not help with weight loss.
Are there any side effects?
Made from 100% real green tea leaves, spices & herbs, this natural blend has no side effects upon regular consumption. It’s sugar-free, chemical-free and preservative-free.
Is it 'Made in India'?
All Ausum ingredients are locally & ethically sourced from small Indian farmers and handcrafted by us in Bangalore.
