About Urbal Tea
“Nick is knowledgeable, accommodating, and very friendly. Urbal Tea is simple, healthful, and delicious!”
Even though I didn’t know it at the time, I’ve been cultivating the idea of Urbal Tea since my early childhood. My parents would take the family to our cabin in the woods almost every weekend in the summer, so I spent a lot of time with nature. We picked morel mushrooms, blackberries, and other fruits that grew aplenty in the area. My parents taught me at a young age to respect nature and all living things, and being outside amongst the glory of Mother Earth gave me a newfound outlook on the cycle of life and our connection to it. These –and many more life experiences like it– directly impacted my desire to learn about what nature provides to us to heal, refresh, and preserve the vitality of our body and mind.
The idea for Urbal tea was born out of curiosity and open-mindedness on a spring morning in 2011. That day I awoke with a sore throat and heavy chest. My first thought was to run out to the store to pick up some cough syrup and drops. Instead, however, I grabbed my laptop and decided to explore other natural remedies. Several hours into my research I had become captivated by all the information that existed about natural methods of healing. Eager to try out one of these natural remedies, I headed to my local health store and brought home the herbs recommended to ease my ailment. That day marked the start of my journey towards Urbal Tea.
The next step was an apprenticeship in Madison, Wisconsin. I studied herbalism with the intention of growing spiritually as well as mentally. Herbalism is an intimate relationships between human, plant, and planet. One of the most valuable things I learned was to question conventional reality and beliefs. Scientific tradition is the norm in Western society, but other methods like holistic healing have a much longer history of practice. Holistic tradition focuses on the individual and nourishing of the body, mind, and spirit as a whole. It is my belief, and the belief of those that came before me, that the body was designed to heal itself through the gifts of Mother Nature, and that we should embrace the healing powers she can provide us.
All of our teas are specially formulated with positive energy and loving thought. All of the herbs within the teas are of the highest quality and picked with care and respect for the plant. The loose herbs are then freshly dried to preserve their effectiveness and flavor. My goal is to promote the healing powers of tea and to educate anyone who is interested in experiencing this ancient form of healing. There is no end to the wonders of herbs, Mother Nature, and the powers they possess. Welcome to the world of Urbal Tea.
There are so many health benefits of herbal tea, but remember to use your common sense when using herbs and spices and drinking herbal teas. Educate yourself about herbs and spices before using them, and always, always consult your herbal practitioner, naturopathic or homeopathic doctor, or other healthcare professional first before taking any herbal tea to help manage any illness or health condition - especially if you are taking any prescription medication, are being treated for any health concern or disease, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
