Sip Tea Save Elephants

Elephantea, a groundbreaking range of handpicked tea from Ceylon, Sri Lanka, is now being sipped and enjoyed by consumers around the country.  The deliciously big flavors manufactured in the Golden Valley of Bogawantalawa are combined with a passion for doing good – a percentage of the profit generated from the sales of elephantea is used to fund non-profit organizations based in Sri Lanka to help raise awareness and create proactive changes as to the plight of elephants and to spearhead action to prevent poaching, harboring and harming of Sir Lankan wild elephants.

The elephantea herd is led by entrepreneurial father-daughter duo, Ron and Shani Atapattu. Moved and feeling the need to create awareness and proactive change after a trip to Sri Lanka, Shani approached Ron about founding a socially responsible tea company to assist in the conservation of Sri Lankan elephants. This is how elephantea started!

“Our family trickles down from generations of tea growers and elephant activists in Sri Lanka,”  said Ron Atapattu, co-founder of elephantea. “All of us at elephantea are humbled and honored by the opportunity to make a real difference in helping these majestic animals thrive and roam free.

”Sri Lanka’s ideal elevation, cool winds and soft sunshine contribute to making elephantea one of the finest teas in the world. Ceylon tea is known for its high quality and rich tradition, and elephantea is no different. The elephantea selection includes a variety of organic green and black teas, as well as noncaffeinated teas such as chamomile. Boxes of 20 bags sell for $4.99 at Amazong and Walmart.  Click here for list of retailers in your area selling elephantea.

“Sri Lanka has such a vibrant culture and delicious varieties of native Ceylon tea, that it was a natural fit for us to bring our vision to life of creating the best tea with a strong socially responsible vision,” said Shani Atapattu, president and co- founder of elephantea. “Our commitment to preserving its beauty for generations to come is the driving force behind everything we do at elephantea.”  For more info or to make a purchase, visit  #SipTeaSaveElephants
