Waveland, a new loose leaf tea brand featuring a proprietary, broad-spectrum CBD blend, is launching nationally.
Waveland was founded by Jen Slothower, a certified sommelier and former financial analyst turned food marketing consultant, and Bryan Hill, an entrepreneur behind Botanica, an Arizona-based, state-licensed cannabis retailer. Jen and Bryan created Waveland to combine their excitement for the fast-growing CBD market with a passion for healthy living. The result is a functional beverage designed for daily use, made using high-quality, straightforward ingredients and thoughtfully designed packaging.
Waveland’s infusion process is the core of its product development. The team worked with best-in-class food chemists to develop a proprietary batch infusion process, enabling broad-spectrum CBD molecules to adhere to individual tea leaves that release when steeped. This results in batch consistency and efficacy, cup after cup. Waveland also exclusively sources its hemp from farmers throughout the Pacific Northwest, who practice sustainable, non-GMO agriculture.
Fifteen biodegradable pyramid tea bags, each containing 10mg of CBD, are packaged in a colorful, resealable, stand-up pouch. The matte packaging comes in four distinctive colors that correspond with each tea blend:
- Black tea: A South Indian caffeinated black tea that’s softly floral, overlaid with bright citrus notes and just a hint of tartness. Ingredients include broad-spectrum CBD extract, black tea, all natural flavors, hibiscus flowers, orange peel and cornflower petals.
- Green tea: A caffeinated blend of peppermint leaves and classic Chinese gunpowder green tea with minty high notes and earthy mid tones. Ingredients include broad-spectrum CBD extract, green tea and peppermint leaf.
- Herbal tea: A caffeine-free herbal tea that’s heavy on botanicals. A South African rooibos base is layered with cinnamon, sarsaparilla, licorice and other botanicals. Ingredients include broad-spectrum CBD extract, cinnamon, rooibos tea, ginseng pieces, peppermint leaf, echinacea root, sarsaparilla root and licorice root.
- White tea: Shou Mei white tea is blended with yerba mate, cardamom and mango notes to create a complex, spicy-sweet caffeinated blend. Ingredients include broad-spectrum CBD extract, white tea, yerba mate tea, peppermint leaf, all natural flavors and safflower petals
All blends are formulated for year-round use, hot or iced, and are available on wavelandischill.af for $20.
