Origin Story: Our Quest for Sustainable Stress Relief
After working in stressful jobs requiring long hours and a constant supply of coffee, we began the search for a way to relieve stress in a sustainable fashion, in an effort to work on self care. During this process we were introduced to kava through a friend who had raved about after a trip to Fiji. Kava provided an easy way to relieve stress, tension and anxiety, without the negative side effects of alcohol. After experiencing varying degrees of quality from kavas in the market, we sought to directly source and bring to you the kind of premium quality kava tea we had been searching for.
Our name was inspired by the Coral Sea that lies between the kava growing island nations of Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, as well as the Great Barrier Reef along Australia’s Gold Coast.
Our Commitment to Environmental Sustainability:
Coral Reef Restoration
We fell in love at an early age with our oceans through aquariums and much later scuba diving and underwater photography (maybe The Voyage of the Mimi also had something to do with it). Within our lifetime, there has been an accelerated decline in the health of our reefs worldwide. Moreover, they are the keystone of life and abundance that our oceans provide humanity. As part of our commitment to combating global climate change and restoring our coral reefs to their former glory, 5% of profit will be donated to non-profits focused on the herculean task of restoring our coral reefs.
As part of our company ethos, we strive to provide premium products with a minimal impact on our environment. As such, we are committed to utilizing the most sustainable packaging options currently available. Our kraft standup pouches are Biotrē™, made of 60% (by weight) renewable plant resources and 60% breaks down into healthy compost using processes from OECD and conditions taken from ASTM standards.
