Weekend Scouts Teazuro

Tea differently! Artisan tea for a nation that loves it

@teazuro

1. What inspired you to start Teazuro as an artisan tea connoisseur? Teazuro stemmed from a solution to a personal issue I had when I moved back to Pakistan. Being a daily green tea drinker, I could never find fresh, good quality teas or even a variety to choose from. That was particularly surprising, as Pakistan is the 3rd largest tea consuming country in the world. Therefore, the frustration of constantly having to stock up on teas when I or my family traveled inspired me to start this tea journey.

JANUARY 28, 2018 | 32

2. What is the brand philosophy behind Teazuro? Teazuro aims to introduce a different and new way for people to have “Tea�. We search for the finest teas, flowers and herbs, bring them to Pakistan and meticulously cup out each ingredient, carefully selecting each element of the blend. Tea for us represents memory, medicine, emotion and energy in a cup. At Teazuro, we want to create a connection between the teas and the people who drink it; we want to offer something for everyone. We have what you need when you need it, endless teas for your endless emotions.


weekend | Fashion something heavy, sweet and caffeinated. We offer different kinds of Teas- Black Teas, White Teas, Oolong Teas, Green Teas and Herbal (caffeine- free) Teas. We don’t have one single mood, so why settle for one type of tea? Therefore, Teazuro has a variety of extremely aromatic and flavourful teas in their selection, something for everyone in whatever mood they are in.

4. What is your take on custom Tea vs the regular chai dhaabas? I am a fan of regular doodh-patti and occasionally will go out to a dhaba or make a cup of at home. The classic black tea with milk and sugar is part of our culture, our lives and our identity as Pakistanis. However, what I am offering is something to complement it. Teazuro teas are an alternative to desi chai if you’re not in the mood for

JANUARY 28, 2018 | 33

3. Is Teazuro health specific? Teazuro has paired with few of the largest tea traders in Germany to create unique blends that are made using the highest quality ingredients, organically grown and sourced from suppliers certified by the Ethical Tea Partnership. Even though all teas we sell are organic, healthy and guilt-free, we have divided our range into two collections: TEATOX and CLASSIC. Our TEATOX Collection are our wellness teas. They have been specially blended with carefully sought ingredients that make it beneficial for certain ailments. For example, Cleanse is good for digestion, bloating, or any stomach issues. Skinny Night is a caffeine free, chamomile based tea, which has ingredients good for detoxing and weight-loss. Despite our TEATOX teas being classified as “healthy” we have ensured that they all taste great!

5.Who/What are your inspirations behind the different flavours? Selecting teas was probably the hardest part of starting this business. I tried 267 different flavours of teas and narrowed it down to 13 teas. Each tea unique in blend composition andflavour has its own story behind it. In the CLASSIC Collection, our Winter Wonderland, white tea with almond and orange, was inspired from creating the perfect blend for the chilly winter evenings, something that would evoke the holiday spirit. Whereas, Hint of Mint, is my morning cuppa. This peppermint black tea is a masterfully blended tea to give that refreshing jolt on sleepy mornings. In the TEATOX Collection, the Turmeric Healing, is a modern spin derived from an ancient recipe. This “haldi” based tea is a delicious bold and aromatic blend, inspired by my grandmother’s recipe as a cure to most ailments, it is the taste on everyone’s lips right now. Our Skinny Morning, inspired by its name, is a bright blend of herbs and botanicals for an invigorating start to the day. This matcha based caffeinated tea is packed with antioxidants and other ingredients to help get your metabolic rate high, to lose some inches and detox your body.


weekend | Fashion 6. Name 3 people, living or dead, who would you love to design a specific flavour of tea for. If I were to design a specific blend for anyone, it would be the following three people: a. Walter Elias Disney: Entrepreneur, animator, and film producer, Walt Disney, was known to be an imaginative and creative genius. All his work, was ahead of his time and lives on till today. Therefore, for him I would create a blend that would be transforming in nature. A blossoming tea that changes colour and releases a sweet scent, but would have an unexpected tangy flavour as it touches your lips. b. Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel: Fashion designer and businesswoman, Coco Chanel, a true visionary and inspirational personality. With her interest in perfumes, and hectic lifestyle, I would create a caffeinated blend with a robust flavour and highly aromatic smell. c. Donna Farhi, yoga teacher and author: Donna Farhi, is one of the most sought-after yoga instructors. For her, the blend I would create would have some calming, soothing, with strengthening ingredients. It would be a caffeine-free herbal blend with faint earthy tasting notes, a rejuvenating tea that would be easy to sip throughout the day.

JANUARY 28, 2018 | 34

7. Are there any new surprises in store for clients? Yes! We have lots of new exciting flavours that we are about to release and some special tea accessories! They will definitely be on everyone’s “must have” list.

must have skin essentials

No matter how much you take care of yourself and follow proper hygiene, there are things that are beyond our control like ageing, skin tanning, scalp damage; the list is endless! And we all have felt apprehensive about our appearance at least once in our lives. With so many inferiority complexes wearing on our sleeves regarding our appearance every day, there are some options that we might not be aware of.

All is fine when no lines!

Ageing is like a bad omen and early ageing is a nightmare. The first sign of ageing starts to appear on face in the late 20s. Just to clarify; it is not a disease but a normal process which can be delayed with some precautions. As the age graph rises, our skin loses its tightness as the skin cells gradually start to divide which makes the skin’s inner layer thinner. To decrease the signs of ageing, medical science has come up with various procedures and methods. Under the anti wrinkle treatment, the most sophisticated treatment in the world is thermi-rase. It is safe, toxin free and a painless procedure which provides instant results that last several years so you can look young and beautiful for a longer run.
