Davidson’s Organics offers free tea as healthy Halloween alternative


childrens18-5623519-6807210Davidson’s Organics, a Sparks-based producer of teas, herbs, cocoa and spices, will be giving away non-caffeinated children’s tea packages to Northern Nevada families and children as a healthy alternative to Halloween trick-or-treat candy.

Davidson’s certified organic products are sourced from multi-generational tea growers in India, offering customers freshly picked, high-quality teas that are also certified as fair trade.

Davidson’s Organics owners Kunall Patel and Promilla Mohan came up with the idea of giving away their tea to Northern Nevada families as a way to offer an alternative to the high-fructose corn syrup and sugar-laden candy that present a health dilemma for many parents.

Davidson’s Organics’ child-friendly teas are non-caffeinated and made with USDA Certified Organic dried honey. Tea flavors include Bing Cherry with Almonds and a Children’s Tea package that mixes together dried honey, hibiscus, rooibos, chamomile and lemon myrtle.

“Children love Davidson’s Organics colorful packaging and healthy, organic sweetness and fruit flavors,” said Kunall Patel. “The tea truly is a treat for children who have been out trick-or-treating all evening in brisk fall temperatures.”

Those interested in Davidson’s Organics tea giveaway can pick up the free tea at Davidson’s Organics Sparks outlet store at 700 E. Glendale Ave, in Sparks across the interstate from the Sparks Marina. The outlet store is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the tea will be available until Halloween. The giveaway is limited to one box of 18 tea bags per family.
