A special offer - celebrating Mothers with The Spice People
I have known Liz from The Spice People all my life, together with my husband Norm. We all grew up on farming properties near Wellington in central west NSW. Liz and Norm were 4km apart, north east of Wellington, myself 20km (as the crow flies) west from them.
It’s so lovely to have lifelong friends who you cross paths with here, there and everywhere throughout your life together - always grateful to have that connection with each other.
Sitting with Liz and her mum last year over a cup of Chai at the Cactus Café and Gallery in Wellington it was fun to catch up. It was then that I floated the idea of collaborating on a project together and suggested Mother’s Day.
We both have similar values and vision for our products, companies and families; we both have such a strong connection believing in who we are and what we do. To team up together – well it’s a no brainer. Two girls from the land; now two ladies of successful companies supporting each other and coming together for Mother’s Day – wow how exciting.
Mothers are those extra special people in your life that we all love and admire. Frankly we can never thank them enough for giving us our start (and sometimes middle!) and well, when you are lucky enough to be one yourself, it makes it all the more special a day to celebrate.
I had not been a Chai tea drinker in the past. Liz introduced me to it with The People’s Chai. It’s still hands down one of the nicest I’ve tried. It’s blended right here in Australia, and partnered to help farmers in developing countries. There’s no real need to add sugar or any sweeteners - it has the perfect amount of smoothness, and brewed correctly it brings out the natural sweetness. Of course if you have a sweet tooth add some honey! All-natural tastes but with the added health kick, what more could one want?
The best thing going for The Spice People’s chai is that the blends are so uplifting that just like they say, a little goes a long way. And there are no preservatives or additives. I would personally recommend The People’s Chai as quite literally that - much like the late “people’s princess” Diana, Princess of Wales, sweet yet smooth and all-round divine. I now enjoy a cup everyday… you need to try it!
Norm and I live on a sheep grazing property that has been in Norms family for over 100 years. Breeding a beautiful fibre merino wool, we always wanted to follow our wool to the final product. And just as Love Merino is fibre to fabric – The Spice People’s products are paddock to plate. Not only that but their website is amazing - jam packed full of spices, recipes and ideas – from easy to cook for the simple souls in the kitchen to ingredients that should be used on Master Chef. It’s been such a pleasure to team up with my dear friend to bring you this offer.
