Tea, like other infusions, allows communication and meeting between peoples, in addition to medicinal uses in other cultures, so a distinctive and convivial drink cannot be missing at the 23rd Craft Fair.
Rico Claromecco is a company based on the sale of filtered tea blends, with agronomic character in all its ingredients. To find out more about the situation, Brand participant Emilia García Aventurio spoke to This Newspaper. “It is the first time that I attend the fair, the truth is that I came with high expectations due to the investment in the value of the position, the effort has been rewarded, so we will have to do precisely the figures but at first glance I am indeed very satisfied with the development of the fair,” he said.
One of the main pillars of Rico Claromecco tea blends is its agronomy, present in all the ingredients. “The tea blend is my recipe. I find the Agricultural Ecology Network interesting, which brings us closer to Argentinian producers who care about resources and the health of consumers and workers. I think it’s important that we start to understand the concept of agricultural science, healthy food and healthy food. Without poison.. I put a lot of emphasis on it because we eat all day long, so it’s important to know what we’re eating,” says the craftsman.
In the same vein, he pointed out that “the sand he gave is to think of these mixtures in such a way that a good tea can be at your fingertips and you can end up with a small bag”. It’s the hangover of the whole industry, because loose leaf tea is already sold at a high price that not everyone has access to, so you end up drinking some sort of hot juice that’s loaded with product chemicals, preservatives and flavorings.
He also described that drinking loose tea maintains a ritual around the infusion. “It invites you to think about the minute you do it, how hydrated those locks are, the scent that tends to exfoliate, and how long it takes to get used to the immediacy with the bag. it’s done, it’s three seconds and the water is already black, however it takes five minutes until it’s done with wires and that’s how long it should take, it’s like growing up, someone’s three years don’t happen in a few seconds,” the entrepreneur pointed out.
As Emilia noted, all of the ingredients in the tea blend are agricultural. “I bought basic tea from a maker in Obera, Michigan. He then arranged it with cinnamon sticks, cardamom or hibiscus. I buy these inputs from an importer but I do it in a pure way, without processes because in this way I can guarantee the content of my tea”, he explained.
Regarding other simple additions, he said that some are domestic: “I have roses that I started growing after making these teas, because I thought the petals I had bought did not accompany me and that I should obtain better results. The rose I cut and dried its petals, but it dries naturally and given the time it takes to dry the petal. Ditto for the citrus zest. It’s the curve of time and patience it takes to make sure the ingredients retain all of their essential oils.
Rico Claromecco can be found on Instagram and Facebook with the same name, and will also be present at the Balneario Producers’ Fair, between January 1 and February 28. Also, during the year, tea can be obtained at the caravan editorial complex in Alsina. Al 42. The interviewer concluded by pointing out that “tea is medicine for the soul”.
