JSC "Domochai" is first to produce black tea from local willow herb

JSC "Domochai" is the first Belarusian enterprise to start production of black tea from local willow herb, director general of the enterprise Natalia Podlesnykh told.

Specialists focused at the idea after the plant's re-branding. The very name of the enterprise includes the word "chai" (meaning "tea"); and of course people prefer drinking tea with cookies. "So, we decided to restart production of herbal tea "Ivan-chai" ("Willow herb") that used to be very popular in Russia in the XIXth century; besides, there is plenty of this herb in Mogilev region.

It took several months to bring the idea to life. "The initial batch of the tea was presented during the tea ceremony held at "Kupalle" festival in Alexandria (the ceremony was designed by specialists of Mogilev University of Food Technologies). The tea enjoyed high popularity - there were long queues to taste the tea offered with cookies", the DG told.

This year the company plans to produce about 800 kg of such tea. "In future we will increase output and offer new sorts of tea, e.g. - with dried berries and other medicinal herbs. "We are sure our production will find its customer, because it's tasty and has medicinal properties", Natalia Podlesnykh specified. Willow herb quenches thirst, tonifies; it helps to cure headache, migraine, eases nerves, etc. And it causes no addiction.
