Magic Hour – an everyday luxury brand of organic, hand-crafted premium teas, founded by Zhena Muzyka in Ojai, Calif. – launched its newest line, the Wanderlust Tea Collection.
Artfully representing seasonal tastes and traditional herbs from around the globe, the new Magic Hour line is aimed to take wellness seekers' and foodies' senses on a culinary tour of the world's most exotic locations through interpretations of regional cuisine blended with wellness botanicals.
Each month this year, Magic Hour will release a new vibrant elixir from the founders’ travels and sourcing from small farmers in various regions – from the storied jungles of Tulum to the intoxicating Amalfi Coast. These one-of-a-kind teas promote healing and support targeted areas of wellness, according to the company.
“As founder and master tea blender at Magic Hour, I have been blessed to experience the magic of exploring the world's most storied locations to source our organic, regenerative botanicals and teas from small farmers,” said Muzyka. “Through 25 years studying folkloric medicinal teas and deeply nourishing local cuisines, I am honored to share the culmination of our world's finest healing blends with the Wanderlust Collection. I wanted to bottle these experiences, flavors, scents and healing benefits to share with tea drinkers as we continue our mission to connect our world through tea ceremony.”
