Created in 1994 by Arlette Rohmer, Les Jardins de Gaïa, the first organic and fair trade Tea House in France, offers today more than 750 references of organic, premium and ethical teas, herbal teas and spices. Thanks to an exacting sourcing, closed relationship with its partner-producers and a real signature for its in-house recipes, all of the production is handemade in its premise in Alsace (North-East of France). Les Jardins de Gaïa is more than 25 years of savoir-faire and passion of tea at the service of its own brands (Les Jardins de Gaïa for tea and herbal teas and Terra Madre for spices) but also for its professional customers (private label and trading) from the organic store to the delicatessen via the HORECA. At Les Jardins de Gaïa, the flavouring is not intended to cover the original flavours of the tea but on the contrary to magnify it and bring a complement of soul. Committed since its creation, the family compagny is a model of sustainable development with due respect for the Earth and the Humans: from the tea leaf to the cup, all of its making and marketing process of a product conforms to its values and integrates organic or biodynamic farming, fair trade, respect for the environment, support for small producers and C.S.R.
Light as the air, swept away by the wind, feel the pleasure of travelling at will in a universe of possibilities and exploring the world without restrictions. This airy recipe on a base of green tea, with floral flavours of violet, buchu and elderflower invites you to break free and take flight with a few delicious mouthfuls.

OLIO DI SERRA
Extra virgin olive oil producer, North Puglia region
Olio di Serra prides itself on being a local and family business. Born in Lyon with Italian origins, Dorian Tota works to promote his native village – Serracapriola. Located in the Gargano by the Adriatic sea, it is a famous terroir from the North Puglia region in Italy. Year after year, Olio di Serra offers an exclusive olive oil directly out of the home-grown olive trees in Serracapriola. Dorian’s passionate work aims to transmit his family’s ancestral craftsmanship and the superior quality of their Alto Tavoliere (PDO) olives. For the past two years, Olio di Serra has provided an extra virgin organic olive oil obtained through cold extraction straight out of a Serracapriolian mill. The family are therefore responsible for the growing of the olives, the harvest, the transformation into oil, the bottling and the distribution of this green gold directly from France. As a natural consequence: the traceability of Olio di Serra runs from the olive trees into the bottle.
Olio de Serra works hard to create a product of superior quality resulting from strong family roots, a specific method of elaboration, a real traceability and the uniqueness of its origins. Indeed, the Serracapriola village is renowned for harvesting its olives from mid-October every year thanks to a mediterranean microclimate which naturally irrigates the olive trees all year round.
In addition to this, Olio di Serra also aims to promote other artisanal products from Serracapriola. As to shine the light on various products from the Gargano region, we have collaborated with local artisans. Just like us, they work as a family, share our respect for Mother Earth and devote their everyday labour to consumers interested in fine south Italian delicacies. Among our range of products, you will find: typical handcrafted pasta from the Gargano region, vegetables and vegetable creams marinated in extra virgin olive oil, a 100 % Pugliese experience with delicious products from talented craftsmen/women from this region.
To all deli and restaurant owners, Olio di Serra is here for you, with its extra virgin olive oil, handcrafted pasta, various jars of vegetables and vegetable creams in extra virgin olive oil. Live events and testing experiences are also available in the shops all year round so that consumers can enjoy the story of the brand while tasting the products. From our olives to your jars, there is only one hand: ours!

Hence, the incomparable chemical and organoleptic characteristics of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, winner of the Gold Award at 2018 and 2019 New York International Competition, winner of the Gold Award in Berlin 2020, winner of the Gold award in 2019, 2020 and 2021 at prestigious contest in Tokyo, recognized by 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 EVOOLEUM World's TOP 100 Extra Virgin Olive Oils Guide with a score of 89/100, by the famous BIBENDA guide awarding it with 4 GOCCE and by Gambero Rosso Extra Virgin Olive Oil Guide with 3 FOGLIE, selected also in the SLOW FOOD oil guide and by the guide FLOS OLEI 2019, 2020 and 2021 and it is part of the SlowFood Presidium.
Olio Guglielmi is now exported to 30 countries in the best gourmet corner of the world.
The "Le Monocultivar" line was born from the desire to let consumers experience Apulia through the three most representative cultivars of our region.
This is how the Coratina, the Peranzana and the Ogliarola come to "life" on the label through somatic features to express the organoleptic characteristics of the oil.
And even the landscapes represented on the labels, with their peculiar symbols, emphasize the Apulian territories in which the three varieties have origin.
Everything takes place in our oil mill, where the three precious EVO oils are extracted at very low temperature, each of them from a single cultivar.
Olives are still green, the harvest is done in the first 10 days of October and every morning milled in the next two hours from harvest, to guarantee fragrance of aromas and harmony of flavors.
It comes out that the production is indeed very precious and limited to 6,000 bottles of 500ml per cultivar type.
“Monogram” is the line of Olio Guglielmi dedicated to Extra Virgin Olive Oil composed of different types of oil: Leggero, Intenso, Biologico, Fruttato, Fior d’o and Flavored.
Intenso (Intense Fruity) created only from Coratina olive variety. Monogram Intenso is the ideal olive oil for those who love strong flavors.
Fruttato (Medium Fruity) when the spicy and bitter of Coratina meet the sweetness of Ogliarola olive variety, the result is Monogram Fruttato.
Leggero (Mild Fruity) created from a blend of olive varieties known for their soft and round taste, Ogliarola and Peranzana.
Fior d’O (Unfiltered) Monogram is a new oil, rustic and genuine, that preserves that bitter, spicy and fruity mix of “freshly extracted” olive oil.
“Monogram” is born from the desire to mark with a graphic sign a collection dedicated to premium quality extra virgin olive oils, a seal of guarantee of excellence and genuineness.
Olives of our groves are cultivated with attention to enhance the territory of Puglia, the secular custodian of culture of the olive tree.
Monogram Flavored line is dedicated to condiments based on extra virgin olive oil. Each flavored oil is obtained from the simultaneous milling of olives, herbs and citrus.
These flavored oils find their best use in the kitchen, both in the preparation phase and in the raw seasoning, in the marinating of raw fish, salads and grilled fish, in cooking game and tasty meats and finally in the preparation of desserts and pastries.
