People with autism have traditionally found it more difficult than others to gain employment and live independent, fulfilling lives. To help the plight of people on the autism spectrum, AngelChild – a local organisation founded in 2013 to promote employment for those with autism and people with special educational needs – is launching a new herbal tea campaign, in which it will be selling teas that are handmade by people with autism.
The soothing teas are touted to have wide-ranging health benefits, and come in six flavours, from dried tangerine peel and lentil flower to apple flower, rosebuds, and sweet osmanthus; to dried longan pulp, wolfberry, and rosebuds; and more.
AngelChild's six new herbal teas
The organisation states that a lack of understanding in society leads to serious challenges for individuals on the autism spectrum trying to find employment, and so as well as producing delicious teas that promote the wellbeing of those that drink them, this campaign is designed to help provide jobs and training for those with autism. The teas are available to be enjoyed hot or iced there and then, or packaged to be taken home.
The tea, along with tea-related accessories produced in collaboration with American brand Tuxon, can be purchased at various establishments around the city, including Yotsuba Cafe in Tai Hang, the Central and Sai Ying Pun branches of Zen Body HK wellbeing centre, and various EC Bento vending machines around town. So what are you waiting for? Get sipping and make a positive difference.
