Campaign Description

Parch brews Traditional Chinese Herbal Teas known as leung cha or liang cha. These delicious, refreshing herbal teas are made in Canada in small batches. We brew in accordance with Traditional Chinese Medicine practices using superherbs prunella vulgaris and silverweed. Our Original tea reminds us of our childhood while our Cranberry tea gives the drink a modern twist. Through our campaign, we hope to share this aspect of our Chinese cultural heritage with the broader community by producing our tea in convenient cans. This will enable us to get our product into stores and restaurants across Canada

Our Story

Growing up, our parents would give us traditional Chinese herbal tea when our bodies felt off-balance. This might include breakouts, nosebleeds, cramps, canker sores, rashes and other ailments. We didn't understand why or how, but these drinks would made us feel better. As adults away from home, we craved our parent's teas, especially after a party, eating fast food or as a pairing to our favourite hot and spicy foods. 

Chinese herbal teas known as leung cha have been found throughout China for more than a hundred years. These teas are traditionally used restore the body’s harmony and heath according to principals of Traditional Chinese Medicine and have been used as remedies for a range of health problems. We strive to enrich the place we live by sharing a part of our identity and hope that we empower others to do the same. 

Parch brews beverages that nurture the body by embracing Chinese culture and tradition. Our mission is to preserve our tradition by learning the principals by which it follows and share them to the community with the highest quality.

We are excited to bring you along on this journey - follow us on Instagram @parch_tea for regular updates!

About Traditional Chinese Medicine

According to the principals of Traditional Chinese Medicine, harmony and health is achieved by balancing the warm and cool energies in our bodies. Our indulgent activities and diet resulted in excessive internal heat so we were craving the cooling nature of this Chinese herbal tea. Although this tea is popular in parts of Asia at Chinese herb shops, a convenient, all natural and high quality version was not available in Canada.

We created Parch to share a piece of our culture and heritage in a delicious, refreshing way.

FAQs

What is a cooling tea?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body’s harmony and health is achieved by balancing the yin (cool) and yang (warm) energy in the body. Too much internal heat (yang) may manifest in inflammation, breakouts, skin rashes and itchiness, mouth ulcers, dry mouth, nose bleeds or headaches. Parch is a gentle cooling tea to offset excessive internal heat.

What is Parch made of?

Parch teas are traditional herbal remedies with two key ingredients - Prunella Vulgaris and Silverweed. These ingredients are selected, dried, roasted and prepared based on Traditional Chinese Medicine practices to achieve the best results. Prunella Vulgaris, also known as a “self-heal herb” has traditionally been used for inflammation, immune system support, detox of the lymphatic system, and support of the liver and kidneys through removal of excess heat. Silverweed has historically been used for intestinal issues, cramps, and swelling.

Are shipping and GST included in the price?

Parch offers free delivery within Calgary! Please add the *SHIPPING* reward for orders elsewhere in Canada.  GST is included in the price of the product.
