What is ShalvaTea™?

"Shalva"?  "Shalva" is an ancient Hebrew word (שלווה) for peace, calmness, tranquility and prosperity.  On ShalvaTea's logo you'll also see "שלוותי", a Hebrew play on words that sounds like shalva-tea but literally means "my shalva".


The word "shalva" appears in the Old Testament, in a psalm attributed to King David (122:7)  "...May there be peace between your walls, shalva within your palaces..."

                "...יְהִי שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ שַׁלְוָה בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ..."


The ShalvaTea™ Story

ShalvaTea™ was founded in 2015 by David Ross. While getting his Master's Degree in Forestry at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Ross spent a summer tramping across and studying the Carmel Forest, trying to understand causes of the devastating fire of 2010.  He returned in 2012 on a US Fulbright Fellowship to research market-based solutions towards incentivizing better forest management in Israel, as a strategy to help prevent future fires.  Along the way, exploring Israel's wilderness from the Golan to Eilat, he fell in love with the local plants and flowers and found that many were quite tasty as teas!  In 2015, ShalvaTea™ was born.
