Stressed, blessed, or tea obsessed? Join us for a virtual tutored-tasting and exploration of tea’s value for mind and body health. Serves 4

About this Event

The concept of tea drinking is ancient, yet new ideas and blends for tea consumption are constantly evolving. In this educational virtual seminar, Ludmilla Wikkeling-Scott, founder and owner of Drink Our Hi-G tea company provides instruction and inspiration for using tea and traditional herbs and spices for your health, healing, and overall happiness.

The popular Drink Our Hi-G brand (the Hi-G stands for Hibiscus and Ginger) is widely associated with health and wellness, relaxation, and having fun, all while nurturing individuals and communities through tea. Their carefully handcrafted teas include some of your favorite herbs, flowers, fruits, roots and spices—bringing you a unique experience unlike those traditionally seen in western tea tasting events.

In this virtual Tea & Wellness event, you’ll be led through a guided, tutored-tasting of four teas/tisanes while you learn about their amazing health benefits for calming, relaxing, supporting detox, promoting better sleep, aiding in digestion and weight loss, improving skin and hair, boosting brain power and more. This seminar provides practical, accessible, and easy-to-understand information that can be incorporated into one’s daily life and routine.

Take time and focus on self-care starting with some creative tea blends that can easily be incorporated into your daily routine for your overall health and wellness.

Ludmilla's journey is marked by her early love for plants, flowers, roots, fruits and spices, and the traditional use of these wonders of Mother Earth while growing up. She was born in Rotterdam, where tea was often associated with Western and Asian cultures, while Caribbean and African communities have also been consuming tea for centuries, using all kinds of plants and flowers for medicinal and entertainment purposes. Since her family is from Suriname, when they returned to their country of origin in her early years, she learned a little more about the different ways in which various regions of the world perceive the use of teas and herbs. As a college student her consumption of tea for medicinal purposes further grew her love for the diversity in the beverage.

When she took care of her father, before he passed away, she tried implementing tea and tisanes into his daily regimen and to honor him, she founded Drink Our Hi-G, a loose-leaf tea company focused on Hibiscus and Ginger (Hi-G) and a variety of green, white and herbal varieties to create healthier communities. Her background in public health and policy and research, and her commitment to honor her father’s legacy, gave way to her focus on tea consumption to address health behavior in an era when chronic disease is more the norm than the exception. The current pandemic has further created a desperate cry for healthier beverages by many. Virtual Tea Tasting is one of the ways in which Ludmilla reaches out to communities to share the use of teas and tisanes in the most practice, yet entertaining and healing way for any age. Dedicated to changing health behavior and improving health outcomes, Ludmilla has more than 20 years of experience in public health. She has trained more than 100 community-based organizations on leadership, public health policy, program development, advocacy, and collaboration, while she served in the U.S. House of Representative and as Commissioner for the Governor of Maryland. Ludmilla holds a Master and Doctor of Public Health and received her Bachelor of Science in Physiology.
