TEABALLS & BWMK | TEABALLS social responsibility

Our Teaballs are produced in cooperation with the Dienstleistungszentrum (DLZ) Langenselbold. The DLZ is a workshop for people with disabilities (WfbM) and belongs to the Behinderten-Werk Main-Kinzig e.V. (BWMK). It offers people with disabilities work and qualification in various professional fields.
The BWMK wrote us some lines about it, which we would like to share with you:

Unsere Teaballs werden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Dienstleistungszentrum (DLZ) Langenselbold hergestellt. Das DLZ ist eine Werkstatt fĂŒr Menschen mit Behinderung (WfbM) und gehört zum Behinderten-Werk Main-Kinzig e.V. (BWMK). Es bietet Menschen mit  BeeintrĂ€chtigung Arbeit und Qualifizierung in unterschiedlichen Berufsfeldern.  Das BWMK hat uns einige Zeilen dazu geschrieben, die wir gerne mit Euch teilen möchten:

"Workshops for disabled people are highly specialized institutions of participation in working life for people with severe disabilities. They offer vocational training, work as well as support in personal development.
The work in workshops cannot be directly compared with full-time gainful employment, as the workshop provides further services such as various care activities, occupational and physiotherapy etc. depending on the disability-related support needs of the individual.

Furthermore, so-called work-accompanying measures are offered, which the employees also take advantage of during working hours.
The work-accompanying measures serve the personality development, as well as the holistic health promotion of the persons with disabilities and the social integration. They include numerous offers of education, qualification and from the cultural and sports area.
In addition, people with disabilities who do not have any other income apart from the workshop fee receive state assistance for their livelihood, for example subsidies for rent payments, care services, pension for reduced earning capacity and basic income support.
However, it is also clear that the labour market, society, the state and also the workshops must work even more consistently to bring people with disabilities into the normal labour market. For inclusion to succeed, society needs to change its way of thinking. We can only promote occupational participation as a team. Every individual, including those in the company, is called upon.
Workshops do much more than "just" facilitate the transition to the general labour market. Realising transitions is not the main task of the workshops. The task of workshops and thus their services are manifold: vocational training, personality development, maintaining and ideally expanding the performance or earning capacity of people with disabilities, to name just a few."

About the product

What are Teaballs anyway?

Teaballs are plant extracts pressed into tablet form. The extract pressings can be dissolved in hot and cold water, producing a tea-like beverage. An ultra-thin, mineral protective layer prevents the teaballs from sticking together. In contrast to soluble tea (instant tea), Teaballs do not contain any additives such as sweeteners or flavor enhancers.

This is how the teaballs are created:

The manufacturing process first starts with the plant from which the extracts are to be obtained. Exclusively selected leaves of the plant then enter a gentle steam extraction process that preserves all the valuable ingredients. The powder is then processed and pressed into the typical tablet form. This is followed by refinement and quality control, during which the teaballs are dusted and tested for size, weight and solubility.

1. the plant

For our Teaballs we use only selected tea leaves.

2. extraction
