ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. (PIX11) — Tea is the second most widely consumed beverage worldwide, followed only by water. The global tea market this year is expected to top $53 billion.
With more people becoming health conscious, there’s a growing demand for herbal teas to help reduce stress and inflammation. Many big companies produce the teas, but mar one entrepreneur in New Jersey is making a mark with her woman-owned tea company.
Zahira Marmar finds peace and tranquility in the garden of her Englewood Cliffs home. She tends her herbal plants and picks up the scent of success. She feels she has found the perfect elixir for a healthy tea, the organic herbal ingredients she produces in the products she sells at the Hrbvor tea company she founded less than three years ago.
Marmar said growing up in St. Martin in the Caribbean. She spent a good deal of time with her mother in an herb garden.
“I remember her sending me out if i had a fever to get some herbs,” Marmar reflected. “If i had a cough, I’d get some thyme. For whatever ailment i had, for just well-being, i had a tea.”
Just as she was inspired by her mother for the love and appreciation of organic herbs and tea, Marmar said her children inspired her to create a healthy brand of tea.
“My need was to send them to school with healthy beverages, not those sugar-loaded drinks,” she said. “They shared it with their friends. It caught on and it became the Hrbvor we’re drinking today. The children definitely inspired me to start this.”
In a short period of time, Hrbvor has produced six varieties of tea, including an herbal ice tea brand of still and sparkling teas. The benefits they have offered her children motivated the branding of names.
“Before a basketball game, a quick pickup was needed. That’s when we took Revive tea,” Marmar explained. “Before a test, focus tea, and at times, they would need calm, calm tea. it really warms my heart that when my children don’t feel well, the first thing they ask for is a cup of tea.”
The organic herbs are harvested from different regions of the world, from Ethiopia to Indonesia and are processed in a plant in Utah.
“I don’t think we’re successful yet. When we get a new order, that is a little taste of success for me,” Marmar maintained.
Although she’s busy running a woman-owned business, Marmar has not lost sight of the fact that her family remains her best cup of tea.
“I would say my family keeps me in check, my children in particular. They need mommy time,” Marmar said.
“An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral,” Famed attorney Clarence Darrow once said.
Marma’s idea grew out of a garden in St. Martin. Her mission today is to turn a generation of families onto the amazing flavors and benefits of herbal tea and to make the world a healthier place—one tea at a time.

PARAMUS — "Bariolage." Typically, the word is used by musicians to describe the special effect they achieve on a violin by rapidly alternating on open and stopped strings.
On Tuesday night, however, bariolage was the only obstacle separating eighth grader Lucas Ke of Englewood Cliffs from victory at the annual North Jersey Spelling Bee, after a four-hour competition with some of the county’s best spellers.
Ke, a first-timer at the bee, was up to the task, spelling the word perfectly to end a long night of wordplay.
“I was really nervous because after a certain point, it wasn’t about stuff that I knew,” Ke said after his victory. “I was pretty much guessing stuff.”
Story continues below the gallery.
The bee — held in person again after two years of remote competition due to COVID — brought together 53 local students from grades 3 to 8 at Bergen Community College in Paramus.
The evening started off simply enough, with words like "banana" and "penguin" easing the spellers into the competition. But as the night went on, the words became increasingly challenging: Could you, dear reader, handle "incogitant" (meaning thoughtless or inconsiderate) or "prelapsarian" (belonging to a time before humankind’s supposed departure from innocence or goodness)?
Aidan Kapadia, a sixth grader from Emerson, took second place after a finale that went 14 rounds, seven of them a faceoff among Ke, Kapadia and third-place finalist Dave Rampersad, a seventh grader from Paramus. Kapadia then went head to head with Ke for another seven rounds.
“It was a balance between excitement and ecstasy and nervousness,” said Kapadia, who was competing in his second North Jersey bee.
Although Kapadia couldn’t say what he felt the hardest word of the night was, he did remember his favorite, chosen for its simplicity: "nene," a nearly extinct goose from Hawaii.
Ke, who said he didn’t study before the event, will now move on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., to face spellers from all over the country. The event will be held May 30 to June 1.
“I’m pretty excited,” Ke said.

Englewood Cliffs-based Unilever USA completed the previously announced sale of its beauty and personal care brand Suave to Yellow Wood Partners LLC, a private equity firm.
Following the acquisition, Yellow Wood announced plans to create a new standalone business in New Jersey to support the Suave brand under the leadership of Daniel Alter, a 20-year Unilever veteran with global strategy and operations expertise.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed in the May 9 press release.
A representative for Yellow Wood, which is headquartered in Boston, told NJBIZ that a location for the new Suave Brands Co. has not yet been decided.
Yellow Wood invests exclusively in the consumer industry in the middle market and seeks to acquire branded consumer products that sell into a variety of channels, such as drug, food, specialty, value, club and e-commerce. Its portfolio includes footcare brand Dr. Scholl’s, self-tanning brand Isle of Paradise, skincare brand Freeman Beauty and beauty brand Real Techniques.
In a statement, Dana Schmaltz, partner at Yellow Wood, said, “The widely known Suave brand has a long heritage and strong consumer loyalty, selling over 250 million units annually and is present in 1 out of every 2 homes in America. Our firm’s extensive experience working with multi-national branded consumer packaged goods companies, such as Unilever, Bayer and Reckitt, will enable us to successfully transition Suave to an independent company within the Yellow Wood portfolio and accelerate its growth.
“Our deep expertise in the consumer goods sector and with large mass, grocery, drug, and ecommerce retailers will help us enhance Suave’s closeness with consumers and product innovation. In addition to carving out Suave and establishing an independent infrastructure, we are building the Suave Brands Co. into a beauty & personal care platform focused on democratizing trends, making them accessible to a broader consumer base,” Schmaltz added.
Alter, whose most recent role with Unilever was chief strategy and digital transformation officer in personal care, said, “I am excited to partner with Yellow Wood to lead the Suave Brands Co. and set the brand up for its next stage of growth. Our shared vision is to build the Suave Brands Co. into an industry leading beauty & personal care platform, delivering high quality products at an accessible price for consumers across North America.”
Tad Yanagi, a partner at Yellow Wood, said, “We are excited about Suave’s ability to benefit from the growing consumer demand for value-based brands. There is great opportunity to do more with Suave’s leading brand awareness and consumer loyalty and to lead that effort we are pleased to welcome Daniel Alter as CEO. His and Yellow Wood’s deep branded CPG experiences will help Suave execute on new growth levers to build the business and identify new personal care brand acquisitions.”
Outside of the U.S. and Canada, Suave will continue to be owned and operated by Unilever.

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS — To keep developers from building market-rate properties along 9W, the Borough Council will try to block their efforts at 800 Sylvan Ave.
The council introduced an ordinance to claim the property for the borough through the use of eminent domain. It calls for the borough to purchase the property at the “fair market value” for public purpose use.
The plan included in the ordinance calls for 120 affordable housing units, a new municipal/community/senior center complex, a commercial building for office and research space, two synthetic turf athletic fields and a passive natural park.
Though the introduction of the ordinance passed, it included votes from only four of the six council members. The virtual meeting was plagued by technical difficulties for some members. Mayor Mario Kranjac also removed council members from the meeting at times.
Earlier in the meeting, Kranjac talked of the importance of the ordinance and urged the members of the council to vote in favor of it.
During the vote, Councilmen Glen Luciano and David DiGregorio were not present. Councilman Tim Koutroubas voted against the ordinance, and Councilmen William Woo, Ramon Ferro and Mark Park voted in favor.
Kranjac said “the court-ordered plan completely disregards public safety, and it is the borough’s constitutional right to explore and invoke eminent domain to protect the safety of current and future residents.”
Micah Rasmussen, director of the Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics, said the power of eminent domain was delegated to local governments by the state Legislature and it is applicable when there is a “valid public purpose.”
“ 'Public purpose' is widely defined,” he said. “All the law is focused on just compensation.”
Rasmussen said that in order to use eminent domain for development, the “only restraint is establishing blight,” but once that is done, a “good faith offer” is usually made and negotiated for the municipality to purchase the property.
The borough has been in litigation with the property’s developers 800 Sylvan Avenue LLC since 2015. The case went to trial in 2019 after hundreds of residents demanded that the borough take its chances at trial rather than settle outright. At that time, a memorandum of understanding was drawn up. A deal reached in April 2019 called for 400 units to be built at 800 Sylvan Ave., including 94 townhouses and 306 apartments. Of those, 80 apartments would have been deemed affordable housing.
After the matter went to trial, a new settlement was reached in 2020 that allowed for 450 housing units to be built on the former Unilever campus, with 90 affordable units.
Last April, Judge Christine Farrington stripped the Planning Board of its control over the development. She said at the time that the borough had refused to abide by the court's mandates, including an order to rezone.
Earlier this year, Farrington ordered that the development applications by 800 Sylvan Avenue LLC be approved, both the initial 600-unit plan presented by the developers and the 450-unit plan agreed to in the settlement with the developers and the Fair Share Housing Center and approved by the council last fall. Farrington decided that the latter plan must be used as long as the settlement is in effect.
