Yes, it’s too hot for even the shade of an olive tree to tempt you out into the open right now. Stay cool, though: a gourmet service will shield you from the sun. Sink blissfully into the mellow shadow of Olive Tree, a beautiful online gourmet store that brings you carefully sourced all-natural ingredients, the finest from the Mediterranean and around the world.

The Middle Sea used to be called the source of all life; it’s also the source of Olive Tree’s first cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oils. Look no further for rich, luscious Tuscan extra virgin olive oil with less than 0.8% acidity, extracted through the most careful methods, or olive oil for everyday cooking that’s light and perfect for the summer (and your heart!) You’ll also find regional olive oils from across Italy, a range of Monocultivar and Bivarietale extra-virgin olive oils, to help you recreate those gorgeous meals you ate in Liguria, Sicily, Puglia, Calabria and Umbria.

Linger longer in their cool store to discover sea salt straight from the salt pans of Trapani and Marsala, Sicily. Further afield, there’s black truffle sea salt, white truffle butter, and mushroom and truffle cream; tahini from 100% natural sesame seeds and lots more.

Restock the staples with the very best of Mediterranean stock at —- there’s Italian rice, organic black, red and white quinoa, and gourmet canned tomatoes. Don’t forget to drink your milk, either: Olive Tree’s found the happiest and laziest, grass fed Irish cows to produce Europaea Free Range Farms milk, in 1.5% and 3.5% fat all-natural, hormone-free milk. And coming really soon – organic almond milk by Europaea Vegan Farms.

Once you’ve made your choices, feel even lighter with a 25% discount on all their products (milk excluded — get yourself a subscription for a 15% discount on milk!) Take a nap while you wait; they’ll deliver to your doorstep for free on an order of Rs 2000 or more, anywhere in India.

Better lait than never! Go on: don’t leaf these Olives out of your life.
