Business Description

We are a tea company whose mission is to educate others about the virtures of tea drinking. We visit many of the farms our tea comes from to "ground truth" the tea quality and worker environment.

How does your business make a positive impact on the community?

We gives samples of hot tea to everyone who comes through our door. We make it a point to help educate others about the attributes of drinking tea. We contribute tea to fundraisers and silent auctions on a weekly basis. We host First Friday events for artists and musicians. We share our tea travel experineces with our community with blogs, radio and newspaper interviews, and tea tastings. We provide a warm, inviting environment for folks to spend time at minimal costs.

What would you do with a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, training, and help from a SCORE mentor to grow your business?

We would use this money to build additional seating, improve lighting in our space, and raise the hourly wage of one of our employees. We would use the training to learn about best practices in marketing and social media. We would ask for training in sales.
