OUR STORY

From childhood friends to a wild weekend in Prague, we never thought tea would be our calling. It was in some tiny Czech teahouse during our college study abroad trips that we got hooked on loose leaf tea. Three months later, we started making our own. Our professors and parents thought we were nuts, but a couple friends believed in us, and helped blend tea in exchange for pizza and beer.

We’re a tight knit crew that keeps it simple; all natural, loose leaf tea blends with real fruits and herbs. Today, our 50 flavorful & functional loose leaf teas can be found nationwide in 6,500 specialty, natural and conventional grocery stores along with hundreds of cafes! We tell you what matters: what it does for you, what it tastes like, and how to make it. So what’s stopping you? Find your function, pick your flavor and get ready to Live Loose!
