We are an organic loose leaf tea startup developed in the heart of Oakland by educator and tea connoisseur, Kamilah Mitchell. She created these tea blends to nourish the community and promote understanding of knowing your ingredients without compromising taste. With tea blends like Cheers, Prototype, La Luna, and Sunrise, each blend is filled with antioxidants and various health benefits ranging from anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and immune boosting properties.
As a cancer warrior and brain tumor survivor, Kamilah continues to take the holistic route in her wellness journey. These blends started from Kamilah’s love of tea and learning more about the ingredients. Cheers tea, the first blend, was handcrafted at Sereni-tea Mount Shasta. Blending ingredients such as lapacho, a known natural antibiotic, with ingredients like ginger and hibiscus, created a balancing uplifting tea for body, spirit, and mind.
As a startup in the Bay Area, cost of growth for a business includes brand strategy, team building, intentional marketing, and quality product. Until now, tea orders and business comes on the budgeting of cost of living, that limits our growth. With purchasing bulk supplies and establishing a strong business structure and presence, we would be able to grow and maintain the path of becoming a sustainable business.
The research is showing tea is becoming the choice. The choice at cafes, meetings, gatherings and to truly warm the spirit. Recognizing ingredients matter and ensuring taste is as magical as the ingredients, Tea With Meaning is ready to be the choice blend for holistic lifestyle, health and wellness. Even with a dab of honey.
