Ivy’s Tea Co.

So I was perusing the innanetz, well more specifically YouTube, and I came across this review of a tea company. Don’t ask how I got there because I have no clue. Y’all know YouTube is a wormhole, you go on for one thing right quick and 2 hours later you’re looking at something totally unrelated and in my case I often forget what I originally came on there to find. Anyway, the young lady was doing a review of this black owned tea company. Now tea is my favorite beverage. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, very seldom, so tea is my main thing. I just love it. And I also love supporting small businesses. Especially black small businesses so this seemed like a win-win situation.

So after I saw this I immediately clicked on the link to their website and started following them on Instagram and Facebook. The name of the company is Ivy’s Tea Co. So I do this quick post on Instagram about how dope they are and ordered some stuff. Well, my tea has finally arrived.

First of all. I love the packaging. Simple but still different. I’m already excited and I haven’t even opened the box yet. So I open the box and…

The first thing I see is this hand addressed card on top. Okay, see now you’re doing something to me. I love handwritten stuff. I always send a personal note when I send my products out too so now I know how the person feels when they receive it and that feeling is awesome! Now if you follow my blog you know my penmanship is horrible but I think that’s what makes mine unique. As they struggle to decipher my handwriting they know that I tried. Or they think a 5 year old wrote it. Anyway, back to the card I received. It was a hand written note from the founder. The founder, y’all!

So I’m all over here gushing and blushing and feeling special inside. Here’s what the packaging kinda looks like. I love it.

So I ordered the black and yellow (left) and green bae (right).

I must confess. I have never had loose tea before. I’ve had the different flavored teas from other major companies but they always came bagged. I knew that these would be loose but I wanted to support and try them anyway.  The instructions printed on the bottle actually helped put my mind at ease that I wouldn’t mess the whole thing up. So I followed the instructions and put the recommended amount of tea in my strainer and fired up the kettle and viola! My first cup was good to go. I tried the Black and Yellow first with just some raw organic honey and dried organic hibiscus. Y’all know I’m a sucker for raw organic stuff.

After letting it steep for about 3 to 5 minutes, I took a taste. Y’all… Y’all! I think I’m in love! I have definitely found a new tea supplier and will be ordering more. So I say all of that to say this; I highly recommend Ivy’s Tea Company. This is a great tea company that I think is going places. Great product, packaging and customer service as well. They get my stamp of approval, for whatever that’s worth.
