Striving Tea Company Start-up - The Reinvention of Tea

Check out a new tea company. It’s a non-traditional tea start-up that offers unique blends for a younger market. Their goal is to rejuvenate tea. The company’s slogan, “Not Your Grandmother’s Tea”, fits right in.

Good luck!

I hate to say it, but I see this… and all I can think of is the Geico commercial with the “I’m not your daddy, I’m your grandpa!” slogan.

I’m interested, but I just hope there are more teas to come! Apricot, Almond and Cafe Latte teas aren’t really groundbreaking anymore (but one day when I was drinking only boring tea bags they probably would have been!) Looking forward to seeing it grow.

Sounds like another Teavana to me. That’s a good thing.

I am not sure that tea needs to be reinvented but rather to be fully appreciated more for the health benefits originally offered with a cup of green tea. Tea’s original purpose was to heal what ailed you.

In viewing your site I like the Green Tea with pineapple and honey with 50lb at $4.99 or so? Not bad.

Good luck with all and happy teas!
