How it works
Because our ultra-fine tea powder is instant, it’s truly as easy as 1-2-3 with 10th Avenue Tea. Simply shake the desired amount into a mug, pour hot or iced water over it and drink.
10th Avenue Tea was founded by two tea-loving, tree-hugging, entrepreneurial moms.
We realized that the average tea drinker consumes three cups per day, creating over 1,000 tea bags and other tea-related waste per person per year, which occupies space in landfills. (Not to mention the billions of plastic, quick-brewing teacups piled on top of that.) This image of waste and environmental doom was what lingered in the back of our minds every time we made a cup of tea.
And it suddenly became clear: we had to do something about it. Why can’t we make a delicious tea that won’t harm the environment? Why can’t we marry convenience with a green mindset?
That’s when 10th Avenue Tea was born. After extensive product development, we found an innovative way to achieve those goals in the form of our U.S. patent-pending product. Though we were advised to do otherwise, we held firm to our beliefs and developed a tea powder that is free of sugars, fillers and preservatives. When we found a metal shaker bottle that allowed customers to make the tea to their desired strength and was easily recycled, we knew we had the answers we were searching for.
