One day on accident, we discovered the wonderfulness that is 10th Avenue Tea and have loved it ever since! Today we are featuring a drink recipe from our friends Morgan and Ann, the co-founders of 10th Avenue Tea.
Ann Foley and Morgan Walsh are not only the cofounders of 10th Avenue Tea, but they are also tea-loving sisters-in-law. Though they each had busy lives before founding the company (stay-at-home moms to 4 kids and 3 kids, entrepreneur, actress), they both had a strong passion for the environment and a desire to reduce waste. Their concern for the environment combined with the search for the perfect, most convenient cup of tea is what led them to create their unique all-natural, instant tea powder.
What you might not consider when drinking a cup of tea is the environmental impact. Just like straws, people don’t give a second thought about what happens to tea bags when you’re finished steeping them. The average tea drinker consumes 3 cups per day creating over 1,000 tea bags and other tea-related waste that goes straight to a landfill everyday! Don’t even get me started on those plastic quick-brew cups! The 10th Avenue Tea gals got to thinking about all this waste and therefore came up with a convenient and eco-friendly tea powder option.
What I love about this product is the fact that their powder alternative is actually MORE convenient than a tea bag or a pod in making a good cup of tea. This eco-friendly view of tea is just another great way we get to change the world. Congrats Ann and Morgan!
