An 'exclusive first run' of incredibly unique, handmade and delicious Coffee-Inspired Teas. Welcome to change.

If you like insanely great tasting drinks, then this is for you!

Java Tea is a handmade loose-leaf tea blend made with organic teas, herbs, flavors and spices, creating a drink that emulates our favorite premium coffee beverages... but they are all made from tea; very, very healthy tea!

...and to one-up the already superior healthiness we have infused all of our drinks with natural green tea extract - giving you 2x the antioxidants!

We have created an initial coffee-inspired tea line of character beverages which are each an homage to the types of people who inspire us and change our world every day. The Revolutionary (Vanilla Latte). The Diplomat (Caramel Macchiato). The Liberator (Dark Chocolate Mocha). And we plan to add to this line as our company grows with your love and support (already have some great ideas)

I wish I was sharing a cup with you right now (and I hope to be really soon). With your funding through Kickstarter I will be able to make the first exclusive run of these teas and get them to you so you can share in the dream.

That’s not everything though. My hope is that this won’t just stop with a great tasting drink. But that Java Tea will be an experience. That it will help us slow down. Taking time out of our chaotic schedules and taking in the moment while you hand craft a brilliant cup of tea and share it with someone over something meaningful - because great things really do happen when we slow down and connect.

I can’t do it alone. I need your help and support. First - Please get my back and back this project by donating some money and getting some brilliant stuff in return. Then - get your social network fired up; share this with your family, friends, facebook & twitter followers, literally everyone! If we can reach the $35,000 goal then the dream will come true and Java Tea will become a reality.

So lets do it together! Join me and help make Java Tea.

Thanks!

About the Teas:

Inspired by our favorite premium coffee beverages our teas are bold, full-bodied and incredibly flavorful. The extensive blend of organic ingredients come together harmoniously to highlight and intensify the tea-made-coffee-like drinks. Our character beverages are:

The Revolutionary: This is the original blend, where it all started. Made with loads of organic vanilla beans. Inspired by the Vanilla Latte. Crafted as an homage to those who change the world for good.

The Liberator: Harvested fairly and ethically. Filled to the brim with chocolates, this is our Dark Chocolate Mocha infused tea. Motivated by those who have peacefully made a stand against injustice.

The Diplomat: A charismatic ambassador of peace. Subtle. Sweet. Inspired. The healthier Caramel Macchiato. Made with real caramel creme chunks. Incited by the few who have brought together many.

First off let me say (bias of course) that this tea tastes incredible. Steeped, french pressed, aeropressed, cold brewed or espresso brewed, no matter how you do it, it just tastes great. Now, I prefer to brew it using the Italian style of espresso brewing on a stove top espresso maker (moka pot) because it extracts bolder flavors that are hidden away from the typical tea brewing process and help create that full-bodied late-like drink we’ve all grown to love.

If you dare; brew these teas in a stove top espresso maker (moka pot), add a small brown sugar cube, and top with frothed milk and dark chocolate shavings... then enjoy to the fullest! And don’t forget to share.

And when you’re in the mood for something cool, double-strength brew a batch and pour it over ice for the best iced latte you’ve ever had!

About Me:

I grew up in a coffee dominated home. Both my mom and pop drank a religious cup every morning (and most days my pop had an extra 6). Though I have always loved the taste of coffee (and still do) I just couldn’t help but want it to be healthy like how tea was. Cake & eat it too syndrome. Well, after meeting with a tea guru and painstakingly working on a smorgasbord of tea blends sourced from all over the world and seven years later ... I was able to actually get that “cake & eat it” fantasy. Now whether I’m waking up, working, entertaining, or ending my day, I have an espresso cup of Java Tea; and I feel great about it. AND because there is almost no caffeine, it makes for a great night cap (or treat for my kids - who are obsessed with it too). When you are loading your body full of antioxidants you are improving your health and quality of life - which changes your world dramatically. And that’s how I see it, for everyone; breaking away from the unhealthy to-go-instant-coffee lifestyle, and taking time to slow brew and hand craft a great tea. So do it. Though it’s a small cup, I am a better and healthier person because of Java Tea.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Believe it or not, there is a lot that goes into making a brand new tea blend and packaging it up to get it into peoples hands. The biggest of these challenges is manufacturing the tea tins and sourcing the highest quality, most ethical teas. As with many things, having the support and backing to do so is the solution. That is where you come in. With the funds from this project I will be able to complete this multi-step process and get this limited edition first run of amazing teas to you just in time for the sharing and caring holidays!
