About

    

While working at an investment bank and navigating the perils of a PhD, our founding team decided that we were tired of being tired. The daily routines of fueling ourselves with sugary sodas, chemically-sweetened teas, and high-octane coffees had taken their tolls on our bodies and left us searching for a better solution.   

After almost a year of formulation and brand development, we're excited to make Tempo available to you today!

Tempo is a new line of organic and unsweetened sparkling teas crafted to provide a healthy and uplifting boost of natural energy, with zero calories and no added sugars or sweeteners. Our recipes honor the revitalizing taste of premium teas and the vibrancy of unique spice blends to create a fun and functional beverage. We believe that good food is good fuel, and we hope that Tempo will inspire you to refresh your daily routine.

  

Our Kickstarter Campaign  

Help us bring Tempo to life! We hope to make Tempo available to anyone that is tired of the sugary and chemically-sweetened beverages on the market today, and wants an authentically healthy and energizing option that doesn’t fall flat on flavor.

We need your help to support our expansion costs to fuel a new production run of bottles using environmentally-conscious materials, and to build awareness for our mission as we prepare to scale our distribution. 

  

Our Teas

Our two launch flavors feature organic, whole-leaf teas, supported by a unique blend of spices sourced with intention.

  

Green Tea   

 

    

Black Tea   

 

    

Sustainability

At Tempo, we believe that we can inspire positive change through our beverages. We are committed to integrating sustainability into all aspects of our company – from the sourcing of organic ingredients to the use of environmentally-responsible containers, ultimately creating a cohesive platform for social change that champions environmental causes we believe in.

  

   

We use 100% recyclable glass and avoid the use of plastic materials whenever possible. We love the ocean. Not only is the ocean a source of endless inspiration and wonder, but it is our planet’s life support system. Human health is inescapably tied to the health of the oceans. 

At Tempo, we believe that by restoring the health of the oceans, we can make a difference in all other areas of our lives – from the air we breathe, to the food we eat, to the tea we drink.  

Our conservation mission goes beyond charity. Tempo sponsors co-branded research missions that put our team front and center in the data gathering process. We work alongside our cause partner, Beneath the Waves, to tag and track threatened sharks over large areas of the ocean to aid in their conservation.  In fact, some of our premium perks offer backers the chance to join us on one of these incredible shark tagging expeditions!  

 

    

Now, for the rewards

Backers of our campaign have the chance to get exclusive access to our sparkling teas, awesome Tempo-inspired merchandise, and incredible experiences! 

Some really exciting experiential perks from our partners also include:

  • One-week of unlimited yoga classes at any CorePower Yoga Studio in the US (160 locations)
  • Tickets to Daybreaker, an early-morning fitness and dance party that promotes health, wellness, and community (available in >10 US cities)
  • Shark tagging excursions with our cause partner Beneath the Waves

Risks and challenges

Our team is committed to producing the highest quality products using real, organic ingredients, and using environmentally-responsible materials wherever possible. Producing clean and healthy beverages at scale is inherently challenging, but we have overcome many of these hurdles in the last year of development and are prepared to deliver your products in a timely fashion.

We will be sending updates to our backers on our progress throughout and after our campaign, and plan to ship our rewards in December 2017 and January 2018.

Thank you for joining us on our journey to provide a healthy, flavorful, and fun option to energize your daily routine!
